Well hello there and welcome to Startup Savant’s Business Plan Pro Review where we’ll introduce you to their best features, show you inside their platform, and talk a bit about how they set themselves apart in the industry. It’s not really about better and worse, but which planning software is going to be most effective for you and your team. Deal? Let’s roll.
To begin this Business Plan Pro review we want to say without a doubt their decade of solid experience in business planning and the fact they’re trusted by well over 1 million entrepreneurs really shows. You’ll feel it in their supportive video-based business planning course, Tim Berry’s “Plan-As-You-Go Business Plan” ebook, their complimentary one-year subscription to Inc. magazine (super-neat) and more.
Unlike most of their competitors that group their services into three packages, Business Plan Pro stuck with a straightforward duo – Standard ($99.95) & Premier ($159.95).
That said, below is what we like to call their Wall of Features. To be frank, there’s a bit too many. It’s total data overload, especially for both newbie entrepreneurs and those who are just now beginning to dip into professional planning software.
Pretty intense right? So much for such a small investment. When you just focus on what separates the two plans it really helps put Premium in perspective, which it may turn out isn’t something you need right now. In fact, that right there is what we believe really sets Business Plan Pro apart – their sheer complexity.
Your average entrepreneur simply doesn’t have the time it’s going to take to utilize all those features, do they? Do you? In our humble opinion this platform caters more to medium-sized business and larger startups who have someone or a small team of people dedicated to the data.
Whether you’re ready for a platform like Business Plan Pro or need software that’s a bit less complex like LivePlan, what’s important is that you stop putting this off and make your move. A professional business plan doesn’t assure success, but it’s required when you start looking for funds and studies show they dramatically improve both management efficacy and inter-team collaboration. Thanks so much for reading our Business Plan Pro review and here’s to your success!
