Whether you call it forecasting or budgeting, it is the tool for you!
Nice compliment: A company invested $20,000+ in modeling with another product then switched to pro forma for their $100,000,000 acquisition, thanking us for the product and wishing they had found it earlier. On the other end of the spectrum, a very nice customer used pro forma for modeling a new motorcycle business for their bank. Forecasting/budgeting, whatever you are trying to do, you can do it with pro forma.

Users who have to spend time building pro forma's, whether for simple budgeting or sophisticated financial modeling of acquisitions, know how time consuming and monotonous the task can be, and how frustrating it is when you have to make an adjustment or run an alternative scenario. Spreadware has designed a comprehensive tool to save you a great deal of time and frustration: pro forma is completely automated, so we do the arduous work for you. After the user sets the parameters, the pro forma financial statements (complete with detailed analyses!) are quickly generated. Print the pro formas and review the results. Change variables to review 'what if?', using powerful 'what if?' menu commands. Consolidate multiple models into a detailed consolidated summary model. Very flexible! You decide how simple or complex you want your model!
Creating pro forma financial statements is often required in business, but is a necessity when trying to efficiently manage and maneuver a business to maximum profitability, especially in challenging business and economic environments. Some call it budgeting. Some call it forecasting. Some call it strategic planning. For some it is acquisition/merger/funding/startup/credit analysis. Whatever the name, the task can be extremely time consuming and daunting, unless you are using Spreadware's pro forma. You don't think it's an accident that successful organizations such as Nestle, Motorola, Michelin Tire, Nynex, Microsoft, Chevron, Gund and many other large and small service, manufacturing and not-for-profit organizations have purchased pro forma, do you? Olin's Realworld MBA program. USF's Executive MBA program. It's all around. Janette, Woody, Michael and others like yourself have made their lives much easier by letting pro forma do much of the work. (Financial institutions also use the software, to run their own models on your business.)
This is an excellent tool for business management, budgeting, business planning, analyzing acquisition feasibility, creating loan/investment proposals and more! A must tool for successful planning. Powerful, yet easy to use and understand! You do not have to be a financial expert or Excel whiz to use the program, it is very easy to use and understand. (If you are an expert or a whiz, we've put in the power you expect!) Our goal is to make software that will do the work, so you can do the thinking.
