Rethinking Planning, Budgeting & Reporting with AvalonBay

How a Publicly-Traded REIT Upgraded Its Reporting Process

TUESDAY | MARCH 26 , 2019 at 11am est


The right planning process is often considered a utopia for executive and finance teams. Tying plans, budgets, marketing metrics, customer health scores, and other data points together to create a cohesive view of the business is tough. Integrated planning is the dream, but the reality is a little more… basic.

Join this month’s webinar to discover how AvalonBay, a publicly-traded REIT, started to notice how its old way of planning created ripples outside of the company walls. By upgrading the process, AvalonBay boosted shareholder confidence and - perhaps more importantly - was able to double down on its mission of creating a better way to live.

Save your spot now to see how companies like AvalonBay are rethinking their planning processes to drive long-term growth and make faster, more informed strategic business decisions.
