The #1 Planful alternative is Pigment


Multidimensional modeling engine

Granular access controls and audit logs

Real-time integrated planning

By connecting in real time teams, applications and use cases in one platform, Pigment enables seamless data flows and provides organizations with a single source of truth.

Planful provides a suite of products that don’t fully interact with one another. Connecting and maintaining a connection between them can be a clunky, time-consuming process.

Increased collaboration

Teams can easily add comments directly at the cell level, assign tasks and notify collaborators of changes, in any model or report.

Collaboration in the platform is limited to reporting only, with users not being able to add a comment directly into a model or a plan.

Simple model maintenance

Pigment provides a single platform with a single source of code, owned and maintained by business users.

Maintaining a suite of 3 solutions requires a variety of skill sets and complex coding language, which may result in relying on external consultants.

Native direct integrations

Pigment integrates directly with your source systems and continues to develop new native integrations.

Integrations are not native and go through a third-party platform. Setting up a new integration may result in additional costs over time.

Native what-if scenario planning

Business users can create and update any number of scenarios in one-click, allowing them to quickly visualize and understand the impact of their decisions.

Versions are not native in all of Planful’s products and therefore don’t interact with one another, which may lead to forecasting discrepancies.

Flexible planning

Because Pigment isn’t limited in capacity or number of users, organizations can easily adapt their models to their evolving needs.

Previous Planful users have moved to Pigment because the platform would often break when making changes.

Intuitive modeling

With Pigment’s natural syntax, building a model is within everyone’s reach - no need to learn a new language. With the Formula Playground, users can even test the outcome.

Planful’s products Dynamic Planning and Structured Planning each come with their own code base, which may lead users to learn how to model in two different technologies.

Data integrations

Keep everything in sync

Pigment integrates with your existing tech stack to free your team of time-consuming tasks and data transfer errors.
