“Do you want to include more people within your organisation within the planning process while still delivering the plans quickly? Do you want to forecast accurate profit and loss accounts, and then accurately forecast an integrated balance sheet and cashflow too? Do you want an accurate idea of how much money you will have in the bank account at month end? Next month? Next year? Does your annual budget take so much time to produce that it is immediately out of date by the time it is finished?”

“We are passionate about helping organisations improve their plans, forecasts and budgets.”

This is what we do. In fact, this is all we do. We strive to help businesses, charities, Higher Education establishments or just about any organisation, create accurate plans, budgets and forecasts, easily and quickly. Because without a good view of the future, how does anyone make a good decision today?

We’ll go further; we believe that if you don’t know what tomorrow holds for your organisation, or next month or next year, then what are you doing making important decisions anyway.

We help improve plans, forecasts and budgets in a number of ways. Sometimes we offer limited advice so that an organisation can change the way they plan in a small way that produces big results. Sometimes we rip out the existing planning process and start over. Sometimes we recommend new planning, budgeting and forecasting software that enables a more robust, inclusive planning approach, while other times we simply tweak the way you do a few tasks each month to reach the same goal. All of that depends on what needs to change to help you get your desired results.

We can offer consultancy services, training, project management and process re-engineering for Anaplan, Performance Canvas and Cognos Planning Solutions. But that depends on what you need, and not on what we want to sell.

If you are trying to forecast, budget or plan within your organisation, then you will want your figures to be accurate, easy to compile and quick. Is that what you have today? Or are you one of the thousands of senior financial officers in the UK who have an incredibly difficult process that produces inaccurate plans, budgets and forecasts just after you really needed them?

What is the budgeting, forecasting and planning solution for you?

That all depends on what your problem is doesn’t it? Not only that, it also depends on what you want to achieve, your skill-set, how much IT support you have and, well lots of things really. Ask yourself:

  • Do you want to include more people within your organisation within the planning process while still delivering the plans quickly?

  • Do you want to forecast accurate profit and loss accounts, and then accurately forecast an integrated balance sheet and cashflow too?

  • Do you want an accurate idea of how much money you will have in the bank account at month end? Next month? Next year?

  • Does your annual budget take so much time to produce that it is immediately out of date by the time it is finished?

If you have answered yes to any of these, but are unable to do it right now, then we should talk because we may have a solution that helps you. Contact us today and we will arrange a discovery chat to see if we can help you improve your planning, forecasting and budgeting. Simply contact us and we will get right back to you.
