Finance teams often spend an inordinate amount of time programming their entire budget model in Excel spreadsheets only to be less than confident in its accuracy. Facing complex business scenarios, the budget also becomes difficult to modify in Excel when the business rules and structure change, or when the management team requires the department to run multiple scenarios.

Budget Maestro creates the model using pre-programmed, 100% accurate, budget logic, while finance teams focus on the numbers and the results from the model. It frees them to interact with the budget contributors and to run infinite scenarios to help make decisions – without worrying about the underlying model.

In just 30 minutes attendees will learn how to:

  • Build a complete budget model in as little as 5 days – including a first pass at the budget;
  • Integrate with the budget with the GL – to ease budget vs. actual analysis – with drill through to transaction level data for better understanding;
  • Automatically generate a GAAP compliant Balance Sheet and Cash Flow projections from the budget or forecast;
  • Use a budget model to create unlimited what-if scenarios.
