Live Plan helped me with having a template available to build my business plan upon.
I thought writing a business plan would be something I would have to outsource and get help with.
Live Plan simplifies business planning, budgeting, forecasting, and performance tracking for small businesses and startups.
Set business goals, compare performance to industry benchmarks, and see all your key numbers in an easy-to-use dashboard so you know exactly what's going on in your business. Pros: Cloud based, easy step by step process for planning for novices.
I can also share my plan with potential investors and feel confident that it is both organized and professional.
Cons: I would like if the software would integrate with my accounting software, that way I can see in realtime how my cash flow is cooresponding with my company goals.
Built in benchmarks are great for planning and analysis.
The Pitch is excellent for summarizing the focus of any business.
Overall: Live Plan is helping my business grow because I am able to stay organized with goals and milestones as we are meeting them.
I can see firsthand what is allowing my company to grow and where we need to make changes to be successful.
