WHAT IS WHAT-IF ANALYSIS?

Safeguarding Your Decision-Making

What-if analysis is the process of isolating and analyzing future opportunities or challenges your business will face. When examining a simple future scenario, what-if questions can be answered in a matter of minutes or hours. However, when attempting to answer a complicated what-if question, especially concerning its impacts on a business's full set of financial statements, the analysis can take weeks or months in a traditional spreadsheet environment.

Synario helps finance leaders answer multi-faceted what-if questions while drastically mitigating the risk of error propagation or bad results. In Excel, finance teams are risking their credibility on what-if analysis that is difficult to verify. As new what-if questions are asked, Excel-based financial models become copied and edited, meaning potential errors transfer to new environments. With Synario, patented layering technology means what-if analysis is performed and managed within a single financial model. Even more, the results of every what-if analysis can be directly presented from Synario, removing an additional step from the traditional "spreadsheet to presentation slides" process.
