Unfortunately for Forecast and Budget Builder, it finds itself in the midst of powerful competitors in front of which it would be seen as a ridiculous software. We are talking competitors like Plan Guru, Adaptive Planning, NetSuite Financials, Budget Maestro, SAP Accounting, Deltek Vision and FinancialForce Accounting.
 
Forecast and Budget Builder is just not a match to any of the competitors listed above. It is a very simplistic software without cloud computing, multiple currency conversion, smartphone apps and integration of other online tools.
 
Forecast and Budget Builder can only be useful to an average Joe that needs to restrict himself to very basic forecasting. Its only strength is the fact that it is much more affordable.
