Has your budget spreadsheet model spiralled out of control?

As your organisation grows and changes, the once manageable spreadsheet budgeting and reporting model soon becomes unwieldy, inefficient and a business liability.  Finding and compiling the required data consumes huge amounts of man hours and resources, which means it’s not uncommon for yearly budgets to take many months to complete, with the risk of error being very high.

88 Spreadsheet

The best-run companies have streamlined the budgeting and forecasting process so it’s more collaborative, agile and flexible, enabling Finance to effectively manage what should be a critical component of their business systems.  The reality is that most companies fail to achieve this outcome because they continue to rely on spreadsheets and are stuck in Excel hell, even though 88% of spreadsheets contain errors (Wall Street Journal April 20th, 2013).

Common spreadsheet pain points

Excel spreadsheets often cause more problems than they solve in today’s business environment.  Spreadsheets are difficult to manage and therefore cannot ensure data accuracy.  Anyone can input a figure and send their amended version to whomever they like.  This makes it impossible to control the multiple versions doing the rounds at any given time, let alone create accurate forecasts or perform meaningful scenario analysis.
