Using the right software to create the perfect financial plan

Balance sheet and cashflow planning, budet planning and forecasting: For many businesses, the planning process is a time-consuming process, associated with manually inputting a large amount of data into different, non-standardized documents. It should hardly be surprising that errors creep in during the process. Frequently, the process relies on MS Excel, even though it has only limited suitability as a tool for planning and controlling. The result? Many enterprises restrict themselves to planning only for their profit or loss. Balance sheet and cash flow planning or budget planning and forecastings are either ignored entirely or only partially considered. However, planning experts have long been aware that an integrated planning model is an absolute prerequisite for effectively and successfully managing a business.
