Easy-to-use what-if scenario capabilities allow you to change assumptions and immediately see the impact on your revenue, expenses, and cash flow. For example:
- If we need to add four more people to meet milestones, can we stay on-budget for this project?
- If we receive 10% of our receivables later than planned, how will it affect cash flow?
- If one of our trucks breaks down will we be able to replace it and what would the impact be on other projects and cash flow?
