Echo Global Logistics, a leading provider of technology-enabled
transportation and supply chain management services, uses the Anaplan
platform for enterprise-wide budgeting, forecasting, and planning. The
company reduced its budget cycle by approximately 50% year over year,
saving more than six weeks of time by leveraging the flexibility and
intuitive nature of the platform across the enterprise to build complex
business scenarios and engage in real-time analysis.

"With Anaplan, we are doing things that we couldn't do before," said
Brett Lukowicz, Director of Finance at Echo Global Logistics. "On top of
the existing value of the platform, we are excited for the new user
experience to deliver increased efficiencies in our planning process by
making it easier for our more than 100 users to actively engage in
planning and collaborate in real time."

Anaplan's new platform experience allows users to update plans quickly,
visualize impacts in real time, and make decisions confidently. For
example, sales representatives can update sales opportunity forecasts in
real time on the mobile app, providing sales leadership rapid visibility
to sales attainment and financial performance.

Anaplan's new and enhanced features include:

  • A new, modern user interface (UI) that facilitates
    enterprise-wide planning and drives personalized experiences for every
    user of the Anaplan platform. Users enjoy visually impactful, highly
    customized views and reports to drive insightful planning and analysis
    for every business group throughout the enterprise.
  • A redesigned home screen that provides a personalized
    experience so users can build plans and execute quickly, access
    customized views and multidimensional reports, and increase
    productivity with faster, direct access to the most important
    information and applications.

    making on the go, with a highly responsive and secure experience that
    simplifies the informed decision-making process across devices.
