Flexible & agile financial forecasting made simple

The finance team needs to think ahead and see around corners. Centage’s FP&A software lets you regularly forecast and evaluate actuals to gain insight into your financial plan. Improve budgeting accuracy, set realistic goals, detect and correct problems early, and future-proof your business with flexible forecasting.

Get out of maintenance mode

Excel works well for FP&A – until it doesn’t. When the next formula breaks, you’re spending time fixing mistakes instead of strategically planning.

Cash flow and workforce forecasting

Centage operates as an extension of your general ledger, automatically generating accurate, forward-looking balance sheet and cash flow information synchronized with actuals and your budget. See the effect of cash flow from any area of your operation. Make a change to an assumption and automatically see the impact throughout all your financials.

Generate accurate, agile rolling forecasts

Run forecasts throughout the year using Centage’s built-in capability and connected financial statements. Streamline rolling forecasts and create variance reports based on up-to-date information. Generate quarterly (or monthly) reforecasts on the fly, as needed. Get the updated insight needed to course correct in response to changing business conditions, quickly and easily.

"With Centage we’ve moved away from doing yearly budgets, and work off the quarterly reforecasts. We are able to spend less time talking about the numbers in the budget and spend more time on how we’re going to get there."

“I can update our cash flow, income statement, and forecast out five years really easily. I can do a five-year model and see how much cash we’ll have, which is pretty critical to our existence. And because of the flexibility of Centage, I can change forecasts and get new information faster and without extra headaches.”

Joan Edelman

After transitioning from Excel-based forecasts to Centage, this housing nonprofit is now able to generate complex forecasts with just a few clicks.

“For each of six operating companies on separate SAGE general ledgers, we need to provide an annual budget and series of quarterly forecast revisions including projecting cash flow requirements over the course of the year. We were spending far too much time chasing down broken links and double-checking formulas for errors.”

Gina Cole

Controller, M3 Midstream Momentum
