Familiar Excel Interface
MS Excel is used just as a user interface because we know that you and other finance personnel are used to working in excel. We give you something familiar to work with so that you won´t have to feel like you are starting from scratch with a new tool.
With EFP´s MS Excel UI, you won´t have to deal with the problem of your data ending up in these excel spreadsheets because all the data go back to the database for storage. No more frustrating excel spreadsheet errors in your financial planning process. Just something familiar in a truly new and revolutionary way of doing financial planning and analysis.
Workflow Fit for Modern Financial Planning & Analysis
EFP takes the word intuitive to a new level. EFP comes with a well thought through workflow designed to make working simpler and better for finance people.
For example, if you or any of your colleagues make changes to one of your 100-line items in the budget, the approver gets a notification that these changes were made with a highlight of the cells where changes were made. It will then ask your approver or budget responsible to verify that these changes are correct and valid before approval.
No more emailing back and forth explaining what you did, it is all now visibly seen complete with notations or commentaries on the side significantly shortening and improving the quality of the process.
One of the hidden costs of implementing an FP&A solution is the consulting that goes along with implementing it. EFP has tried to remove that problem by not only making installation quick and easy, it boasts of an implementation where consulting is totally optional.
When you make a commitment to implement EFP, EFP also commits to ensuring that you spend as little money as possible on implementing and making it work because once you install EFP, in just a few minutes you will have a functioning FP&A solution. No qualms.
EFP even offers free e-education packages to make learning the tool fast and easy.
User types designed to fit the way you work
Do you need specific people to access the FP&A solution a few times a year? Do you want them to see only certain information that concerns their line of work?
EFP now offers user types that can suit the way your organization and people work. EFP offers role-based security access making sure people see only what they are supposed to see.
There are now “lite” versions of the different user types as well so that the solution can better suit your organization’s way of working. Whether you need you or your people to access EFP daily or once a year, there are user types designed to suit your needs.
