Accelerate Forecasting With Google Sheets

Helping Finance Teams

Leverage the best available knowledge in your team and turn your forecasting into a collaborative exercise. Manage access, track and review changes, collaborate and communicate on top of your existing spreadsheets.

The Challenges of Preparing Your
  Financial Forecasts on Spreadsheets

Creating a financial forecast involves projecting previously collected financial data into the future. You shouldn't need to source such data in a different file from the one where your forecast analysis will live. Layer helps you keep the source and report data on the same file in just a few clicks.

Without layer

Sensitive data is often exchanged via unsecured email.

The data needed for a forecasting exercise is regularly gathered from different teams via multiple channels. This lack of control over both medium and channel can lead to internal or external data breaches compromising business integrity.

With layer

No more manual email sending.

Layer offers a closed system without the need to send around email attachments. All communication related to your spreadsheet happens in context inside your spreadsheet.

Chasing for input is tedious and time consuming

With layer

No more fighting to get contributions

Set reminders for contribution requests and let Layer remind stakeholders for you. Layer gives you full transparency on your processes.

Reviewing submissions is not a scalable process.
