Customer growth rate and bookings increased at a rate of 230% in 2014.

Anaplan experienced a 91% customer growth rate for 2014 and its bookings increased at a growth rate of 230% over the same period.

Growth in these bookings represents 2.1 times more bookings in financial year 2015(FY15) than the previous two years combined.

Anaplan is the planning cloud for Finance, Sales, Operations and HR. It already has a name in Finance but it is now making a noticeable impact across sales, operations, and HR.

One of its customers is HP that leveraged Anaplan's Territory and Quota Planning app to reach its potential.

"We're using Anaplan for highly effective planning and scenario analysis, and we're delivering goals to our global sales force faster than we ever have," said Bob Slaby, vice president, HP Sales Operations. "The simulations we run in Anaplan give us insights into where we should focus our sales teams for the best results--impossible when the data sat in disconnected spreadsheets around the world."

Other 2014 highlights

Anaplan's customer base now extends across 20 countries and the company has doubled users to more than 35,000 across the world.

The company was named a "Visionary" in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Sales Performance Management (SPM) published in January, 2015.

It opened new offices in Russia and Malaysia, and expanded Anaplan's Hub Conference in 2014 from two cities to five globally.

A version of Anaplan's Territory and Quota Planning app is now available in Anaplan's App Hub, which is changing the way enterprise apps are built and deployed across different departments.

Pre-built apps designed for specific verticals by industry experts help the companies to gain a competitive advantage.
