FORECASTING. BUDGETING. PLANS.
Doesn’t every business need to be looking ahead? Best expectations. What if?
And every business needs a weekly cash forecast for at least the next three months to spot and manage any dips.
Camwells has helped start-up, private, AIM and FTSE250 businesses with Excel models or more sophisticated forecasting systems such as SAP BPC. This has been with various types of business such as hi-tech materials, IT, energy, services and traditional house-building.
With smaller businesses it has been to build Excel models and use them to compile forecasts. With larger businesses it has been to select and build forecasting and reporting systems the FP&A team will use alongside Excel.
Excel is a marvellous tool in which to build forecasting models. But as a business becomes larger and more complex, with multiple people involved, Excel can be over-stretched. It's then worth looking at more appropriate software. Here's an article covering Excel's pros and cons.
These are typical client testimonials:
