Long-Term Capital Planning & Funding
Finding the perfect balance of funding and capital initiatives or investments is a daunting task even when there are only two capital projects in play. Unfortunately, most mid to large-size organizations are analyzing a plethora of capital projects, attempting to find the best mixture to match their organization’s long-term strategic goals.
Synario offers an agile capital planning tool that streamlines your capital plan analysis and allows finance teams to look at every combination of funding and capital projects.

Utility companies have hundreds of capital projects, initiatives, and purchases to plan, however, they generally have limited funding or resources to include every initiative in a single year’s capital plan.
With Synario, they can quickly analyze any mixture of capital projects and funding sources to find their best capital plan. Synario also accelerates any organization’s long-term capital planning process by allowing for cloud-based simultaneous collaboration within every financial model.
Capital Planning Best Practices
Built Directly into Your Synario Capital Plan
McKinsey & Company’s article on the 9 Best Practices in Capital Planning lists capital planning best practices that are already built into every Synario financial model or capital plan.
In spreadsheets, these long-term capital planning best practices are difficult to execute. In Synario, however, every user can seamlessly incorporate best practices to accelerate their capital planning process. Here’s how:
