Business Plan Pro Premier allows you to show them the business valuation information and investment analysis details they need to commit to investing in your business. Using all the plan tools, you will present a complete, professional plan.
Visually Track your Cash Flow
Where exactly is your cash going? Business Plan Pro Premier Edition includes a visual cash flow chart called the Cash Pilot, which shows you how small changes in collecting payments or ordering inventory can have a big impact on your overall cash flow. Cash is king, so make sure you manage it—and your business—wisely.
