Between year-end reconciliations and solidifying next year’s budget, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate right now. Those tasks can be tedious and time-consuming, especially if you’re relying on offline spreadsheets to get the job done.
Ever wondered how much better life would be if you could update your forecasts faster, tell the story behind your data more easily and better help your organization plan to grow with confidence? That’s why we created the Vena Preview—so you can see for yourself how to free up more time for analysis, improve cross-functional collaboration, unify planning with accurate data and focus on the future of your business.
What Is the Vena Preview?
The Vena Preview is a free, interactive walkthrough of our Complete Planning solution. We’ll show you how Vena leverages the flexibility of Microsoft Excel—the world’s leading spreadsheet platform—within a powerful, intuitive and easy-to-use business planning ecosystem. We’ll also show you how working with up-to-date numbers can simplify data storytelling and support informed decision making.
What Does the Vena Preview Cover?
The Vena Preview only takes a few minutes to complete and it walks you through a process that could take hours without our platform. Using fictional data, the Vena Preview puts you in the position of a finance leader looking to reconcile a large variance between your budget and forecasted operating expenses. You get a walkthrough of Vena’s Excel interface, but you also get to see how our automations work as you analyze that spike in expenses.
This is exactly what you’ll discover with the Vena Preview:
- You’ll learn how to generate real-time financial dashboards with your budget, forecasts and actuals all in one location—because it’s easier to identify variances with a holistic view of your business at your fingertips.
- You’ll use Vena’s drill-down function to access the transactional details behind your actuals and identify the reason for the variance. This is how Vena makes it easy to uncover the story your data is telling you.
- Once the discrepancy is resolved, you’ll update your forecast with the correct actuals and see the business results instantly.
- You’ll learn how to foster collaboration with Vena’s advanced workflows and audit trails.
How Can You Access the Vena Preview?
The Vena Preview is accessible to anyone on any computer (Windows or Mac.) However, you do need to have an existing Office 365 subscription to try the Vena Preview. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, though, because we can still give you a customized demonstration of our platform at any time.
