join our panel to explore the challenges of managing profitability in times of high inflation

19 September 2023, 10 AM BST / 11 AM CET (45 minutes)
PANELISTS:  Anna Latoszek, Finance & IS/IT Director, Savencia Poland, Pawel Kowalski, Director at Profit&

As inflation continues to rise companies face what seems like ever-increasing costs.  Businesses have choices, such as balancing pricing decisions with the need to remain competitive.  In addition, other factors come into play.  Supply chains are absorbing the same cost pressures and this drives disruption, customer behaviour becomes more unpredictable, and traditional loyalties are interrupted by the need to make limited budgets stretch as far as possible.

There is no doubt that the competitive landscape has changed in recent times, and companies are looking for new ways to be more agile and responsive. 

In this webinar, our panel will discuss the critical need for Finance to deliver detailed, timely, and accurate cost and profitability insights to fulfill their role as Finance Business Partners. Anna will share her experience developing the foundations underpinning this role at Savencia Group. You'll learn how the Anaplan Platform provides real-time insights that enable leadership teams to collaborate effectively on critical issues as they arise, and continuously respond to change.  

You will also have the opportunity to see inside the Profit& Cost and Profitability Management Solution, on the Anaplan platform, which delivers real-time access to:

  • Customer, product, and channel cost and profitability analytics
  • What-if scenarios
  • Driver-based plans
