Dependant on Microsoft Word and Excel to run multiple documents Jian’s BizPlan Builder uses MIDAS - Multi-user Interactive Document Assemble System to put it all together into a useable plan. What this means is that BizPlan Builder is a program that displays and works together with (highly) programmed and preformatted spreadsheets and documents. The system works pretty effortlessly to open and close different sections of the plan and financial projection templates. There are some compromises however…we experienced problems with our version of MS Office and required significant updates before the files would open properly…so to some extent the program is only as reliable as Microsoft Office. Finally, the window that the documents and spreadsheets open in at times is not large enough for the content making it difficult to see what is coming up down or across the page.
The program has some really cool features including shared files allowing you to load the program on multiple computers and open the same files every time. You can even assign varying levels of access to different account users by username and password. Another cool feature is the multiple variations of business plan templates available by selecting your business type (retail, service, etc) and/or who the plan is written for (bank, investor, strategic plan). A nice touch is that each section of the plan includes text that is customized with your company information and owners name giving “boiler plate” text that is then customized giving suggestions to the user. The plan outline can be as short as a few pages although the template we chose was 87 pages and that was only the standard text. While this means the outlines are comprehensive they also can be a little daunting for a first time plan writer.
The financial projections have three options, two of which we tested. The Basic Projections amount to several independent spreadsheets similar to templates you fill in if you have the information. The second one we tested is the intermediate program. Important Note: The projections in this program are for excel wizards only! We found a couple of minor errors in the spreadsheets coding but they still took us some time to find and correct. If you understand excel functions like “IF” statements, cell protection, and have some accounting background the program can be
rewarding…if not look to a different program.
Highs: Pre-filled Customized Text, Auto File Sharing
Lows: A little cumbersome, lengthy instructions for projections and excel know-how requirement
Bottom Line: High on content, highly advanced/customizable projections but definitely not for everyone.
