Budget app research management low

A clear view on the essentials of research budgeting

Not curiosity, but complexity kills the cat when it comes to financially managing research projects. Every stage of scientific research has its own set of opportunities, finance challenges and stakeholders. Flexso successfully introduced the budget app. A cloud-based app that can be integrated with S/4 HANA on-premise, private or public cloud backend systems.

The challenge of collecting data in research management

Collecting and consolidating financial data is a challenge. Not only do project managers and finance departments have to collect, book and consolidate income and expenses into one report, research budgeting also requires regular alignment with all involved to be sure that all entries are appropriately booked.

A clear view on the essentials of research budgeting

Flexso’s budget app (available on SAP Store) gives you a clear view on the essentials of research budgeting: what are the losses and benefits? Are staff expenses on track? Timesheet entry toggles seamlessly between time-based or amount-based mode.
The result? As everybody is using the same tool for data entry and monitoring results, budgets stay always under control on every level.

With ease of use, we really mean easy

The app is appealing and user friendly, following SAP Fiori design guidelines for the look and feel. A financial wizard within the application guides users for setting up a budget for a new project. The app brings uniformity across all departments. Do you want to customize? The wizard is easily tailored to meet specific requirements for your research project management.

Simplified financial data input and tailor-made output

The budget app not only provides you with simplified financial data input, but it also enables you as well to have tailor-made output without the hassle of building specific reports over and over again starting from scratch. As Lotte Hermans, Flexso SAP Functional consultant tells: ‘Basically, the app enables you to produce reports in different formats, based on the same set of data. Whether you need a snapshot at a certain moment of the project, or the latest figures to produce a report for your stakeholders.’

End-to-end research management

The budget app is one of the applications especially developed by Flexso for research project management. But there is more: Our collection of apps offer you an end-to-end solution for managing your research projects within your organisation.
