Eliminate spreadsheet frustration
Spreadsheets serve many functions, but as a budgeting tool, they’re prone to errors–from broken formulas to faulty macros. If it’s not Excel then it’s a second generation’ spreadsheet-based solution. So, you’re in the same predicament–with difficult to maintain, inflexible formulas that are the basis of your budget. Budgeting with these tools is a very manual and time-consuming process that is extremely complex, inflexible and difficult to maintain, particularly when you want to run different scenarios against an already fragile model.
View enhanced reports and graphics
Budget Maestro’s enhanced reporting capability provides greater visibility into your business through accurate and reliable graphical representations of your budget data. Drawing data directly from your G/L and sales order processing, you can create self-serve reports quickly, easily and accurately without extensive programming or IT involvement. Reports and customizable dashboards can then be delivered to anyone in the organization automatically, eliminating manual report bundling and distribution.
Get up and running in days, not months
Budget Maestro was designed for fast, easy implementation. With little or no assistance from IT, you’ll be up and running in days. The system guides you through loading the essential data that describes your business–all based on real language prompts, wizards, preformatted templates and menus. No programming or formulas are necessary. Once the business model is set up, you can automatically upload data from your G/L or ERP system and let budget contributors enter information about their areas of responsibility.
