Who is it for?

Too many organisations still base their operational planning on little more than executive hunches, with departmental managers entering numbers they hope will achieve their goals manually into outdated tools, such as spreadsheets.

In contrast, SAP BPC – containing ultra-fast-to-deploy, fully customisable budgeting and planning templates – takes operational planning to the next level by automating the process.
