Advectas Easyplan is a budget and planning solution for customers who use Microsoft’s platform for Business Intelligence.
Many companies have built up their BI solution in a Microsoft environment and are struggling with how to manage their budgeting- and planning processes. Many have designed their own Excel solutions, while others have purchased expensive and complicated tools that are difficult to use. Those who have invested in Excel are often caught in a so-called “Excel hell”, while those who bought more advanced products from major software vendors are often stuck with complex and inflexible solutions.
