“We were sailing through our first quarter when this crisis hit. Within three weeks our business had completely changed. We were working from home, customer orders were postponed or cancelled, and we were forced to implement some extreme cost controls.
One positive in all this is that our job doesn’t stop; in fact, there’s more work. I don’t think there’s anything that hasn’t changed: reports, metrics, and of course our forecasts.
Three months into the year and our budgets were already irrelevant. We had to find time to completely start over.
Considering we have dozens of department heads within each of our many units/divisions, budget season had always been somewhat of a dreadful process to begin with. But I can’t tell you how happy I am that we were one of the early adopters of your budget solution last year.
Now instead of sending out Excel spreadsheets to everyone, and then devoting weeks of time to get them back, fix any errors and consolidate them, we can literally cover all that groundwork in just a few hours.
