Simplify and expand your utility's financial planning and rate setting strategy
Faced with increasing demands for infrastructure investment and growing regulatory requirements, public utilities are finding it necessary to prepare multi-year budget forecasts, plan for long-term capital needs, calculate stable rates and provide deeper insights into complex financial data. Utilities often have limited resources internally to manage the growing complexity of finances, multi-year rate analysis and data-driven decision making.
5Cast budgeting software can provide the solutions you need to get the job done. Our cloud-based budget forecasting, rate analysis and data visualization tool makes it easy to develop the long-term framework required of utility managers today.
“Before, we were using a laborious Excel-based model to assist with decision support.
Now, we are automating the process and using 5Cast for rate-setting, O&M financial analysis, reporting, budget development, and more.
5Cast makes reporting a breeze, and allows us the ability to make quick, informed multi-million dollar decisions. BRAVO!”
