Have you always wanted to sit down and design a great budget spreadsheet that clearly explains IT spending? One that your clients will understand, complete with pretty graphs?

Here you go!

Clients want clearer and more predictable budgets. This will help their financial departments find tax write offs and adjust spend appropriately. However, they do not know what most of the line items are in their IT budget!

One of the major reasons that IT shops do not have budgets is because of a gap in knowledge. Engineers are not trained as accountants and vice versa.

This easy to use budget template bridges the gap by allowing a breakdown of IT costs to allow for more engaging conversations such as why managed infrastructure helps stabilize budgets!

This includes

  • Easy to use Excel Budget Template
  • Explanation of how to build a budget for your client
  • Explanation of forecasting and basics
