With Vena, a single version of the truth, automated processes, version control, audit trails, user permissions and more are available. You no longer need to choose between Excel and its limitations and the cost of switching to new software.
Vena’s centralized database keeps your budgets consistent across the board and guarantees data integrity.
Your database can integrate with any data source, Excel or otherwise. This ensures your single version of the truth is complete and updated in real time.
And with automatic data aggregation and consolidation, you’ll produce budgets you can trust in less time by limiting manual data entry and human errors.
Use our drag and drop process designer to easily map out and automate your budgeting processes.
Then, create and assign tasks to get your team involved. You can even pull in stakeholders at the right time with automated email notifications.
Once your workflows are humming along, you can track progress, uncover bottlenecks, and even change workflows on the fly.
Create accurate reports and models that pull from your centralized database for real-time analysis — no IT required.
Then, our MS Office integration presents the budget reports leadership cares about in KPI and Executive dashboards. Sending reports via email is a thing of the past.
Managers can even log into their dashboards and reports, customize them, and run their own “What If” scenarios without leaving Excel.
You don’t have to choose between budgeting in Excel and its shortcomings, or radically changing your process to fit new software.
With Vena, you can carry out your budgeting calculations and processes in Excel, without the issues.
Plus, user adoption is high and change management is virtually non-existent when you choose Vena because everyone is already comfortable in Excel.
“The ability to calculate reams of data and move it between templates is hugely beneficial. We can version up, adjust a few line items in a template and then flow those changes back to production within minutes. This helps avoid different versions on separate machines or an employee leaving a file open and locking it for everyone else.”
“We were able to incorporate more processes than what we originally started with, which, in addition to time savings, ensured error-free reporting and seamless integration of various sub-processes (in the end – resulting in higher-quality deliverables).”
“We currently use Vena Solutions for our budgeting process for 270 restaurants spread across 4 legal entities.”
“Intuitive and powerful workflow allows us to pre-determine our distribution cycle for spreadsheets including managing the review process, which also captures full auditing.”
“The understanding of the variances from budget expectations and/or last month’s expectations is now a relatively easy exercise, saving us time and thus saving us money.”
