Planning, Budgeting & Forecasting
Budgeting and Forecasting are not a negotiating game and Planning is not a spread sheet. Our approach of short-cycle improvements leads to consensus-based results.
In order to be able to react to developments in rapidly changing markets and industries, it is necessary to have a dynamic and flexible planning process. Finext monitors what is really going on and translates this to the impact on future results. One company benefits from a planning and budgeting process, another organizations needs a (rolling) forecast process and for many organizations we see a combination of these processes. Our consultants use their craftsmanship to challenge organizations to simplify their planning process. We advise and support our clients with ‘best-of-breed’ software solutions of big software companies. Typical challenges like integration with ERP and CRM systems or allocation of overheads to business units based on allocation keys are challenges we embrace.
We enjoy setting up practical processes, supported by the best tool sets available, either for driver based planning or a dynamic rolling forecast. Our experiences at Ahold, Asics, ING, Perfetti van Melle and many other organizations are valuable resources when developing tailored solutions for our clients.
