Live Webinar: Gross-to-Net (GTN) Management Using Anaplan

Move this complex process out of shared Excel spreadsheets into a powerful solution which will scale and flex as your business does. Register here for the live webinar on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.

Anaplan and Impetus presented a GTN solution in a connected planning context at CBI’s GTN summit for biotech, pharma, and other life sciences companies of all sizes and stages. Miss the presentation? Join 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 forecasting.

Learn more about Anaplan, a business user owned and operated platform that supports GTN management, and all of your organization’s connected planning needs.
