What’s holding back your finance team?

Volatility, market uncertainty and risk: these are facts of life. No finance department can make these problems disappear. But, ideally, their main focus should be on addressing the issues – and not on manual spreadsheet-based processing. All that time spent collecting, consolidating and verifying data means less time solving real problems.

Circumstances and market conditions can shift quickly. Too often, finance is unable to deliver the plans, revised budgets, latest reports and insights needed to address those changes in a timely manner.

Other problems faced by businesses include the following:

  • Lack of in-house support
    As a consequence, teams are unable to take advantage of the full functionality of existing planning analytics tools.
  • Lack of external support
    Your existing partner doesn’t seem to understand how your business operates, let alone how you are trying to put financial analysis tools to work.

Reasons to Look at Planning Analytics

  • Create your very own, fully-customisable planning and analytics workspace.
  • Enables real people – i.e. finance and business users – to rapidly create reliable plans, budgets and forecasts.
  • Natural language search query capabilities ensures fast, powerful financial analysis.
  • Automatically creates compelling visualisations: While Finance stays in control of the planning process, this strong visual element makes it easier to collaborate with other departments.
  • Built to handle complex analysis: drill down for a granular view of product profitability and discover insights automatically, direct from the data.
  • Guided modelling: ask ‘what if’ questions – and get answers you can count on.
