Budget Maestro can do what Excel cannot; it enables finance professionals to create a budget model using pre-programmed, 100% accurate, budget logic that automates the debit and credit calculations allowing them focus on the numbers and the results from the model. As a result, it frees finance teams to interact with the budget contributors and to run infinite scenarios to help them make decisions- without worrying about the underlying model.

In just 30 minutes attendees will learn how these key reasons can guide them to a better budgeting, planning, and forecasting model to make more accurate and impactful decisions including how to:

  • Seamlessly connect a general ledger to import a chart of accounts and trial balance;
  • Leverage an easy quick start wizard to build a complete budget model in as little as five days;
  • Maintain consistency and accuracy from multiple budget contributors working on the same model;
  • Compare budget to actuals with transaction level drill through granularity;
  • Automatically generate projected GAAP compliant Balance Sheet and Cash Flow;
  • Use a model to create unlimited what-if scenarios.
