Forecast Financial Ratios
With Planning Maestro’s GL/ERP connectivity, you can analyze the current health of the company using financial ratios obtained from actual accounting data, and, more importantly, you can perform future-looking analysis by generating forecasted financial statements. You can even track certain ratios in different periods throughout your budget plan to see how they change over time.
Wow Your Investors
There are several reasons to use Planning Maestro’s powerful financial ratio capabilities. Your bank may require one or more ratios as part of certifying or re-certifying your eligibility for your line of credit, or as part of complying with loan covenants. Investors may look at certain ratios in order to determine whether or not to make an investment in the business. Some ratios, especially if tracked over time will give you an idea on the financial health of your organization and whether certain areas are improving or deteriorating.
