INTEGRATED, TRUSTED DATA

The Axiom Budgeting & Forecasting solution provides a central hub of information, delivering absolute trust in the numbers. 

Using robust integration tools, Axiom automates the integration of data from GL, production and sales systems and even off-line spreadsheets directly into a single database. Designed to ensure data integrity, our validation and alerting tools ensure data issues are spotted and automatically resolved. 

DRIVER-BASED MODELING

No model should ever be set in stone. To respond to changing realities, businesses must be able to adapt their plans and set a new course where necessary. Axiom delivers precisely this capability. This includes leveraging an easy-to-use global driver library, enabling you to quickly incorporate the most appropriate operational drivers into your financial planning model at speed and with precision. 

ALL YOUR PLANNING NEEDS, ALL IN ONE PLACE

Axiom supports all forms of planning including financial and operational budgeting, long-range planning, rolling forecasts, staff and salary planning, capital budgeting and sales planning. 

Axiom’s user-friendly structure supports both top-down and bottom-up planning or a hybrid model. Drill down to plan at a subject level (e.g. department, employee, SKU, product category) or get a bigger picture of organisation-wide performance – you decide.

Rolling Forecasts

With Axiom Rolling Forecasts, you can respond, rethink and readjust your course in the face of whatever comes your way. In a volatile and unpredictable landscape, this is your essential toolkit. 

FACE THE FUTURE WITH CONFIDENCE 

While most organisations have a long term objective, reaching it requires a certain degree of versatility. Rolling forecasts give you the ability to tweak your planning strategy according to what’s happening on the ground, both within your business and in the wider marketplace. 

These rolling forecasts can be integrated with your long-term financial plans and operational budgets. You can then develop evidence-based strategic and tactical planning procedures, minimise risk and ensure optimal allocation of resources. 

With Axiom’s Rolling Forecast solution, organisations can:
  • Enable a consistent, accurate, forward-looking business outlook
  • Develop a reporting cadence that aligns to the trading patterns of the business rather than just the accounting calendar
  • Establish relative versus fixed measures that focus on perpetual review and continuous improvement
  • Model and execute course correction throughout the reporting period
  • Focus on the realities and opportunities facing your business, helping you avoid aspirational bias and false assumptions
