Vanguard Predictive Planning™ for Finance

Still using spreadsheets?  Stop! Using spreadsheets is a manually intensive, error-prone and archaic way of supporting FP&A. Spreadsheets lock-up data in silos and create more issues. This outdated approach results in poor performance for FP&A teams. Top performers are moving to automated, advanced analytic-powered, unified planning systems such as Vanguard Predictive Planning. With Vanguard, organizations can make decisions based on unified plans with less manual data entry.
