Futrli Review: Reporting and Modelling Toolkit for Xero
Accurate forecasting is essential when developing an effective growth strategy. Futrli is a flexible reporting and modeling toolkit that integrates directly with Xero — here’s how it can help your business manage cash flow.
Futrli is a forecasting and reporting toolkit designed to integrate with the Xero cloud accounting suite. By pulling data directly from Xero, Futrli provides small businesses with the ability to capture real-time insights into the current and future state of their business and make informed decisions.
Strategic planning relies on accurate real-time data. Businesses of all sizes thrive on preparation — business owners need access to reliable, accurate data that can be used to predict a range of different factors that influence cash flow and growth rate.
Accurate forecasting allows business owners to anticipate possible sales volumes, inventory status, manufacturing capability, or predict demand. Collecting the data necessary to create an accurate forecast, however, can be time consuming. Spreadsheets and other static data formats are difficult to interpret, reducing the effectiveness of planning and forecasting. Futrli does a better job.
