Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) Solution

The Solution

MCA Connect’s FP&A solution makes the budgeting and forecasting process so simplified that it can be easily repeated, giving companies the opportunity to create forecasts more frequently and ultimately providing greater accuracy. Built in one consolidated data warehouse, our FP&A solution aligns both operational and financial forecasting and offers easy reporting and dashboards through Power BI.

Gain the ability to build your own forecasts, budgets and reports at both the operational and financial level – without ever needing to involve your IT department. Entries can have any level of detail and can either roll forward or roll back from your goal. Use one of our dynamic pre-built models to get up and running faster – but can still easily change as your business changes. Powerful spreading options for input simplifies the data collection process, reducing your budget cycles by weeks or even months.

Advantages of MCA Connect’s FP&A Solution

Simplified & Automated Planning Process

The planning process becomes much simpler, more automated and repeatable, which gives companies an opportunity to create forecasts more frequently, providing greater accuracy.

Nearly Real-Time Insights

Business insights are more reliable because the data is validated and pulled live “in real time” from the source line of business systems (Dynamics 365, ERP, CRM and even other databases and spreadsheets).

Unified Forecasts

Operational and financial forecasts are inter-related, allowing departments to respond to each other’s forecasts. For example, if the sales forecast changes, the demand and production plans can get adjusted, which can trigger HR to adjust salaries or headcount forecasts.

Reduced Budget Cycles by Weeks or Months

MCA Connect’s FP&A solution delivers powerful spreading options for input and simplifies the data collection process, which can reduce budget cycles by weeks, or even months.
