Accountex is the UK's only National Exhibition for Accountants and Finance Directors working in practice, business and the public sector. This year it took place at the ExCel exhibition centre in London on Thursday 15-16th May. Financial Driver was there and attracted a lot of interest, particularly from accounting practices that want to help their clients improve the quality of their budgets and forecasts, as well as providing them with useful management information. For more information on this take a look at our partner program.
One of our business associates - Michael Coveney, gave a presentation on 'Improving the accuracy of plans and forecasts', which was well attended with some delegates sitting on the floor. In the introduction to the talk Michael commented "When it comes to budgets and forecasts, everyone has an opinion. But how can you be sure that the numbers being set are both realistic and have the buy-in of managers?". In the session that followed, Michael gave practical solutions to these issues and his take on the role that technology plays in developing an effective planning and forecasting process. You can download a copy of his talk by following this link Improving the accuracy of plans and forecasts. Michael plan's to release two new white papers over the next few months on how to evaluate a modern planning and reporting system; and how to implement an effective budgeting and forecasting application.
