The Problem with EXCEL

Planning is critical for a business to succeed. Almost all controlling reporting and planning is businesses today is carried out on spreadsheets. Excel spreadsheets can be great but they have many fundamental issues:

  • Single User
  • Over 90% of spreadsheets contain fundamental errors
  • Only one version (no scenarios)
  • Complex to change
  • Many copies no single version of the truth
  • Single point of failure – often spreadsheets can only be maintained successfully by the creator
  • Perceived to be free but requires large amounts of resource to run

It is more important than ever to have good controlling systems. Finance and planning teams need to spend more time understanding generating plans rather than processing data and maintaining models.

CP-Suite – SIMPLE AND FAST

The CP Suite of applications has been designed around the business perspective. The software is designed to be implemented and maintained by the finance and planning teams. The fundamental principle from the founders is that it is that CP Suite is not a highly technical solution. The software does not require any specialist SQL / programming knowledge to implement, the models are built via dialogue boxes.

However, underlying the user interface is powerful SQL database with an in memory application server. Direct connection and drill down to per-systems is possible as well as completely devolved planning and reporting via a web browser.

Key advantages over other systems are implementation times are 3 times faster than competitor products. Changes can be made by the finance and planning teams, other systems often require significant IT time to make changes. Planning and reporting models are owned by the end business users, not by a technical team.
