Corporate planning is one of the most important tasks in managing a company. Management and controlling mentally anticipate future corporate decisions during planning. Corporate planning software can support this creation of forecasts, simulations and scenarios. Planning software can be used, for example, to create sub-plans for different areas of the company, such as personnel, loans, investments, production and sales. Companies must be able to identify developments in good time and incorporate them into their plans. Corporate planning represents an essential function of performance management. Corporate planning software usually enables both top-down and bottom-up planning, provides drill-down functions to sub-plans and allows the automatic determination of P&L, balance sheets and liquidity.
