Workiva has integrated its Wdesk platform with Anaplan’s Connected Planning platform to offer a comprehensive solution for modernizing critical finance and accounting functions, including planning and analysis, management reporting, industry specific regulatory compliance processes, enterprise-wide consolidations and financial reporting.

When integrated, data flows directly between the platforms, providing Workiva customers with access to the full breadth and power of the Anaplan Connected Planning platform. Customers can now automate and structure their outdated, disconnected spreadsheet planning and analysis processes.

After users integrate their planning, analysis and reporting data from Anaplan into the Wdesk platform, they can benefit from the full capabilities of Wdesk, including synchronized data, dynamic commentary, controlled collaboration, granular permissions and clear audit trails. Wdesk streamlines how users create integrated reports, enabling narrative to be linked to data across documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

“Our partnership with Anaplan creates a full end-to-end solution for transforming financial planning and reporting processes, including company performance reports and public disclosures,” said Matt Rizai, Chairman and CEO of Workiva. “Anaplan enables our customers to connect critical planning data directly to Wdesk, which becomes a central repository of trusted management and regulatory reporting data, with powerful linking, auditability and control features.”

“Our partnership with Workiva demonstrates our continued commitment to help our customers achieve better business performance through connected planning that is dynamic, collaborative and intelligent,” said Sampath Gromatam, Vice President of Product at Anaplan. “Anaplan is an open platform with a growing partner ecosystem, and this partnership adds to the flexibility and choice that provides our customers with an end-to-end solution for planning and regulatory reporting.”

The Wdesk and Anaplan platform integration is available immediately.

This week, Anaplan also announced the future of Connected Planning at Hub 2018. Industry visionaries, leaders and experts, as well as people looking to be inspired, are gathering at Hub 2018 through March 7, in Las Vegas to share the vision for Connected Planning.
