Increased accuracy, ownership and accountability in the Sales Planning Process with IDU

Are you still preparing your sales budgets centrally? Time to change!

IDU harnesses the knowledge and expertise of teams on the ground to make your sales budgeting more accurate and efficient--and increase ownership and buy-in.

Our online, easy-to-use performance management tool allows users to capture sales budgets at a customer and product level, with real-time aggregation and management.

Build ownership of the budget by enabling users to comment on and analyse variances between planned and actual sales outcomes. The Reporting module is a two-way interface between the budget and sales ledger systems, allowing for real-time interaction with sales data. Daily, weekly and monthly sales information can be communicated directly to managers via the web.
