Integrated Planning

Budgeting, Forecasting, Scenario Planning

We automatically work with your budgeting data inputted into your accounting system and provide a linear and average based forecast capability that will work with various periods of historical data to plot your forecast automatically.

This means your forecast is always available at any time and does not require you to input anything other than your budget should you wish to attain a comparative view of your forecast to budget performance. You can also export your forecast data directly to excel.


We have then integrated the budgeting and forecasting to our scenario planning model so that you can leverage your budget and forecast when you are planning your business.

You can easily perform scenario planning by increasing/decreasing the income statement-based categories such as sales, cost of sales, other income and expenses. The effected scenario will be plotted immediately to show you the effect across these categories.

Scenario Planning

When will I run out of cash?

This is a very common question asked to accountants across the globe.

Our cashflow prediction model provides you with a behavior based prediction on when your invoices will be paid, you will pay your suppliers and how your expenses will run for a three month period into the future.

The model learns and refreshes the data four times a day so you can see what your bank account balances will be three months in advance

The model is included as an analysis on our standard application accessible to all subscribers.

Predictive Cashflow

Sales Recommendations

What to flog to whom next

We have implemented a sales recommendation model that will recommend which items to sell to a customer next. The Frequent Item Set (FIM) likelihood learning model works with various historical data periods and recent purchase data and extrapolates a recommendation based on the historical purchase patterns of items by a specific customer.

A probability measure or likelihood is calculated and used to predict whether an item is more likely to be purchased based on historic vs recent customer purchases (sales). Each probability is validated against a measure of possibility of the item just being bought more frequently in which case the high likelihood is classified “not interesting”, otherwise ‘interesting”. All interesting associations are returned as recommendations or sales opportunities for a particular customer

The biggest benefit of the sales recommendation model is it is based on custom or item level, so you can see the recommended items for a customer or across multiple customers as well as the average quantity and sales value of such items across multiple customers which also supports your inventory procurement decisions.
