Budgeting & Forecasting
Agile and effective planning, budgeting and forecasting is increasingly important to enable better performance in rapidly changing business environments. Planning needs to extend beyond the finance department and into the organisation to drive efficiency and realise the potential of organisation-wide performance management.

It also sets new standards for agile and continuous planning – making it easy to produce accurate budgets and forecasts, supported by self-service capabilities and a high degree of automation. Hypergene saves time, improves planning accuracy and supports better decision-making during times of change.

Hypergene’s self-service configuration capabilities make it easy to configure and maintain various types of planning models – from annual or multi-year budgeting and forecasting models to rolling planning models. Hypergene provides the tools you need for effective, continuous and agile planning in changing business environments.
To ensure easy and efficient planning, Hypergene seamlessly integrates data from any business system containing relevant data – including core systems such as ERP, HR and Payroll. Budgeting and forecasting processes are then prepopulated with suggested planning data (basic information and planning data from previous processes), eliminating double data entry and making planning straightforward and intuitive.
Empowering your workflow
Hypergene makes it easy to capture, review and approve planning data, supported by a powerful workflow engine. Workflows are easy to define and tasks can be automatically shared with the organisation – giving you full control and traceability.
Captured planning data is automatically aggregated and made available for analysis. Decision-makers can easily analyse actual outcomes in relation to budgets and forecasts, view trends and spot deviations, supporting better decisions throughout your organisation. Planning data is fully visible and available throughout the Hypergene product suite.
Hypergene makes organisation-wide budgeting and forecasting easy and efficient – empowered by automation, seamless integration and flexible self-service configuration.
