Key Features

Planning templates for any kind of planning activity

No matter what kind of planning, budget, or forecasting method, Host has pre-built templates or you can build a template to suit your exact requirements. Whether it’s for large projects, model mergers and acquisitions, or to evaluate functional decisions, you can ensure that every project has a high impact on your P&L, balance sheet, and cash flows.

Workforce Planning

Standardize compensation calculations from across the organization and streamline your workforce planning process by bringing together HR data from disparate systems like Workday, ADP, PeopleSoft, and many more. By unifying data from HR systems, spreadsheets, and outside financial plans into a single system, you can increase accuracy, predictability, and accountability around your workforce growth plans.

Advanced Capital Planning

Get better insights on the impact of new or existing capital assets on budgets and forecasts. Plan and analyze the cost of depreciation, transfers, and maintenance of these assets on your financial statements before you commit any more cash to their purchase or upkeep.

Collaborate with your team

Quickly send messages to team members with built-in chat capabilities without switching applications. Post assumptions directly in planning templates to keep everyone on the same page.

Planning workflows

Workflow can be used to manage the plan’s submission, reviews, and approvals to ensure everything is vetted properly and submitted on time. Quickly run a workflow status report to see submission status of every department in your organization to decipher where you are in your planning process. Email updates are automatically sent at each step of the workflow to the relevant stakeholders so they know when action is required.
