If you already have financial data in Microsoft Excel, you can easily import it and link it to your forecast. Include these tables as part of your plan, or use them behind the scenes for advanced financial analysis. Enhance and personalize your business plan while saving substantial time over starting from scratch.

Import from your other accounting software
Importing from QuickBooks or Peachtree saves you valuable time and effort. Instead of retyping all the historical data you want to include in your plan, just click import and it's done for you. Once it's there, it's easy  to base your forecasts on your past performance.

Create long-term financial forecasts

Entrepreneur Magazine's Business Plan Pro allows for long-term financial forecasting. Detailed forecasting is available through the first five years, while a long-term macro-view summary plan can be created for up to 10 years in the future.
