Anaplan names first Kiwi channel partner

20 Aug 2018

Anaplan has on-boarded its first New Zealand channel partner with Mindfull, a business solutions provider with more than 250 local and international clients.

It provides a range of data management, planning, budgeting and forecasting solutions across distinct vertical markets, including agriculture, finance, health, property development, local government, retail and utilities.

“With change through business transformation rapidly accelerating across New Zealand organisations, we concluded that Anaplan would be the perfect fit moving forward for companies seeking an enterprise planning and performance solution built for the cloud age,” says Mindfull CEO Belinda Johnson.

“At the same time, we had a gap in our business offering and felt that the overall Anaplan solution set in terms of product, support, training and planning transformation services would be an excellent complement to our existing business.”

Mindfull has been traditionally focused in the office of finance and Anaplan will enable expansion of its services and solutions across different departments within its current customer base.

“We can now offer with confidence a solution which incorporates supply chain, sales and operations planning in a single platform, says Johnson.

“This will empower us to offer customers from the chief of operations to supply chain department management a new way to rethink how they can potentially transform their enterprise planning processes.”

Anaplan’s cloud planning platform enables an organisation to run virtually any planning process by connecting data, people, and plans in every part of a business.

Solution modules include Planning, Forecasting, Modelling, Supply Chain Planning, Sales Performance Management, Performance Management, and S&OP.

“We’re very pleased to announce our new partnership with Mindfull,” Anaplan A/NZ channels director Chris Wilkins says.

“The company ticked all the boxes to support our expansion in New Zealand, including its track record of success and technical expertise in supporting both public and private sector organisations with their analytics, supply chain and business planning and performance transformation requirements.

“We look forward to working with Mindfull to create a mutually beneficial cloud revenue stream which is proving attractive for Anaplan throughout the Asia Pacific region.”
