Overall Satisfaction with LivePlan

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.
  • Cheap software solution
  • Helped us collaborate on ideas during the initial stage in details
  • Helped us prepare for investors and pitching
We did not really find a similar solution. All other solutions are focused on project management, [there's] nothing on generating a business plan. There is nothing on this level that helps people without any business experience write the plan. They have samples, instructions what to write where, how to prepare for pitching, and generate dashboards. Nothing in this market gets anywhere close to this solution.
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).
