Workday Adaptive Planning for every team

Give your IT team a break, and give everyone a single source of truth

Until now, planners were typically left with two familiar, but inefficient options:

Option 1: Overly complex and expensive legacy planning solutions that prevent true enterprise-wide planning and restrict access to a small group of “experts.”

Option 2: The chaotic and error prone combination of spreadsheets and emails that kill productivity and generate confusion (if you have nightmares about consolidating hundreds of spreadsheets and tracing errors to their source, you’re not alone).

Why stick with the status quo when you can play a more strategic role in your organization?

Workday Adaptive Planning connects systems, data, and business managers so that:

You understand and are prepared for any scenario.
You can make better business decisions more efficiently.
You can empower your organization with real-time insights.

Before Workday Adaptive Planning, I personally used 185 spreadsheets and 400 workbooks. Workday Adaptive Planning has allowed for greater flexibility and integrity within the budget system. I now use about ten spreadsheets that are linked and automatically updated with Workday Adaptive Planning OfficeConnect.
