Streamlining Decision Making


Tellusant® is dedicated to building scientifically based management strategy software for executives in consumer goods and other industries. Our starting point is to streamline the corporate strategic planning process.

Our work is informed by decades of experience. We build on our deep knowledge of how decisions are made during annual planning cycles, and how to create the supporting materials that are the foundation for decisions.

This knowledge is codified in TelluPlan℠ and TelluBase℠, our interlinked offerings.

Today, this is a highly manual process. Tomorrow, Tellusant will make it streamlined and cost effective based on our scalable decision platform.

Founded in 2020, we represent the next generation of big ideas.

What is TelluPlan?


Key aspects of the strategic planning process that rely on untrained analyst support are instead available in real time and always accurate. Telluplan takes away the risks of different teams relying on different, inconsistent, and unreliable data and methods to inform decisions.


Critical yet redundant tasks in strategic planning are completed immediately. Testing what is happening, from relevant market trends to adjusting scenarios for future years, is done in the platform rather than through manual Excel files that take significant time to update.

Consistent, efficient process

Strategic planning workflows are organized and can be compared with best practices to ensure the process is complete. The platform’s recommendations for best practices build from the founders >40 years of experience helping companies in the strategic planning process.

Executive attention

With Telluplan, executives can stop worrying about whether the information they see to inform their decisions is accurate, and instead focus on how to use the information to make the best decisions.
