LivePlan is wonderful. The best part is how easy it is to make adjustments and quickly see how it impacts cash flow. For example, one client had a 1% DSCR (Debt Service Coverage Ratio) which was not good enough–I said she wants to aim for 1.2% so she changed her hourly rate and automatically all the financial projections updated. We could have spent hours recalculating in a spreadsheet.

LivePlan's impact on our center was undeniable. Both our long term counseling and our online counseling doubled and capital infusion tripled. Additionally, LivePlan has provided a tool to reach out to lenders and show them the value of sending their clients to the SBDC, increasing the bank referrals.

The utilization of LivePlan's software made it very easy to drill down to the core of the (business) plan in an impactful, one–page pitch. This was a great win for our center's clients.

LivePlan can really help small businesses get to the next level. [It] is all about helping them realize that goal. Anyone can have a great idea, but getting that idea across to a lender or investor is crucial. Entrepreneurs will be able to put together quality plans that will, without a doubt, help their businesses succeed in the long run.
