"Our ownership structure means that our report design needs to be flexible. With the Corporate Planning software, we can tailor our reports to the needs of the various owners. The integrated interface to our financial accounting system enables us to respond rapidly to any variances or changes and to show this in new forecast calculations as an alternative to the original budget. Thus, for instance, we can easily keep an eye on variances in our cash flow that are of particular relevance. In forecasting, we appreciate most of all being able to edit data from within Excel. This access mode is ideal in that it makes it very easy for us to involve the project managers in the ongoing budgeting and forecasting process."
