Host Analytics, the leading innovator of cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions, today showcased Host Analytics MyPlan Mobile, a mobile version of its revolutionary Host Analytics MyPlan software, which allows finance to engage with budget owners in the planning, budgeting, and forecasting while maintaining finance control over the process. MyPlan Mobile will empower busy professionals to allocate and reallocate resources anytime, anywhere, further increasing the collaboration between finance and their business colleagues.
“At Host Analytics, we love putting our innovations to work solving our customers’ challenges,” said Dave Kellogg. “The advancements we’ve shown over the past few years have far outpaced the industry, and MyPlan Mobile is yet another example of the ideas we’re turning into reality for our customers.”
Introduced in February, Host Analytics MyPlan is the only offering in the industry that delivers an intuitive interface with a task-oriented design made specifically for business owners. Unlike any other offering of its kind, MyPlan allows budget owners to view the state of their business and make updates to budgets and forecasts, all in the same tool. As a result of this collaboration, enterprises can instantly allocate and reallocate resources to create optimal business outcomes.
“Enterprise performance management systems offer powerful tools for planning, budgeting and forecasting, but their advantages are diminished when finance has to gather data and work with operational leaders and budget owners who remain stuck in broken, spreadsheet-based methods,” said Doug Henschen, VP and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research. “Host Analytics is addressing this problem head on with MyPlan and MyPlan mobile, connected tools designed specifically for business user collaborators. In the fast-moving era of digital transformation, the leading organizations will be those that can extend agile and connected budgeting, planning and forecasting processes well beyond finance and into operational areas including sales, human resources and more.”
MyPlan Mobile will bring a streamlined, mobile application with all the innovation of MyPlan, that’s designed for touch-driven smartphones and tablets to surface only the most relevant information and key features. MyPlan Mobile empowers business users and allows finance to maintain control of the planning process, enabling on-the-go business users to view budget, forecast, and target data; examine variances between plans, targets, and forecasts; and create or update budget and forecast items with headcounts, capital expenses, travel costs, and other operational expenses.
MyPlan Mobile is slated for delivery in the second half of 2018.
