CRM For Small Business
Daniel Elsing - EGroup Business Services
Castaway 3-way forecasting is fantastic. I have researched a couple of other leading business planning software packages and Castaway provides 10x more features and flexibility. I just developed a comprehensive 5 year Profit & Loss, Cashflow and Balance Sheet for a business in less than a day. Great for budgeting, business plans and bank financing. Also with direct interface to MYOB and Xero for actual results import.
Brett Wiseman - Interact Business Consulting
We have been using Castaway for three years now. In my 27 years as an accountant, no other piece of software I have encountered gets even close to equalling the value added to our practice and to the value we have been able to add to our clients' businesses, by using it. Our business has grown 40% in the last 2 years and 90% of this growth is attributable to Castaway work. Castaway is an essential tool for all advisory firms.
Stephen Gleeson - Atlas Pearls and Perfumes
Our Company has been budgeting and cashflow modelling in Excel for many years and developed a sophisticated financial model. However, budgeting became a nightmare for our finance team as the Excel-based model became too complicated and never balanced when we consolidated the various entities in our Group. We switched to Castaway as it was easy to use and enabled us to run various “what-if” scenarios with middle management in a format they could understand. We no longer have broken links and budgeting is now a much more productive exercise. Recommend Castaway to anyone who wants to make budgeting simple and clear to all involved.
