Ultimate Business Planner 4.0 has one of the industry’s most user friendly interfaces. Navigation through the business plan is self explanatory even for the fist time plan writer. The available sections are comprehensive and customizable so that the user can add relevant sections or ignore sections that don’t apply to their venture by unchecking on the print box in each section.

Instructions are comprehensive and easy to follow and sample text is provided at the click of a button. Images, Graphs and Summary Financial Analysis can be inserted into any section using simple buttons in the text editor. Finally, your plan can be published to PDF for secure sharing or exported into Microsoft Word and Excel to share with trusted sources for editing.

The financial projection program is easy to use without the need for advanced knowledge of accounting or finance. The only drawback here is that if you have highly complex financial projections there is no way to change the formulas to fit your needs. In addition, if you follow the program step by step you will complete the projections before you write the narrative. This approach is not suggested and is easy to circumvent by not following the steps in order. Plan first then project based on the data in your plan. For 95% of start-up businesses the projections will suite their needs.

The program is packed with small business resources available through the tool bar menu and launch in a new screen allowing you to research with out exiting your plan.

All in all felt that Ultimate Business Planner’s user friendliness, flexibility, value and comprehensiveness earned it our editors pick for 2007 in the business plan program category.

Highs: Interface, Plan Instructions, Financial Projections Made Easy, Value
Lows: “Locked-In” Projection Formulas, Projection Before Planning Approach
Bottom Line: Truly the Ultimate Program for Beginners
