Recognized for Delivering Value Through Greater Ease of Use and Quick Implementation 

Framingham, MA – February 2, 2023 – Centage Corporation ( the leading provider of modern FP&A software solutions for finance teams, announced Planning Maestro has been named a “Facilitator” in this year’s CPM Technology Value Matrix for delivering value through greater ease of use and quick implementation. Nucleus predicts that Centage will continue to be an attractive option for small and midsize businesses seeking to upgrade from Excel.

Centage’s Planning Maestro is a cloud platform for budgeting, planning, forecasting and analytics. It delivers sophisticated financial intelligence that can be implemented quickly and scale with the needs of today’s dynamic businesses. The platform – available in three editions – allows finance teams to integrate data from multiple sources, easily build and manipulate driver-based financial models, predict balance sheet and cash flow performance with accurate and automated forecasts, as well as run what-if scenarios to test the impacts of strategic decisions. 

The annual report provides an assessment of the market based on how vendors deliver value to customers through the usability and functionality of their solutions. The research is intended to deliver a relevant snapshot of the CPM technology market, rather than serve as an empirical ranking of the vendors. 

“Centage has responded to shifts in CPM as customers demand budgeting and forecasting software that is easy to use and implement. Recent enhancements to their solution’s workflow and forecasting capabilities offer improved efficiencies and an easier, faster way to forecast and test the impact of various scenarios, both significant upgrades given the current business environment, especially for those SMBs seeking to upgrade from Excel,” said Isaac Gould, research manager, Nucleus Research.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Nucleus Research in the latest CPM Technology Value Matrix,” said John Murdock, president & CEO, Centage. “Today’s finance teams need sophisticated FP&A solutions to help them manage the financial health of their organizations.
