Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting

Streamline and enhance financial planning and analysis

Spend less effort on transactional work and more time on planning, budgeting, forecasting, and analysis to better support the business. With automated processes such as data aggregation and embedded calculations and reporting, more time is available to model and simulate what-if scenarios to quickly identify and capitalize on growth opportunities and reduce risks. As a result, you can boost planning accuracy and reduce cycle time.
