How LucaNet software can benefit you

Automated forecasting

Our forecasting software offers a simple way to derive (rolling) projections on the basis of existing planning. Here, LucaNet tool helps you by making it easy to not only merge your actual and planning data at the forecast level, but adjust your planning data to forecast figures, as well. This is achieved using the forecasting software’s built-in wizards. By using the wizards for forecasting or seasonality, you will be on the right track for developing flawless planning based on any level of detail or time series.

Simple scenario creation

The LucaNet scenario planning software also enables you to create all the scenarios you want based on your existing planning. In this process, any number of parameters (e.g. increase in sales, material usage rate, exchange rate, customer payment modalities) can be modified in our scenario planning tool. Thanks to the fully integrated data model, the effects of each change are immediately apparent in all the relevant areas – including the cash flow statement and the pertinent KPIs.

Flexible comparisons

Achieve full transparency: In LucaNet forecasting and scenario planning software, all your (rolling) forecasts and scenarios are saved in separated planning data levels, making it easy to integrate them into the available comparison views. This gives you the flexibility and transparency you need for your analyses and allows you to “play around” with your financial data. Instantaneously compare the impacts of changing assumptions, actual data, and seasonality at any time frequency.

Maximum transparency

Switch between actual and planning views and specify detail at any level, including group, individual company, or management segments. With the LucaNet forecasting software, you can easily bring up any number of comparison views, and trace the origin of each figure back the original figure or assumption.

Scenario planning made easy

To enter planning time series, you can either use various planning forms or import data directly from any data source including MS Excel, your ERP, or HR system. Our forecasting software includes a wide array of wizards to project on historic or customized seasonality. The pre-defined payment modules and accounting rules incorporate the impact of every planning assumption to provide visibility from P&L to the balance sheet and the resulting cash flow statement.

Flexible planning scenarios

The integrated task management in our forecasting tool allows you to completely customize and manage your entire planning workflow. Every planning step can be assigned to an editor and observer for processing and monitoring. The automated e-mail notification system makes it possible to manage and track decentralized planning processes in a centralized fasion – ensuring nothing is dropped or forgotten again.
