Rolling Forecasts

Build plans that evolve with your business

Are you relying on static and out-of-date annual budgets?

It doesn't take long for Annual plans to become static after their creation - since they're unable to reflect market fluctuations. As changes happen, plans quickly become outdated, and making decisions from inaccurate information puts your business at risk.

Gain agility with accurate Rolling Forecasts

Rolling Forecasts keep your business updated with the latest information while maintaining alignment with your strategic goals. Continuously rolling your planning periods while adjusting key drivers will ensure forecasts are accurate and your business stays agile. Allow your team insight into the impacts of decisions over the next year, not just the current one.

When new monthly data arrives, FP&A teams need to perform a budget to actuals variance analysis and re-forecast future periods. Doing this manually through Excel can be an extremely cumbersome task, and forecasts become prone to errors.
