Budgeting and Planning

Manage an Accurate, Outcome-Focused Budget Process

Streamline and unify your end-to-end budgeting process, seamlessly tie budget dollars to key organisational initiatives, and draw actionable insights that maximise performance outcomes.


Then, through Reporting and Transparency, add context to your results and share internally and externally for better collaboration.


Collaborate More Effectively

Collaborate across departments by sending and receiving budget proposals, tracking performance on strategic objectives, commenting on key reports, and sharing your outcomes with colleagues.


Glean the context you need for budget decisions and the information you need to manage performance. You can visualise trends and model the impact of proposed budget changes while you transform complex financial and performance data into actionable insights.


Through a simple and intuitive user interface, you can see your budget, receive commentary from your team, and get your plans approved. Easily seed the budget by importing last year's actuals, then adjust, add, or compare proposal line items in real time.
