Forecasting and financial planning with AI - increase accuracy
In corporate steering, the focus is on the future. Increasing dynamics of markets make it difficult for many companies to predict developments and generate an accurate financial forecast. Preparing a financial plan is not only time-consuming and cost-intensive, it is also highly error-prone and the forecasts are subjectively watered-down. This makes corporate steering more difficult.
Until now, financial planning has been built up in a lengthy process using individual simulation models and the specialized knowledge of individual employees. This leaves many CFOs/CEOs with the feeling that they have not taken all the information into account or have no objective basis for decision-making - to the detriment of strategic corporate planning.
Confidence in financial forecasts is a key issue at this point, both for leaders and for the capital market, which punishes a profit warning harshly. There is all the more need for more efficient planning of key financial figures with reliable and objective results.
