Major Budgeting and Forecasting Difficulties

Multiple, Unconnected Data Sources

 It might take a lot of time to integrate data from several sources, such as ERP, CRM, and HRIS systems, which makes it harder to collaborate and analyse data.

Excel manual procedures

The adaptability and dependability of budgeting and forecasting are constrained by the need on human data entry in offline Excel spreadsheets, which can result in mistakes, version control problems, and inefficiencies.

Workflows, audit trails, and data validation procedures are absent.

Collaboration can be delayed, and incorrect budgets and predictions can arise from insufficient mechanisms for monitoring progress, ensuring data integrity, and keeping accurate audit trails.
