Advanced Collaborative Planning delivers flexible budgeting and forecasting for organisations across both the public and private sectors.
Trusted by more than 200 organisations, our web-based solution provides a robust and flexible framework to support all your planning needs.
In the current, uncertain economic climates, we understand that organisations in both the public and private sectors need to operate as efficiently as possible. Finance departments, in particular, are under pressure to maximise budgets and proactively work with budget holders across the organisation to manage spend.
Designed with accountants in mind, our web-based financial planning, budgeting and forecasting solution, Collaborative Planning, replaces traditional spreadsheet-based working. Automation of the entire budgeting cycle provides 'one version of the truth' to budget managers and finance professionals.
The inherent functionality of Collaborative Planning fosters best practice, empowering budget managers in the process and enabling the finance team to add value, rather than wasting time on data input and spreadsheet consolidation. Gain complete control over your spending, budgeting and forecasting with our solution.
Save between 30-60% of the time dedicated to planning, forecasting and performance monitoring across the budget cycle.

Real-time information from one system
With an up-to-date, single version of the truth finance departments have access to real-time information for timely, accurate decision-making – allowing them to perform a more strategic role by adjusting plans and actions as required. Anyone involved in the planning cycle can see the latest status of the plan and actual performance compared to targets, from one system.
Integration with all finance and operational applications
Collaborative Planning can re-use data from finance and operational applications, without the need for manual data collection and re-entry. Flexible import and export functions facilitate integration, minimising the risk of human error or data duplication and allowing your teams to work more efficiently.
Enhanced financial control with budget modelling
Budget Managers can easily create ‘working sets’ to represent multiple versions of their budgets, for effective planning and scenario assessments. ‘Working sets’ are multiple sub-sets of finance cube data created in isolation of the live model, to provide additional support for iterative / ‘what if’ analysis and continuous service planning. These ‘working sets’ provide a flexible way to define the boundaries automatically taking into account cell calculation and standing data tables.
