The challenges of using spreadsheets
  to prepare your Budgets

Spreadsheets offer limited possibilities for collaborating in the Budgeting process. Layer prevents you from needing to migrate your Budgeting & Financial Planning processes to a new platform.

Without layer

Your budgeting files have super sensitive data and cannot be shared with everyone.

At the same time, you need input from different teams or departments.

Consequently, you need to use email, Slack or separate templates to collect the relevant data.

With layer

No more lengthy Slack or email threads with back-and-forth attachments.

Manage the access to individual tabs or ranges of your budgeting file and request input from particular recipients.

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

Reviewing input for the budget takes a lot of time and is prone to error.

Each data contributor or stakeholder sends their input or feedback differently.

Integrating it into your spreadsheet can quickly produce copy-paste errors that, oftentimes, are only identified when it is too late.

With layer

Turn data consolidation into a 2-click process.

Get notified, track and quickly review any feedback or input, and decide which parts to accept.

Layer will then automatically merge the updated data into your master file. No more copy-pasting!

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

Project management is a hard-to-accomplish process.

Monitoring deadlines and work progress is hectic and tedious, especially when relying on inputs from multiple different stakeholders.

With layer

No need to chase your colleagues for data.

Set deadlines for input requests, and Layer will automatically notify and remind them when needed.
