Only a bottom-up approach gives you real control over your forecasts
Building a budget by taking last year’s figures and applying a multiplier doesn’t work when the underlying business environment has completely changed. To adjust to a radically different environment, you need the level of control that only a bottom-up approach can give you.
In times of uncertainty, flexibility is key
The Coronavirus outbreak means business plans need updating frequently. Compas streamlines this process, enabling businesses to update forecasts easily and operate as efficiently as possible.
