It’s that time of year again. Planning and budgeting season is officially upon us, which means it’s time to set hours of your day aside in order to plug data into those excel spreadsheets…

Or not.

No, we’re not saying throw your hands in the air and just give up on this round of planning and budgeting. But what if we could offer a solution to your challenges? What if we said there’s a tool that could help minimize those hours of manually inputting data? Connect your budgeting tools with your ERP system? Increase data integrity and help your company continue to scale?

Sounds pretty suite, doesn’t it? Well, you’re in luck because on this episode of “The NetSuite Podcast” we’re diving deep into planning and budgeting, why you need to be thinking about solutions right now and the things to consider when searching for those solutions.

Oracle NetSuite’s Head of Industry Marketing, Ranga Bodla, takes over as a guest host, sitting down with Mike Shannon, a NetSuite regional sales manager helping to improve corporate budgeting, forecasting, modeling and reporting for organizations in North America.

Shannon explains NetSuite’s Planning and Budgeting Cloud Solution (PBCS), which is an Oracle solution that was recently added to the NetSuite base and scaled down to help organizations of all sizes, from a startup level to an enterprise level. He explains the importance of utilizing a cloud solution, the fluid PBCS integration with NetSuite’s ERP system and why organizations at all different points of growth need to be considering both tools at the same time. He also reveals Oracle’s continued investment into PBCS as well as its monthly (yes, monthly) upgrades.

Finally, Shannon reveals the top five benefits of PBCS and how top competitors differ in their offerings.
