Performance vs Plan – Opstarts Actuals

If there’s one thing you can count on in business, it’s that things never go exactly as planned. With our improved Actuals functionality, Opstarts makes it easy to stay on top of how your performance is stacking up against your plan, helping you react faster and make smart changes to your plan. With Opstarts Actuals, you’ll always have a clear picture of your runway and cash outlook.

After entering actuals, you can view your plan automatically updated with the actuals:Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 2.49.34 PM

For more details on actuals entry and display, see our actuals release announcement.

This initial actuals release includes a basic interface to easily enter expense and revenue values for any Opstarts plan items, and actuals views in the Overview screen. Upcoming releases will include:

  • Automated actuals import from Stripe and other data sources
  • Detailed actuals vs plan views in other screens
  • Actuals for various non-cash parameters
  • Actuals-based SaaS and growth metrics
  • Actuals reports

All accounts will get a two-week trial of the new actuals functionality. Actuals functionality is included in Opstarts Basic and higher subscription tiers.

We’re really excited about this improved actuals functionality and the additional features on the way. We’ll have a follow-up to this post with suggestions on how to best take advantage of actuals functionality by making smart changes to your plan every month.

Please let us know what you think of these new features, and how we can make them even better for you. As always, please follow us on Twitter for all the latest Opstarts updates!
