Budgeting, Planning and Forecasting (BPF) – Cash Flow Management (CFM)

BPF is a process that determines the short and long term financial goals of an organization and represents the Annual Planning Cycle. It is a critical tool for informing and executing business strategy. CFM is a process assisting an organization to monitor and analyse its cash flows easily and quickly.

BPF and CFM solutions can solve problems applying to the following areas:
  • Planning Time Deficiencies.Web-based as well as self – serve reports\dashboards give management access to detailed and accurate picture of its business while centralized data input templates increase the frequency of forecasting with less staff effort. So, the transaction between actual and budget data is easier.
  • Analysis Incapability. Powerful “what-if” analysis and scenario planning with top-down and bottom-up capabilities and powerful “splashing” and “spreading” functionality.
  • Proper monitor/control of the Budgeting Procedure. Process tracking is kept and administrator knows the real-time status and stage of all planners involved in the process.
  • Agility and Transparency problems. These solutions can eliminate data segmentation and duplication. Also, multiple users can simultaneously monitor BPF and CF data from anywhere at any time.
  • Data Errors. These solutions can eliminate the tedious manual data consolidation. Input values are centrally stored, automatically rolled-up, instantly consolidated, and available in real-time. 
  • Smooth connection between Operations and Finance. Enterprise plans can be synchronized in order to reflect firm’s strategy and link operational effectiveness with financial performance.
