- Financial Management
In today’s competitive business environment it is no longer acceptable for organizations to carry out once a year planning. They need to be more flexible, with survival based on speed and agility. Where budgets are tied into the organizations strategy and updated as and when the business environment changes.
However, many global organizations struggle to make this reality, facing challenges in collecting and consolidating budget data, mainly because traditional budgeting software assumes a static business environment or consists of non-integrated legacy systems. To have real value a budget must be a living plan that can be continually revised and updated in response to market changes. A budget that takes three months to prepare will almost certainly be outdated and irrelevant by the time it is rolled out, wasting countless man days in the process.
