Planning, Budgeting & Forecasting
Planning and forecasting help your organization to anticipate changing circumstances, and budgeting is not a negotiating game. We help organizations make their budget, planning and forecasting process smarter, faster and easier.
As a controller, you play a crucial part in setting up and implementing a good planning process. You can increasingly take on the role of a business partner in the planning process. You can do so by validating budgets and forecasts in terms of starting points or assumptions or by providing line management with relevant forecast information. Also, by thinking about actions to bring the operation in line with budget or strategy.
Our passion at Finext is challenging organizations to make their planning process smarter, faster and easier. Thanks to our practical experience at companies such as Ahold, ASML, Booking.com or Philips, we know what works and whatnot. There is no “one-size-fits-all,” no universal planning process that can be implemented anywhere, regardless of company size, diversity, the maturity of operational planning processes, organizational structure, culture, management style, and vision. So that’s not what we do.
Finext provides customized and simplicity-oriented solutions in terms of tooling and processes. We advise and support our customers with the selection and implementation of “best-of-breed” planning solutions. We do not shy away from challenges such as integration with, for example, ERP and CRM systems or the allocation of overhead costs to business units. We also ensure that the planning process leads to a productive dialogue and a supported story behind the (financial) figures so that organizations are ready for the future. Only then our mission is really successful.
