Plan around your most important resource: Your people

Your people are your most valuable resource, and the personnel budget is one of the most important parts of your financial plan. It can also be the most complicated if you have a large workforce, employees who split time between different locations/departments, or a workforce split between full-time, part-time, and seasonal employees. Centage makes budgeting and forecasting at the individual employee level not only possible, but painless.

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.

Streamlined workforce budgeting

Quickly build a detailed workforce plan and evaluate your company’s ability to meet its goals. Understand how each department and employee contributes to your bottom line. Built-in logic tracks overtime, premium time, and shift differentials according to your work and pay cycles.

Forecast salary increases on the fly

Centage enables fine-grained personnel planning, down to individual health insurance plans. Budget merit increases based on different geo locations and times of year, or see the impact of an annual salary increase in seconds without fear of formula errors.

"There are so many different variables to account for when it comes to our personnel planning, especially with health insurance… Depending on the employee, whether they are married, single, married with children and so on — all those tables are built in Centage so I can accurately select which option the employee has and it calculates the associated cost. It’s great because it makes our budgeting much easier and more accurate."
