Key Planning and Budgeting Features
C-level executives are moving to ‘connected planning’ to test assumptions, check on markets and work with clients rather than guessing how tomorrow will be different from today. CFOs need to integrate financial and operations reporting then distribute the results quickly, clearly and globally more than ever before. Nimble companies make fast, data-driven decisions. NetSuite Planning and Budgeting takes today’s data and makes it shareable, secured via a Web-ready cloud platform. Get started with:
- Model-enabled tools integrate data from various sources and enable predictive analytics for projections.
- Visual dashboards offer multiple models for different users: actual numbers are safely stored while users track forecasts, progress reports and other details.
- HTML-5 interface delivers the same experience, security and functionality on mobile devices, web native machines or desktop computers.
- Notes with comments, worksheets, formulas and underlying details about the data to provide reasoning and insight are included. Supporting data and its source is just a click away at every step.

Enterprise-level Tools and Flexibility
NetSuite Planning and Budgeting gives insights into sales, spending and finance, but has tools to integrate capital budget plans, workforce spending and staffing along with other operational planning. That gives you focus where it’s needed most, and broad reach only where required. There’s no need to buy extra modules or disable certain features. Upgrade on your terms.
Is Smart View integration included?
Yes, the ability to share comments using Microsoft Word or Excel spreadsheets and formulas are part of the implementation. One particular strength of NetSuite Planning and Budgeting is its history as part of enterprise-grade Hyperion Planning and the ability to use collaboration of existing reports instead of requiring organizational change to fit the software.

Partner with RSM for the right NetSuite Planning and Budgeting fit
The timing of cloud migration can be crucial in choosing how and when to implement a planning toolkit. Is your data ready? Are your people ready for training? Can your partners access and benefit from data access?
It’s time to stop sending Excel spreadsheets as attachments with guesswork or local details that cannot show granular details. Using actual data with faster, more accurate reports allows adjustments in pricing, discounts, spending plan or modeling that affect your bottom-line. With a cloud-based service, data gets even more useful when it is centralized, consistent and sharable.
NetSuite Planning and Budgeting uses the same cloud-based Microsoft Office tools your organization already knows, so the upgrade path is easier. Access controls and security offer options for sharing data, compliance and audit tracking to simplify who can use specific tools and databases.
