Here's how it works...
Pull deeper insights from your accounting data

Accounting systems provide only basic information about the health of your business. LivePlan turns this raw data into powerful insights.

Charts and graphs help you better understand what the numbers really mean, which makes it easier to answer questions like: “Should I be charging more?” or “Do I need to adjust my hours?”

LivePlan also uses built-in formulas made exclusively to help small businesses reduce costs, improve revenue, and grow profits. Try LivePlan for free »

Know how you stack up against competitors

LivePlan's Industry Benchmark data helps you understand your market, so you can make more informed decisions. Enter your industry and location, and you can see at a glance how your key performance metrics compare to similar companies. Use these insights to help guide how you grow your business.

Discover new ways to grow your business

Uncover big growth opportunities you might have otherwise missed. Visual dashboards make it easy to compare your key business metrics to last year or last month. This allows you to spot data trends that can help you figure out new ways to improve revenue or reduce costs.

Track your performance against your goals, identify trouble spots, and then refine your business strategy to grow faster. Try LivePlan for free »

Get faster access to key data

Always know how your business is doing—without running reports from your accounting system.

By connecting your Xero or Quickbooks account to LivePlan, you'll get updates on your key business numbers in real-time. That way, you can keep tabs on your company anytime, anywhere. It's also easy to update your data manually within LivePlan if you're not using Xero or Quickbooks. Try LivePlan for free »

Quickly build smart budgets and forecasts

Budgeting with spreadsheets is clunky and time-consuming — even if you're a pro at Excel.

Because LivePlan syncs with your accounting software, you can create forecasts and smart budgets in half the time. And if you ever get stuck, simply follow the step-by-step instructions. Try LivePlan for free »
