    Naturally, I hear a lot about the more common use cases for Vena around different parts of the business; FP&A, Accounting, HR, Sales, and many more.

    I'm always curious to hear about the out of the box use cases that people find a use for through Vena.

    What's the niche process or excel frankenstein brain child that you're running through Vena that you're willing to share?

    Since our finance team are in Vena, I think we might be the poster child for Frankenstein usage. Some key examples:
    • Annual Compensation Review Process (integrates well with the Workforce Planning build)
    • Forecasting Accounts Payables and Accounts Receivable by invoice
    • Bonus calculation and notification
    • Commission calculation and notification (not too Frankenstein anymore since we now have a package for this!)
    For us, it's important to be comfortable with things not working out. We are all about creativity and the "better, better, never best" mentality. It's resulted in some really cool experiments!

    Excited to hear how other companies are utilizing Vena in some unique ways!

    Similar to what Olivia mentioned we have built out a few different reports integrated with the workforce planning module specifically related to payroll accruals, bonus calculations and compensation incentives. We've also built out some extensive reports specifically related to reporting we have to submit to the NFL. Very nuanced, but it's been incredibly helpful to have it all in one place and to provide efficiency and additional check figures along the way.
