Tips for Easy QAD Budgets

“It’s budget time, ugh.”

How many times have you heard that (and worse) during that dreaded time of year? It seems nobody likes budget time, especially your Accounting and Budgeting team who are charged with the tasks of creating worksheets for managers and department heads; providing last year’s line item costs; compiling past and current performance figures from profit and loss accounts, balance sheets and cash flow forecasts; managing versions and versions of unapproved budgets; and finally, once the budget is approved, keying it all into QAD. What a time-consuming, hair-pulling nightmare!

If you are a QAD user, chances are you use Excel spreadsheets to prepare budget worksheets, distribute data to managers and department heads, and shepherd the budget through the approval process. Finally, once everyone has come to a consensus, you are given the green light to import the budget into QAD. Now the fun begins. Spending days and days keying and verifying endless numbers into QAD –- multiple numbers for every entity-account-sub account-cost center combination, one by one, one by one…
