SAP BusinessObjects Planning & Consolidation
Budgeting and forecasting is supposed to be about enabling better decisions – not managing spreadsheets
If you are one of the many organisations still using standalone spreadsheets to do your planning, budgeting, forecasting, and financial consolidations, you’re also likely to be one of the many organisations dealing with long, error-prone budget and close cycles.
The SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation application can help free up your time for more strategic, value-added activities that can grow your business. The software combines planning, budgeting, and forecasting capabilities with management and legal consolidation functionality in a single application, so you can shorten budget cycle time, close the books faster and ensure compliance with regulatory and financial standards.
Most importantly, the solution empowers Finance executives with a powerful toolset that allows them to respond to changing economic conditions and make better decisions about where to invest, allocate capital and deploy resources.
With SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation, everything you need to meet your bottom-up and top-down financial and operational planning requirements is available through a single application and user interface. You can benefit from:
Improved decision making:
The application supports any planning and budgeting need across the entire company, enabling a greater understanding of how internal and external forces can affect plans – so you can take corrective action early.
Reduced cycle time:
Finance and line-of-business managers can collaborate in a unified landscape, streamlining the process of creating and approving plans and budgets.
Minimised need for IT:

By offering an integrated set of planning and budgeting tools and providing an intuitive, easy-to-deploy, and easy-to-use solution, you can align plans across the organisation to drive optimum results.
