M3 Midstream, an independent midstream energy company, relied on archaic spreadsheets to manage their budgeting and forecasting processes. This approach was a manual process which was too inefficient and error prone. The company’s business model and revenue stream depended on them providing a turn-key natural gas production facility, so being able to accurately forecast the resulting demand for cash over an 18-24 month pre-production cycle was paramount to the company’s success. With detailed cash forecasting capabilities, Budget Maestro from Centage Corporation was the only solution to meet M3’s needs. By leveraging user defined drivers to create and revise the budget and forecasts automatically as adjustments were made, the team at M3 was able to develop their annual budget 50% times faster than using spreadsheets.
