Budgeting and Planning made better for finance
There is an easier, more accurate and efficient way
to budget and plan.
Do you dread the annual budgeting cycle? Spend countless unproductive hours fixing up and consolidating error prone spreadsheets? Yet after months of hard work, you know that once the budget is complete, it is essentially outdated and cannot truly be relied upon.
Many finance teams get to a point of frustration and wonder – surely there is a better way to do this!
This is where the difference is. Successful organisations understand the limits of using Excel, and when it is time to leverage Budgeting and Planning solutions to make planning, reporting and analysis a lot easier and more accurate.
With the right solution, you can free up and empower your finance team to focus more on the value-add activities to partner with the business, and at the same time allow the wider business to be more accountable to track against their plans.
With the right Budgeting and Planning solution you can:
- Overcome limitations of Excel spreadsheets
- Cut your budgeting cycle time by at least 50%
- Have the ability to actually do rolling forecasts and higher frequency planning
- Automatically consolidate budget figures across multiple contributors in real time
- Manage collaboration with workflow
- Budget and plan either top down or bottom up
- Centralise control of versions with a full audit trail
- Model up driver-based calculation
Budgeting and Planning is an essential part of any business – you can’t get away from it. When done poorly, the plan loses meaning and can be a hindrance to finance and the wider business.
But when done well, it enables finance and the entire business to truly measure, track and deliver performance.
