Phase – 1

Individual Business models in Anaplan and Data Integrations July 2014 – Feb 2015

This Phase initiated with the development of all the models that include the need for the budgeting and forecast like Malls, Mills/Premium Outlets, Management Co., SPG Hub, User Configuration for security, Workforce Planning etc. Each Model has many functional areas that included Dashboards and then modules within them

Generated test plans, test scripts and documented test results

Phase – 2

Corporate Screen revise in Anaplan and PAF (Project Approval Form) March 2015 – July 2015

After the functionality has been complete on the 1st phase, this phase required more revise to the Home Office screens in Anaplan from the original implementation design. The current setup, while functionally complete, requires users to continually click back and forth among screens. Redesigning these screens to align with the current state workflow will significantly improve the productivity of home office staff as well as improving the usability of the application. The additional enhancements that are inclusive to Phase 2 changes in Anaplan were Gift Card Dashboard, Field Marketing Budgets, SBV and CapEx Forecast, Miscellaneous Income & Expense Accounts – Comments, Prop Mgmt Expense Units & Driver Export – Comments
