In the video to the right you can see a short introduction to the many possibilities and advantages you get with InfoSuite Budget.
Decentralised entry with less errors
One of the major advantages of InfoSuite Budget is that the budget entry is decentralised to the budget owner, and consolidation is completely automated. Numbers may be entered on top level and distributed automatically downwards, or the individual employee may enter a budget for their specific area, which is then automatically turned into a total budget for the entire organisation.
Budgeting is therefore made much easier and more clear – meaning that the focus is on the numbers, rather than the task of consolidation.
In InfoSuite Budget, you can include historical numbers, such as statistical data, and compare these to actual numbers accross time. During budget entry, budget suggestions can also be setup based on your historical data. Relations between dimensions and periods are used to ease the budget entry significantly.
Support features ease your budgeting
During budget entry, support features such as calculators, rest-budgeting and distribution keys are useful tools for easing the task. Locks and log features as well as summations help making the budget entry flexible whilst providing great freedom of detail and ensuring maintained overview.
Budget entry takes place in a draft defined and setup for your specific needs. It is possible to make use of authorisation control and text notes for budget entry, meaning that you can ensure that each individual employee only has access to specific parts of the budget as well as you can follow-up on the preconditions for the different budgets via the notes.
With InfoSuite Budget, budgeting is made easy whilst minimising sources of errors.
