CloudBudget improves the way small and medium size organizations manage the budgeting process.
CloudBudget is a pay-as-you-go SaaS budgeting solution focused on solving the budgeting problems experienced by small and mid-size businesses and corporate divisions operating multiple offices.
CloudBudget’s target customers are the over 90,000 SMBs and countless corporate divisions seeking to avoid the high cost of implementing and maintaining enterprise systems and the limitations of budgeting via Excel spreadsheets.
Compatibility with Salesforce products (CloudBudget is built upon the force.com platform) and a flexible design make CloudBudget particularly attractive to the rapidly growing Salesforce user base.
CloudBudget runs on salesforce.com servers and infrastructure, giving users uninterrupted system availability, fast response times, and the highest possible data security.
The CloudBudget service presents users with a sophisticated, online, data engine called the Cloud Consultant.
The Cloud Consultant makes it possible to easily and rapidly establish a precise budgeting workflow across numerous departments, offices, and subsidiaries.
Via the Cloud Consultant organizations can remove the need to engage internal IT resources or engage outside consultants.
CloudBudget target users are small and medium organizations with annual revenue between 2 and 250 million USD and multiple office and/or subsidiary locations, distributed either domestically or internationally. Users fall into two main categories:
· Organizations hanging onto error ridden excel-based budgeting systems that they have outgrown
· Organizations unsatisfied with the value / price of existing budgeting systems and approaches

If you’ve ever looked up from your desk and thought that the office seemed to have more consultants in it than staff on the payroll then there’s probably a logical answer. The answer usually comes in two parts, firstly you’re not dreaming and secondly there’s obviously a major IT project going on.
This scenario has been played out in countless small and medium sized businesses and is often the result of business growth. This growth will have accelerated the need to ditch the unreliable spreadsheet based budgeting system that could just about cope when the business started but is struggling to keep up with the vertical numbers and the multi-location enterprise it has now become.
Step forward the gang of consultants and their game changing budgeting software. The paradox here is that if you’d had game changing budgeting software at the outset it would have told you that you probably couldn’t afford them.
CloudBudget aims to remove both the need to install software and pay consultancy fees in one hit and if it’s as good as it looks at first sight will no doubt succeed.
Based on the Force.com platform the application gives management all the tools needed to generate accurate budgets based on the answers given in an extensive online survey called Cloud Consultant (OK so you need one consultant!). This is no brief business outline though and will take some time to complete so preparation is key. Having said that, it doesn’t charge an hourly rate...
