Excel is not enough for functional corporate planning

Planning, budgeting, forecasting are the key processes of every company

They set strategic goals, what steps the company wants to achieve them in what timeframe, at what cost.

It takes into account how certain events and scenarios will affect the direction of the firm. Thus, any mistake can cost the company at least considerable financial resources.

However, regular deliverables often take months to complete, and planning is lengthy, inefficient, and has a high error rate. Excel spreadsheets cannot compete with modern data processing tools today.

Our clients’ experiences across industries – from banking to pharmaceuticals – prove it.

We design all of our solutions to be easy to manage, easy to edit, and with company growth in mind. They make work faster and more efficient and eliminate errors that come from manual work in Excel.
