LivePlan is my primary financial forecasting and issue raising tool. I build out annual Pro-forma in Q4 with detailed revenue and expense category forecasts. The ability to build revenue and expense forecasts by category and the appropriate level of detail is highly useful. Monthly, and especially quarterly, we can see if and where we are off track relative to original goals and make necessary adjustments in the business. In my opinion, this is the best tool of its kind for business owners/operators. Well done.
  • It integrates with accounting software.
  • Shows appropriate levels in depth analysis.
  • UX: It's beyond time for an overhaul, especially on mobile. It can make the app seem dated.
  • The accounting software integration has been prone to break and need to be re-setup, though that seems to have improved.
It's most appropriate when properly set up by someone with a deep knowledge of PNL/Forecasting.
It's inappropriate for companies with poorly structured/inconsistently maintained financial statements.

Great for startups and ideas in development

Liveplan is used across the organization. Its purpose is to define our core business and to be our guidance for future decisions. In the beginning it was used just to write our business plan for our startup in order to present it to investors, now we use it to track our progress over time.
  • Great for startups that are still working on their idea.
  • Preparing for pitching and presenting.
  • People don't need business knowledge in order to write a professional business plan, everything is explained in details.
  • Simplicity.
  • It is software on its own and there are no abilities to connect to any other software so you have to input data constantly.
  • If you start within this software most likely over time this will be just your reference for the definition of your business, once you start growing there is not much to use here, better solutions are out there.
  • It is not a management tool as they advertise it.
It is great for startups and people that are still developing ideas. Once you are in the market it does not really have much of a use within an organization, at that stage it just becomes the reference to what core your business is. Tracking business growth is great, but again only for first 1-3 years in the market (depending on growth).
