When: March 16-19, 2015
Where: Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA
What: Many financial leaders struggle with financial data integration concerns and the need to automate the manual process of extracting actual data from Microsoft Dynamics and then transforming and loading balances into a budgeting software solution. Likewise, many need to extract a completed budget from the budgeting solution and load it back into a Dynamics budget version in an automated way.

Budget Maestro's ETL solution, Link Maestro for Microsoft Dynamics offers bidirectional integration, allowing users to seamlessly load budget and forecast versions from Budget Maestro back into Dynamics budgets, preserving existing investment in Dynamics driven chart of accounts, reporting, dashboards, and analytics. Budget Maestro serves as an extension of a Microsoft Dynamics general ledger, synchronizing actual data into the budget, and the budget back into the general ledger. All GAAP, IFRS, and ad-hoc financial statements are integrated so changes to assumptions automatically flow through to the Balance Sheet and Cash Flow.

With built in financial intelligence and business rules, Budget Maestro provides easy to use dropdown boxes with the ability to select pre-defined spreads, and schedules on the fly. By automating the process, Budget Maestro saves customers valuable time and efficiently enables variance reporting, analytics, and what-if scenario planning.

"Budget Maestro is the most distinctive and innovative technology for budgeting and forecasting in the market," said Barry Clapp, President & CEO of Centage. "Recent new investment in the company is allowing us to reach the market to demonstrate this advancement in budgeting solutions. 2015 will see us making a series of announcements of new functions and tools which will enhance the field of budgeting for small and medium sized businesses. We'll be kicking that off at the Convergence Conference."
