Simplify Budget Preparation 

from inside Excel

Spend less time prepapring your budgets and more time tracking and analyzing performance

How do you know if your budgeting process is getting out of hand?

Do you have trouble preparing and compiling budgets across different business units? Without centrally defined methods and rules, budget planning can turn into a long, drawn-out process, and the distribution, tracking, and collecting of workbooks for budgeting can eat up valuable time. Budgeting can be a challenging process, fraught with issues including:

  • Decentralized user-entered data that slows down the overall budget assembly
  • Re-keyed data that risks introducing errors
  • Lack of distribution and change tracking
  • Multiple budget versions that spiral out of control
  • Too many time-consuming, manual processes

100% of surveyed education customers were able to automate at least 10 reorts.

84% surveyed organizations saved 50-100 hours or more in one year.

74% surveyed organizations have been able to significantly streamline data extraction from their ERP and/or other relational databases.
