News update on financial planning for business


April 2014
Hi all,

Happy Easter! It seems amazing that a third of the year has almost gone already. I hope the plans you made at the start of the year are coming to fruition.

At Innovar we are in a celebratory mood as we reach our 6th anniversary. Over the past 6 years we have evolved and grown and extended the range of products we offer. We have implemented many planning solutions across numerous industries and sectors. We are proud to call ourselves planning experts and over the years we have a number of  testimonials gained from our customers which support this. We look forward to working with our customers (old and new)  in the future.

In this issue we focus on some of the events that have occurred in March 2014 that will impact our industry: The new release of Anaplan and the Annual Budget from the Government. Both will affect budgeting, planning and forecasts in different ways. The new release of Anaplan aims to enhance the user experience, so find out what improvements have been made in our article below. The Budget will probably require tweeks and modifications to your budgeting and forecasting system, whether these will be easily achieved will depend on the solution you have in place. Read more in our article below. We also take a look at collaboration and how it should work effectively in your business.

We hope you find this useful and would welcome any feedback you may have. If you enjoyed reading this then please feel free to share this with your colleagues
