Speed Up & Automate The Budget Cycle

A single source of truth, familiar online templates, and process management tools. View workflow status reports that track process completion and bottlenecks. Attach instructions to budgets so contributors have a consistent process to follow. See audit trails of each step performed by each individual to speed up the planning process and eliminate the risk of errors. Because managers can easily add their plans themselves, they'll take ownership of their numbers. You can even update your budgets and forecasts anytime and anywhere as Host Analytics also includes offline planning and analysis available in Excel.

Best Of Excel Without The Drawbacks

Anyone can use Host Analytics with its intuitive interface that’s easy to use and quick to learn. Keep using standard Excel formulas, the flexible grid, robust formatting, fast calculations, and convenient copy, paste, and drag capabilities. However, leave the broken links and numerous spreadsheets behind.

Use Your Existing Models

Host Analytics' unique AirliftXL capability lets you move formulas, formatting & models from Excel or legacy EPM applications to Host Analytics easily. That way you can save time by using what you've already created - now that's smart.

A Single Source Of Financial Data

Host Analytics' unified OLAP (multi-dimensional) database provides the ability to handle even the most complex and numerous reporting and planning scenarios and combinations with powerful 'slice & dice'. A single Chart Of Accounts and repository of information provides for one, accurate version of the numbers.

  • “We now have a comprehensive ability to plan and report using the same source data.”
