You are tasked with creating multi-million dollar capital budgets over a planning period of 5, 10, 15 years or more, and your only aid is Microsoft Excel or a home-grown tool that has outlived its useful life. Many agencies today are doing precisely that, and wishing there was a tool built specifically for this task.
Using manual tools and outdated systems poses significant risks to investments because the methods are prone to error, cumbersome, and unreliable. The solution is robust software—Aurigo Masterworks Capital Planning module—that can talk to different systems, assimilate the numbers from various funding sources, analyze multi-year cash flows, and perform what-if analyses. During the course of planning , the module presents you with smart reports that shows where your money is coming from, how it is put to best use over the years, which projects you should bump up or down, and what contingency measures you should put in place “just in case.”
Aurigo Masterworks Capital Planning module is a sophisticated cloud-based software that allows your planning and investment teams to perform theoretical forecasting, project cash-flow, budget analysis, multi-year plans, and run detailed what-if scenarios seamlessly. It takes into account inflation, interest capitalization and amortization over the out-years when computing cash flow, while you define your own expenditure curves. What-if planning scenarios can be used to easily compare existing plans and explore possible alternatives to determine the best course of action for each project long before the projects are even awarded.
