It can require so much time, work, and data to create strategic plans, sales forecasts, cost allocations, and budgets that many companies only update this information on an “as needed” basis. In many organizations, this effort is so painful that these plans function as post-mortem reports on what happened instead of up-to-date guides that provide visibility into the current performance of the organization.

Instead, imagine building your plans using a familiar interface and an application that offers a low-cost, flexible way for everyone who needs to participate in planning to do so, while providing you with the infrastructure and control to easily reuse the critical plans on an ongoing basis.
