Confidently communicate financial performance to your board and community.
Effectively managing district finances involves more than balancing a checkbook, and your school board and community want to know that hard-earned dollars are going to have the largest impact on students. How can you ensure the financial health of your district and show your stakeholders that you’re making the right moves?
Financial Planning and Budget Management Analytics, powered by Forecast5, make it easy to create budget projections, analyze and communicate budget results, and build complex plans for project support in negotiations, tax levy decisions, and capital and finance planning.
Compare “what-if” scenarios.
Streamline how you create, run, and compare financial results with saved assumption layouts, custom queries, and comparative report templates. Use scenario assumptions with comparative measurements including Actuals, Cumulative, and Year-Over-Year, to present data-based projection options for decision-makers.
Get buy-in for your multiyear budget.
Easily develop a multiyear budget forecast and see how different assumptions and variables impact future revenues and expenses. Then, communicate your findings to your stakeholders with comprehensive, built-in reporting options.
Simulate the impact of collective bargaining agreements.
Illustrate your 5-year financial forecast to build trust during negotiations. Build proposals, present financial scenarios, and provide visibility into account detail for cost analysis.
Monitor performance against this year’s budget.
Quickly build month-to-date reports to show exactly how you are performing against your existing budget and project monthly cash flow. Drive deep discussions about what to do immediately, track your progress in the short-term, and see trends and deviations from your historical pattern of spending.
Create board-ready monthly reports and visuals.
Inform and educate the school board and community about short-term decisions and impact. Build multiyear scenarios and projections that support your financial decisions for the district.
It has completely improved my experience of being able to pull data, use data, and articulate data to my board of education and my community. Without these tools, I’d be spending way more time than I feel I need to be able to put together comprehensive plans for our district, for our students, for our staff.
