The B-Plan Cruiser™ will analyze any business and prepare a business plan.

The B-Plan Cruiser™ is an integration of two systems working together to help manage a business. Except for entering your information on the various business plan pages, you only complete one Master Data Entry worksheet to create an analysis that will contribute its parts to the business plan. 

The B-Plan Cruiser™ is divided into two sections:
1) The Business Analysis Section
2) The Business Plan Creator Section

The Business Analysis Section:
The Cruiser will quickly analyze the overall health status of any business. It will contribute its financial sheets to the business plan.

The Business Plan Creator Section:
Too often business plans are created and find their way to a shelf and never consulted again. The Cruiser is designed to be an ongoing management tool. The Cruiser will create for you a world class business plan suitable for any size business, whether startup or ongoing.

The good news is that after setting up the Cruiser the first time, updating is all that is required to make it a real-time, ongoing tool for decision making.
 

Features:
Full open architecture allows you to customize to suit your needs.

        Business Plan Template for Startup Business

Business Analysis Screen Shots
There is a Master Control Central worksheet.

These sheets has been set up to make starting and reaping the benefits of your analysis product as simple as possible.

Just click on the system that you need and it will start automatically.












 

Some Additional™ Examples

Financial Ratios
This worksheet will help both you and any potential outside investor compare your business's performance from one year to the next (for example, has gross profit grown or declined between years one and five?) and against other similar businesses (for example, does your business give as good a return on investment as others?).

The ratios can also be used as an aid in making future financial projections. For example, if you believe that it is prudent to hold the equivalent of a month's sales in inventory, once you have made the sales forecast for future years, the projections for inventory in the balance sheet follow logically.

Optimal Performance Analysis
Several numbers on this page may appear illogical since maximum percentages were used in Sales and minimum percentages were used in Expenses.

Its sole purpose is to show how, if everything comes together, the results of maximum efficiency already performed in other time periods.
Market Value Analysis
There is no single best method for determining a business's worth since each business sale is unique.

The wisest approach is to compute a company’s value using several techniques and then choose the one
that makes the most sense.

There are three techniques and several variations for determining the value of a business:
1) The balance sheet technique.
2) The earnings approach.
3) The market (or price/earnings) approach .

Break-Even Analysis
The Break-Even point can be easily computed by dividing Fixed Expenses by Fixed Expenses plus Profit: FE/(FE+P).

You will note that the date of Break-Even has also been computed by multiplying 365 times the Break-Even percentage. In the BE Chart, placing your pointer on the bisection of Sales and Expenses will also indicate the month and approximate date.

General Trend Assessment Analysis
Trend assessments are vital to discovering  the overall health of a business.

This sheet yields 8 periods of trends in Net Sales, Cost of Goods Sold, Gross Profit, Total expenses, Operating income, EBIT, Net Income After, Current Assets, Inventory. Total Assets, Current Liabilities, Non-current Liabilities, Total Liabilities, Retained earnings, Equity, and
Z-Score:
     Publicly Held Firm
     Privately Held Firm
    Non-Manufacturing
And, much more . . .

The Budget Scenario Analysis
This analysis helps managers evaluate the impact of different business scenarios on key budget drivers that generate revenue. You can use them to enter data about the best-case, average-case, and worst-case scenarios on annual revenue. Find out whether the revenue assumptions associated with your annual budget are reasonable or whether mitigating strategies should be implemented to limit risks associated with the worst-case scenario.

Use this analysis as part of your annual budgeting cycle after you've completed the initial draft of your budget.
Headcount Analysis
The Headcount and Payroll Planning worksheet set is designed to help finance, human resources, and compensation teams forecast and plan annual headcount and total compensation. This set of worksheets helps you forecast compensation expense based on the predicted number of staff each quarter within each department. It also accounts for key expenses such as fringe benefits and variable pay.

Product Profitability Analysis
This  analysis helps finance, product management, and operations teams assess the overall profitability of specific products quarterly and annually. By conducting a product profitability analysis, your company can understand the direct and indirect costs associated with developing and offering a specific product and assess a product's contribution to the bottom line.
Marketing Budget Plan
The Marketing Budget Plan worksheet lays out a list of possible expenditures for you to consider when creating your marketing budget. You can use all the categories in the template, or only a few, or you can add categories of your own.

This worksheet makes it easy for you to create a budget plan, because formulas and other worksheet features are already set up for you. When you enter or change quantities and prices, the totals are automatically adjusted.

Dashboards
There are 4 dashboards:
   1) Financial Operations Dashboard
   2) Revenue Operations Dashboard
   3) Key Financial Indicators Dashboard
   4) Key Financial Ratios Dashboard

All serving to view key indicators at a glance.

All of these mini-charts can be drag copied or linked to a PowerPoint presentation, or any suitable MS Office or compatible application.
