Spend less time preparing 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 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
