Pluvo is a next generation financial modelling, forecasting, and budgeting tool designed to save you time and effort – while turning your finances into a source of revenue.

As a business owner or CFO you probably oversee: financial strategy, forecasting, analysis, budgeting, reporting, and much, much more. 

And as a decision maker, how many hours, days, or even weeks have you spent trying to accomplish all of the above in a maze of convoluted (often incorrect) excel spreadsheets? Don’t you wish you could spend more of your time making strategic decisions which drive your business forward? The solution is simple: Pluvo™ ☔

A cutting edge financial planning and analysis tool that empowers rookie and established business owners alike to plan, budget, and execute on financial plans with the confidence and efficiency of a veteran CFO. 

Heard enough?

Owners and managers have a time problem

You didn’t start your own business to spend all day learning how to become an excel ninja. You started it because there is a demand for the product or service you offer. So, shouldn’t your sole focus, as owner or decision maker, be on how to get that product/service into the hands of your customers?

Current tools see everyday business owners struggling to manage their budgets, profit and loss (P&L) statements, payment processing, payroll and more in cumbersome spreadsheet tools such as Excel or Google Sheets. 

If this describes you, you’ll find that you aren’t alone. According to new research almost half of all spreadsheet users have extreme difficulty manipulating and making sense of the data contained within their sheets. The other half are too proud to admit it. 

We need to find an easier way for financial decisions to be made – whether that be from a CEO, owner/operator, or a finance expert such as a CFO.

We’ve spoken to hundreds of business owners in Canada and across the globe, and we’ve discovered first hand that the biggest issues these entrepreneurs face stem from their reliance on archaic tools (like excel) for critical business functions. If any of these issues sound familiar: 

  1. Manual forecasting and budgeting,
  2. Difficulty integrating data from your ERP (Quickbooks, Xero),
  3. Hours/day spent on data entry – finances, procurement, etc,
  4. Version control issues in your most important sheets,
  5. No real visibility over key business metrics,
  6. Important financial models are too difficult to understand…

What would you say to a tool that removes all of the guesswork and the pain from your finances – leaving you only with concrete actionable insights that you can use to make your business even more profitable than it already is?
