    BudgetEase added a new tool to its bag of tricks - Cash Forecasting and Business Planning using LivePlan. We have taken the classes, passed the test and are now Certified LivePlan Advisors. We have looked at dozens of forecasting programs and none are as easy to use.  Plus, the graphics are great.

    LivePlan syncs with QuickBooks or Xero once you complete a simple set up that only takes about 2 hours.  Once set up you can test different scenarios.

    Easily build a one-page pitch

    Talking to investors, you could also easily build a one-page infographic that visually represents your business opportunity. Share your professional pitch page with lenders, investors, business partners or advisors, and tell the story of your business.
