The Planful Virtual Tour 2020 Kicks Off May 19th: 3 Days of Continuous Planning Success

We are so very excited to bring together leaders and practitioners in finance and FP&A to celebrate the vision of Continuous Planning with the Planful Virtual Tour 2020! 

Starting this Tuesday, May 19 and continuing for three days, the Virtual Tour will feature something for everyone. Planful customers such as Bose, Carta and the Boston Red Sox will be detailing their success with Continuous Planning. Planful team members will be announcing new and exciting offerings to maximize productivity and increase the impact of FP&A. And, we’ll have a  keynote address from noted author, analyst, and advisor, R “Ray” Wang, founder of Constellation Research.

Visit the Planful Virtual Tour website to register for this free online event.

Each day of the Planful Virtual Tour will feature a dynamic combination of customer stories, keynotes, and Planful solution overviews and deep dives. Here’s what you can expect.

Fantastic Customers

Planful customers are always the highlight of our events. Those joining us on the Planful Virtual Tour are Bose, Boston Red Sox, Carta, Nature’s Sunshine, Planar, and SmartyPants. Their sessions will be spread across the three days, so please view the detailed agenda for specific times and dates.

FP&A professionals from each of these organizations will take the virtual stage to showcase how Planful has helped them achieve a vision of Continuous Planning. They’ll show how they’re accelerating consolidation and close times and accelerating planning and decision-making through company-wide financial collaboration and connection. They’ll also detail how they’re using Continuous Planning to regroup and recover from the COVID-19 crisis. 

Compelling Keynotes

Two very special keynote speakers will kick off the Planful Virtual Tour. To kickoff the event on Tuesday, May 19, Planful CEO Grant Halloran will talk about the current crisis and its impact on FP&A teams. He’ll also dive into Continuous Planning and how it can better equip entire companies with more agility and collaboration as they work to preserve jobs and conserve cash. Finally, he’ll be joined by Planful CFO Shane Hansen to look at both Continuous Planning and the current crisis through the lens of the CFO.

Following Grant’s session will be a special keynote from R “Ray” Wang, Principal Analyst, Founder, and Chairman of Constellation Research. He’s also a best-selling author and prolific blogger, and will use his deep expertise and research experience to explore business continuity best practices and the importance of cloud and Continuous Planning in today’s increasingly unpredictable world. It’s a session you won’t want to miss!

Expanded Solutions

We’ll have nearly two dozen Planful executives, technologists, and product experts on hand to showcase what’s new and what’s coming in 2020 for Planful’s long list of products, solutions, and offerings.

Our full agenda will cover a variety of product capabilities, use-cases, and customer stories – all designed to show you how Planful delivers fast and agile decision cycles, rapid what-if scenario planning and analysis, and accelerated month-end close and FP&A cycle times.

We’ll also have our product team lay out their roadmap for 2020, and showcase some of the newest features in Planful that increase collaboration, enable more insightful reporting and analysis, modernize workforce planning, and put to work new predictive capabilities. 

See the detailed agenda for specific times and dates

Virtual Fun

Obviously, we would have much rather been spending three days traveling across our planned host cities of Chicago, New York, and the Bay Area. But we will be offering prizes and special nods to each of the cities during the Virtual Tour. Pay attention for our fun trivia questions throughout the event. If you answer correctly, you’ll be entered into a raffle to  win one of the great prizes we have available.

We can’t wait to (virtually) see you there!
