antares planner for self-service BI

Benefit from a variety of professional planning functions with complete integration of your valuable BI data. The ability to plan up to three levels in combination with freely selectable scenarios also allows you to directly compare different planning scenarios. Thanks to automatic distribution functions and individual plan number and structure data definitions, you will be able to carry out multi-dimensional top-down or bottom-up planning.

As an SSBI application, antares planner for self-service BI is intuitive to use and does not require any technical knowledge on the part of the business users. Thus, the cooperation with the IT department and its service is basically no longer necessary, so that these and possibly other departments are relieved and can concentrate on their tasks.

FAQ

I already have an ad hoc/self-service tool for data analysis in use. Is the connection to antares planner possible without any problems?

Yes, we guarantee a smooth connection of our software to your existing business intelligence platforms for analysis.

What types of planning are available?

The following plan types can be used: standard sales planning, forecast, rolling and multi-year planning. The plan data can be easily adjusted using the top-down or bottom-up method.

Can different scenarios be used?

You have the option of creating and planning several scenarios (e.g. worst case, best case, expected case) per plan. Thanks to the integrated authorisation options, customer-specific authorisations can be assigned within individual scenarios.

Where does the data for the planning come from?

The data can be imported into the software from various sources, whether from SAP, Qlik or our analysis and reporting software antares analyzer. Thanks to current bidirectional interface technologies, there are no restrictions here.

Can data be exported from antares planner?

Data can be exported via Excel plug-in or exchanged via a bidirectional database interface.

Is it possible to "freeze" data?

Yes! Within a scenario, any plan coordinates can be fixed, i.e. written down. It is also possible to "freeze" entire scenarios or individual plan strands (e.g. representative - customer - article).

Can comments be stored for individual plan combinations?

Yes, comments can be stored for individual coordinates as well as for plan strings. These can also be stored for a specific period. This means that it is always possible to justify deviations in a specific planning period.

How is data synchronised?

The data can be synchronized with the bottom-up or top-down method, as already in the individual plans, per individual selection option.

Is there an integrated reporting system?

Yes! The finished plans can be analysed in antares analyzer via our standard interface and distributed with the report portfolio functionality. It is also possible to transfer the data into your existing system in order to use the reporting system there.
