Why QuickPlan®?

While there are other business plan software tools available on the market, only QuickPlan® is already researched and already written by a team dedicated to each specific Industry. Each QuickPlan® is created to answer the Small Business Administration's definition of a comprehensive business plan and what the SBA has determined to yield success in the Marketplace. Business Plans are about results and setting down the realistic goals to achieve those results.  QuickPlan® will take you beyond the focus of just raising the money to get your doors open, it will focus your attention on the details of your day to day operations in order to keep your doors open. Profitability is great,  but cash in the bank is better, and why it is so important to build, execute, and track the realized results of your plan. The goal behind every QuickPlan® is to give you the tools to create your own Investment Grade Business Plan. 

Four Great Reasons to buy QuickPlan® Business Plan Software Today! 

1.) Success in the Marketplace dictates an Operational Document a complete and  Comprehensive Plan! 

  • The number one cause of business failure in the United States is poor planning. A recent study by Dr. Stephen Perry of Gardner-Webb University concluded that "...very little formal planning goes on in U.S. small businesses; however, non-failed firms do more planning than similar failed firms, (Bankrupt) did prior to failure. Simply put, businesses that do not plan have a very high probability of failure and the more you plan the more successful your venture is likely to be.

  • Whether you are just getting started, expanding your current business, or establishing the current value of your business in order to sell, a business plan will establish the value that your business has or will have in the future. 

2.) Time is money! 

  • It is estimated to take well over 200 hours of research and  preparation to write a comprehensive business plan for any Industry. Imagine the difference between starting from scratch and sitting down to edit an already written and already researched plan for your Industry. QuickPlan® is as easy as 1-2-3, just fill in your financial assumptions , edit the text files, and print and insert your plan into the already indexed professional presentation binder. 

3.) No new software to learn! 

  • QuickPlan® is compatible with the Word Processor, we recommend MicroSoft® Word, and the Spreadsheet program, Microsoft®  Excel 6.0 or higher required ,  that you probably already have. Just edit the text to fit your scenario, and plug in your numbers over the sample plan numbers in your spreadsheet program. No wasted time learning a new software program making it easy for you to quickly edit and present your plan in the QuickPlan® already indexed presentation binder.

4.) Constantly up to date.

  • All QuickPlan®s are constantly updated,  so you can always count on the plan to be up to date when you purchase your plan!

EMAIL ME A REVIEW WORKBOOK Just tell us which Industry Program you would like to review and we will have it right over to you.

How detailed and accurate are the financial projections generated by the QuickPlan® "Big Picture " financial matrix for each different plan? 

Quickplan®s' "Big Picture" matrix is custom designed for each separate Industry to answer the detailed differences generated by each Industry and to  make generating your financial projections a simple but comprehensive process. For instance, QuickPlan® Restaurant will take you through a series of breakfast, lunch and dinner revenue calculators prompting you for the number of seats in your restaurant, your contemplated average seat turnover during the day for each, and the average ticket that you will charge for each meal. QuickPlan® Salon on the other hand will take you through an actual menu of Salon and Day Spa services that would be performed on a daily basis to generate your revenue assumptions. You need only to fill in the blanks and the "Big Picture" will generate five years of month to month Operating budgets, Income Statements, Balance Sheets, Cash Flow Analysis( Every Receipt vs. every Disbursement), Operating Ratio Analysis, five year summaries of each set of statements a detailed 5 year month to month break even analysis and even an auto-generated Use of Proceeds statement. Do to the size and detail built into each QuickPlan® "Big Picture" matrix, all QuickPlan® "Big Picture" financial matrixes are thoroughly audited before release.

Why is a QuickPlan® so detailed,  I was told that I could get by with just a few pages? In 1996 QuickPlan® was created and introduced the first Industry specific business planning software based upon the Small Business Administrations' outline of the business plan standard that they list on their website. " The importance of a comprehensive, thoughtful business plan cannot be overemphasized. Much hinges on it: outside funding, credit from suppliers, management of your operation and finances, promotion and marketing of your business, and achievement of your goals and objectives". In short the devil is in the details and the details in any business model can make or break your endeavor. QuickPlan® is dedicated to taking you through the Business Plan exercise that you need to accomplish in order to become a successful operator and exceed the SBA's expectations.  

" I am not very good with numbers and I know that I am going to need help in understanding what they mean...will I be able to get help"?......Absolutely, toll free technical support is 7 days a week from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm and if you would like us to review your numbers with you once you have finished them you can attach the matrix to an email and send it to us at support@quickplan.com. Just include your phone number and we will call you back directly to handle any questions you may have and even review them with you, so that you know you filled in everything correctly.
