Empowering business users with amazing technology

Bedford Consulting is the largest and longest-running sole Anaplan reseller and 2020 Anaplan Partner of the year for EMEA, specialising in project implementation, software sales and connected planning.


We believe passionately that the software we use should empower organisations to plan in a truly connected way, reducing time spent on data collation and preparation and enabling faster, connected decisions across the organisation.


Founded in 2008, we have been at the forefront of connected planning technology since our inception, firstly working with the IBM Cognos toolsets and moving to work with Anaplan in 2011. As one of the first Anaplan partners in the UK, we have been involved in implementations across all areas of the business in some of the world's largest companies. 


We are engaged by clients throughout the entire project lifecycle and are heavily involved both in pre-sales and project delivery stages. We regularly conduct personalised Anaplan demos including bespoke proof of concept model builds. We spend our days building Anaplan models and we love to share that experience with our clients.
