G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business solutions review website, released its Summer 2019 Report. idu-Concept achieved Leader in the Budgeting and Forecasting Category and High Performer in the CPM Category, based on the responses of real users for each category, respectively.

The Budgeting and Forecasting Category is new to G2 Crowd, and to qualify for inclusion in this category, a product must meet a number of key requirements, including:

  • Comparing revenues and expenses estimates with actuals;
  • The ability to consolidate budgets from several departments;
  • Using what-if scenarios to forecast possible budget changes; and
  • Monitoring the performance of budgeting processes.

idu-Concept’s rich functionality ticks all these boxes and more, while remaining an extremely user-friendly toolset. With the IDU Cloud solution, companies can now also make use of world-class financial planning, reporting and analytics capabilities without large capital expenditure outlays. IDU Cloud harnesses the power, performance, security and scalability of the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform, and offers ease of use, rapid deployment and seamless data integration at an affordable price.

IDU achieved Leader and High Performer awards in the Summer 2019 Report by receiving positive reviews from verified users, compared to similar products in their category. For inclusion in the report a product must have received 10 or more reviews. IDU currently has 28 reviews.

“We are very proud to once again be included in the G2 Crowd Report, and to have received such high ratings from our customers, who are ultimately the driving force behind our success,” said Kevin Phillips, CEO of IDU.
