Make sense of the numbers without using spreadsheets

Using spreadsheets to analyze your financials is painful — it often requires building complex pivot tables or toggling between multiple documents. But with the LivePlan Dashboard, you can quickly build visual reports and summaries that show what your financial data really means — all without spreadsheets. Try LivePlan for free »
