Phocas Budgeting and Forecasting is an excellent addition to Phocas’ financial offering. It will allow us to budget more thoroughly while saving time. I love that you are able to assign category/accounts to individuals for review, to ensure each department has a say in the budgeting process.

The potential to centralize WD40’s entire Europe budgeting program into a single source of truth. The advantages of combining sales data budgets onto the GL is a game-changer for the budgeting process. It removes complex spreadsheets and coupled with workflow and approval processes, ensures the business is only a click away from seeing the current status of budgets or forecasts.
