  • Easy import of data from your existing systems, including accounting systems, ERP, HR, FAS and CRM.
  • Productive use by both financial and line managers, using an intuitive interface with wizards, menus and drop-down guides.
  • Quick and accurate allocations – based on hours worked, billable hours, square feet, production hours, headcount, total expenses, total revenue or any other driver value with no formulas to manage or debug.
  • Synchronized Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statements derived from your P&L Budget.
  • Unified budgeting, forecasting and reporting of all financial & non-financial elements, including revenue, expenses, personnel, capital assets, loans and lines of credit
  • Forecasting
    Our financial forecasting solutions make the forecasting process productive and accurate, but also allow for quick adjustments as conditions dictate. This versatile forecasting software:

  • Allows budget managers to update their line items and generate accurate reports. Allows you to quickly and easily compare Income Statements, Balance Sheets and Cash Flow Statements for multiple periods and versions.
  • Centralises data in a single database, not across numerous spreadsheets. Consolidates data automatically, providing real-time forecasts from summary to detail level.
  • Facilitates comparison of multiple forecasts (e.g. Forecast with Flat Sales and Stable Healthcare Costs, vs. Forecast with 10% Sales Growth and 5% Healthcare Increase).
  • Generates variance reports of budget, actual, and re-forecasted numbers. Provides a long-term view, with the ability to create rolling forecasts beyond 12 periods. Reflects changes in assumptions about key business drivers or market conditions instantly, across the entire model.
  • Requires no labor-intensive formulas, macros or links.
