  • Understand your requirements
  • Configure the software to suit your business process needs

Bold Shore can help your Organisation by leveraging technology to overcome typical Budgeting and Forecasting (B&F) pitfalls and focus on value add activities through:

  • Automatic consolidation of Financial data

  • Integrated security profile management

  • Centralised control and auditability

  • Higher frequency planning cycles (rolling monthly forecasts)

  • Automatic driver based calculations (allocations and costs drivers)
