Traditional tools are no longer fit-for-purpose

Using Excel spreadsheets and clunky sotftware for business planning often results in:

  • Time-consuming consolidation of multiple spreadsheets

  • Highly error-prone forecasts 

  • Inability to adopt rolling forecasts or change financial models

  • Heavy reliance on team to manage the budgeting process

  • No way to dynamically view forecast comparisons

  • Loss of integrity in overall planning process

What if you could develop more robust forecasts, budgets and scenarios in less time?

 “From a Centre Manager perspective, the feedback I’m getting is that they’re enjoying the different scenarios. We have four different versions of forecast budgets – pre-COVID, conservative (post-COVID), stretch and optimistic. They’re finding that useful and uptake of the software has been really good.”
