What it can do for your business

Plan Request allows you to create budgetary requests that can be ranked, prioritized and justified. With limited resources, it is important to focus on mandatory items, items of extraordinary need and items of highest priority. Each request can be easily associated with a department, request driver, request type and any other attribute you define. Plan for the financial impact of each request prior to approving it as an addition to your operating budget for the current and future years.

Rank and prioritize projects

At a departmental or corporate level. Projects can also be viewed in terms of how well each aligns with corporate priorities.

Update Operating Budget

Manage your overall budget by only adding approved requests to the budget worksheet.

Shift projects

Forward or backwards when projects are not approved this year and you will want to request it again in a future year.
