Trying to predict budgets is difficult in times when energy prices are volatile. The optima™ Budgets module helps you predict energy consumption and costs for future financial years, set budgets and then proactively monitor progress with clear informative reports.

Budgets are calculated using half hourly data or invoice consumptions, together with the relevant contract prices and, where appropriate, inflation factors. Batch processing tools are provided so that even the largest customers can produce budgets quickly and easily.

Management information is provided for all organisation levels ranging from individual accounts to consolidated totals for any Operations Manager or Finance Director.
Receiving accurate accruals in a timely fashion has become essential for most Finance Directors, and optima™ delivers this by calculating Provisional invoices based on actual consumption and contract prices to create an accurate version of the real invoice. The processing power provided by optima™ means that what would take days if using spreadsheets can be done in minutes.
