Cascade screenshotCascade is the strategic planning, performance budgeting and performance reporting solution missing from your ERP. This innovative, web-based add-on to your existing budgeting and financial management systems builds on what you are already using, and turns all of it into a powerful Performance Management system. In both the strategic plan and the performance budget, link highest-level outcomes to outputs, to the day-to-day supporting activities – showing costs and strategies. At every level of the organization, track performance throughout the year with customizable scorecards, dashboards, dials, graphs, and reports. Use the analytical functions to compare and contrast performance trends. Cascade provides unparalleled transparency into program performance – actual results with costs, versus planned. It offers exceptional flexibility, with many truly unique features – including optional capabilities that you can turn on/off as needed. The result is a Performance Management/Budgeting system for your organization that is comprehensive, integrated, and exceptionally effective.

The Federal version of Cascade fully supports the requirements of GPRA, the GPRA Modernization Act, and OMB Circular-A-11.
