Description of Ganacos
Ganacos is a multidimensional spreadsheet. It is inspired by spreadsheets on one hand and business intelligence tools on the other hand. It allows to enter datas and to define calculation logics via formulas in the manner of a spreadsheet. But it also allows to work in many dimensions like a data analysis tool.
The software is simple to handle and does not require any technical skills.
The first application of Ganacos concerns the planning problems faced by companies. Instead of rigid system of boxes as in a usual spreadsheet, Ganacos allows to define dimensions and to plan operations according to the value of these dimensions. This allows the user to work in different levels of data aggregation.
In parallel to the planning process, users can easily generate data in Ganacos which allows them to test hypothetical scenarios.
Use of the Ganacos software
The Ganacos application can be used for a lot of varied tasks the same way that a spreadsheet is not designed for a particular use. Some examples are listed below.
One of the use concerns the planning of demand and production operations. Salesmen and company managers work together to predict the demand based on different kinds of product characteristics. Then the production planners can enter the desired values in order to satisfy this demand while respecting the production constraints.
Ganacos can also be used to plan maintenance operations. For example, a home repair service company can manage the planning and assignment of technicians for the maintenance operations in the software.
Finance and Budget Monitoring
In the same way as for a standard spreadsheet, the company's finances as well as the monitoring of the budget and its realization can be managed in Ganacos. For instance, the financial amounts are monitored and modified depending on the type of project, the cost center or the month of the year.
