Several years ago, I was asked to put together a presentation for the Impetus team on the topic of working remotely. I’ve been working primarily from home going back to 2012 when I was helping to run the operations of a multi-million-dollar professional service firm with a fairly large, distributed workforce. By now it’s a safe to say I am both a believer and advocate for its benefits.
From its inception, Impetus was organized to enable its people with the option to to work remotely by adopting fantastic, forward-thinking tools such as Box, Zoom, Slack, Trello, Workplace, and Anaplan. By effectively leveraging these tools and developing a culture around how they’re used, our growing team, including people across the US and now internationally, benefit from the tight-knit relationships they can help build. We have now been working remotely and using these tools for so many years, that it’s become second nature for us.
I was recently asked to share this presentation with our Keyrus colleagues and decided to commit the presentation to a recording for consumption. In case it might be beneficial to anyone new to working remotely, please find a recording of that presentation below.
Last week, Impetus Solution Architect and Master Anaplanner Justin Erenstein partnered with Anaplan’s Noelle Murphy to introduce 59 Managerial Accounting students from SUNY Geneseo to the Anaplan platform. The future Anaplanners participated in a 2-day on-campus bootcamp featuring Level 1 Model Building
Mr. Erenstein, a ’11 SUNY Geneseo grad, became aware of his
alma mater’s desire to build out their Business Analytics credentialing
opportunities and knew that Anaplan would be a great addition to the student’s
Justin, who is one of Impetus’ Enablement professors and a CPA, leveraged his experience with Anaplan and Impetus’ training and enablement offerings to guide students through learning how to create lists, import data, and write formulas. He discussed with the class the distinct advantage graduating as a certified Anaplan model builder would give them in the job market and that Anaplan coupled with an Accounting degree can open the door to many opportunities.
Next up on the student’s agenda will be to use Anaplan for an Activity-Based-Costing project.

Impetus’ upcoming LIVE 30-minute webinar for a recap.
Gross-to-net (GTN) management is
complex, dynamic, unique, and proprietary. Further, the impact of this
time-consuming process on your organization’s financials is material. There is
a need for well-defined processes and models to support accruals, true-ups,
forecasting, reporting, and analytics. These models must also be flexible
enough to change along with your business.
In this webinar we will demonstrate
how a typical pharmaceutical organization can approach building GTN processes
in Anaplan. While every pharmaceutical organization handles gross-to-net
differently, we will present the flexibility of the Anaplan platform and walk
through channel forecasting by brand, net sales forecasting, and accrual
