Business Plan does not use pre-made answers like other products, making sure the plan you make is your own.

Last week Palo Alto Software introduced a brand new version of Business Plan Pro incorporating (finally) my Plan-as-You-Go Business Planning ideas into the mainstream of the software.Once the plan is finished you can go back and alter sections until you have what you want.All the sections of an international standard business plan are covered, fully broken down and explained.Business Plan also includes a legal section to make sure you have covered the intellectual property contained within your plan.Business Plan auto saves your plan and figures as you go, meaning you can't lose your work.If you prefer to use another application to layout your plan, you can export the plan to be used in any other application, or you can print straight from the Business Plan software.You can also export the figures as a csv file to use elsewhere such as Excel or Numbers."My accountant has been telling me I need a business plan for years.Now I have a simple way to make them, I can make as many as I want to, go back and edit the information. There are layout options from within the program and you can use any fonts and sizes that you wish when printing.With this new version, when you start a new plan, Plan as You Go is the first choice for setting up a simple, practical, management-oriented business plan.Not the whole big formal document plan, but just what you need to run a business with.
