If updating your budget or forecast with actuals includes data gathering, file imports, formulas, and other manual, time-consuming tasks, you probably find yourself thinking, “there’s got to be an easier way to do this.”
You’re not alone. According to a recent survey, only 17% of a finance team’s time is dedicated to strategic activities—that’s about 7 hours a week. As you can probably guess (and sympathize with), the remainder of the time is spent on tedious and manual processes. The reason? Data integration—or, the lack thereof. The same survey noted that most CFOs say the lack of proper integrations with accounting or other systems prevents their team from accessing the information they need to successfully model, forecast, and analyze business performance.
But what if you could automate budget and forecast processes to update automatically? What if you had more time to analyze the data instead of gathering it? With Workday Adaptive Planning, you can.
Automate budget and forecast actuals with Adaptive Planning
By integrating Adaptive Planning with your source systems, you’ll reduce your risk, reduce errors, and save time spent on manual and disjointed processes. Automated data flows allow you to spend more time understanding and analyzing data—not shuffling it from place to place.
Critical Insights, Faster
Data flows automatically from any system (or systems) your business depends on—ERP, CRM, HCM, and more. Coming directly from the source, you can be sure your plans, models, forecasts, dashboards, and reports are up-to-date and accurate.
No Code Required
With Adaptive Planning, there’s no need for code. The easy-to-use platform allows you to use the same formulas and math you’re used to. Have confidence in your numbers by testing and visualizing data in a staging area before loading into live models.
Extend the Power of ERP
Adaptive Planning works seamlessly with all of the leading on-premise and cloud-based applications like NetSuite. Instantly drill-down to a transactional record to see exactly where the data came from, all in one system.
Built for Financial Planning
More than just another BI tool, Adaptive Planning was built for planning. An easy ETL process allows you to integrate data with your models, forecasts, and dashboards so you can focus on improving performance.
