Model your business as it evolves

With growth comes complexity. As you bring drugs and devices to market, you need to plan for commercial readiness. Model and forecast scenarios across product mix, distribution channels, discounts and rebates offered, or model the options between R&D and acquisition. With Workday Adaptive Planning, you can make faster decisions and engage business users with powerful modeling for budgeting, forecasting, and planning. You can also model integrated P&L, balance sheet, and cash flow statements to see the impact of your decision on gross-to-net and cash.

Continuously forecast to gain business agility

In a volatile environment, you need to keep an eye on the financial health of your pharmaceutical or biotech company. With Workday Adaptive Planning, you can implement a rolling forecast that allows your executives and department leaders to gain business agility in a rapidly changing industry. For example, your team can analyze the impact on the 12-month cash flow before starting a new project. Quickly update and analyze the forecast when project timelines change. Analyze and adjust sales forecast by drugs or devices and see the impact upstream and downstream in real time.

With Workday Adaptive Planning, you can provide analytics that are best-suited for the end user with dashboards, data visualizations, forecasting models, and charts that are easy to create, personalize, and share securely.
