Adesso has launched a new Annual Planner that’s designed to simplify and streamline annual and semi-annual scenario planning.
It enables users to avoid dual entry of plans, meant to allow consumer goods companies to reduce administrative time and increase analysis into trade plans and results.
Two versions of the planner are available, and they have the flexibility to hide, rearrange or eliminate columns to create a tailored view. Users can plan by promoted groups or SKU, as well as compare planning scenarios across a variety of KPIs. They also support top-down or bottom-up forecasting, and provide metrics around retailer price, margin and distributor upcharges.
The tech is designed to easily integrate new clients’ spreadsheet planners in order to eradicate the need to key in deals.
