Budgeting & Forecasting

Effective budgeting and financial planning software for private and public companies in all sectors.

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

· Time-consuming and manual work

When businesses have several financial systems, it is a challenge to consolidate the budget. There may be different versions of the same spreadsheet. Consolidation becomes a nightmare, and the risk of failure leads increased stress levels.

· The budget works poorly as a tool for business management

You want a flexible forecasting process, but after a month the budget no longer reflects reality. Analysis becomes meaningless, and it is difficult to see important trends or issues that need your attention.

· Little improvement from year to year

Time-consuming and manual work not only increases the risk of errors; it also makes it harder to see opportunities for improvement. When managers do not feel they own their budget, they rarely participate in the process. They become disengaged, which in turn, inhibits improvement and progress.

Then it's time to try modern planning and budgeting software.

 

Effectplan transforms your budgeting & forecasting processes

Preparing, maintaining and compiling budgets often requires a great deal of time and manual work. Forecasts may be out of date before they are completed, and new plans are needed as the business changes.

We have been running Effectplan for a few years now, and the best thing about it is it's so simple, yet flexible. The problem in the past was that we had several different versions of the budgets, but no one knew which one was the original.
