“Now we have better control over the data that we’re using to create a forecast and the ability to put in notes so we know why we chose a certain number. We’ve increased accuracy and saved time with BudgetPak.”

- Dan Brent, CPA, Chief Financial Officer at William James College

Detailed Forecasting

For organizations with rapid growth, numerous changes in headcount, or who need very specific monthly numbers for details below the account level.

  • Fully capture all potential expenses
  • Detailed data (individual employees, assets, or line item detail) can be adjusted on a monthly basis and automatically rolled up to the account level
  • Every forecast version can include:
    • employees
    • drivers of calculated values
    • and a description to explain the purpose of the forecast

“With BudgetPak we can forecast every month using detailed revenues, including the number of attendees that we have and the average ticket price. Plus we are always looking at the trailing 12 months, because of seasonal influences like summertime, holidays, and when school starts.”

- Sally Berven, CFO, Perot Museum of Nature and Science
