EPM Budget & Planning 

Infor Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Budget and Planning allows you to create a financial plan that outlines the expected revenues and expenses for a specific period (e.g., month, year, etc.).  You can create plan hierarchies, compare plans to forecasts and quickly adjust plans.

Budgeting & Planning is used to model the impact of different financial plans on the balance sheet and profit and loss accounts before submitting plans for approval.  It is used in specialized business areas such as financial planning, capital planning, cash flow, and forecasting. These are integrated into Budgeting & Planning as sub plans and features that enable planning at a more detailed level than in the core financial model.  For instance:

  • You can create a fiscal or rolling forecast. A fiscal forecast is based on a twelve-month fiscal year period. A rolling forecast crosses over the fiscal year end as part of the forecasting process.
  • Capital Planning information can be created as part of the overall capital investment and planning process or to specifically address capital components within a decision package.  Capital Planning includes depreciation calculations that are recorded on the income statement and balance sheet as appropriate to match the recognized depreciation expense over the life of the asset.
  • Cash flow is the difference in the amount of cash available at the beginning of a period (opening balance) and the amount at the end of the period (closing balance) attributable to movements in operations, investments, and financing cash flows.  A cash flow workbook is provided for budget and forecast data.
