Download Reports and Budgets to Excel

EFP has report templates that are ready for you to use. You can also create reports from scratch using its report wizard. One of the key advantages of EFP is the power of its report formatting. It is easy to use yet advanced making report formatting a breeze.

Machine learning Forecasts

EFP´s budget prediction is powered by machine learning. With just a simple click of a button, you can create predictions based on various models such as 36 months actuals. EFP looks at prior data and matches which machine learning model is most suitable to that data set. You can even see which model is used and why and then use that prediction as the user´s first forecast draft for finetuning. This drastically improves your way of budgeting.

Is EFP the right solution for you?

Does SaaS EFP only work with SaaS ERP systems?

No. SaaS EFP (whether basic, Standard or The Works) work for ERP systems deployed in the cloud or on premises. You do NOT need to have on premises EFP if you have your ERP system on premises. In fact, we strongly recommend SaaS EFP products because it contains more capabilities than the on premises one.



How does EFP work?

EFP pulls data directly from your ERP system (whether deployed in the cloud or on-premises). This means that EFP initially follows the account mapping in your general ledger to start with. If you want to change how certain items are mapped, you have the power to do this within EFP while leaving your ERP data intact to ensure GL integrity.


Is EFP complex to use and implement?

EFP is a deep and feature-packed tool. It is known to solve complex challenges in finance but just because it can handle complex issues with ease does not mean it can solve only complex issues. EFP is used by finance customers across industries for issues ranging from very simple to highly complex. EFP strikes a balance between ease of use and deep capabilities.


When it comes to implementation, EFP has adopted measures to streamline the implementation of EFP bringing down the number of hours needed to implement EFP ranging from 20 hours – 100 hours depending on scope.


“I wanted to be able to measure customers on a global consolidated level such as sales data, order data, and gross profit and margin not only in a single country. I wanted to measure KPIs such as quality, delivery positions, and number of customer visits among others. All these are possible to measure with Epicor Financial Planner today."

Did you know that there is a growing number of customers shifting to EFP for reporting and budgeting? The reason they shift to EFP are as follows:

  • Customers realized after a while that EFP´s web and Excel reporting capabilities are superior to that of its competitors. Creating reports and formatting reports is quick and easy with EFP.
  • Dashboards in EFP require no coding at all to set up keeping true to its promise of a non-technical solution for finance and business users.
  • The budgeting features of EFP are deeper and more sophisticated than the alternatives in the market. Capabilities like allocations, machine learning-powered budget predictions, multi-level approval, scenario management, FX and HR budgeting, commissions calculations, consolidation features, and support for IFRS and GAAP are a few of the capabilities in EFP not found in other solutions.
  • Many solutions in the market claim to be easier and faster to implement than EFP which in some cases might be true. However, once the customer starts using them, they quickly stumble into a functionality limitation whereby they cannot do many things they would have wanted to do in terms of reporting and budgeting or consolidation. In EFP, hours are streamlined for implementation and the ability to scale is truly wide and far-reaching because of its modular approach.
  • Customers with high volume of data suffer from performance lag with other products whereas this is not a problem with EFP. EFP is designed from the ground up to handle transactional data processing making its performance superior to that of its competitors.

Words from our CEO

“EFP is known internally within Epicor as the budgeting and planning solution of choice for on-premises and cloud ERP deployments, but I think many people do not realize that EFP is so much more than that. From the get-go, EFP was designed to be a full CPM solution. This means that we have been in the financial reporting arena for a very long time, even though we have never actively marketed it as such. We have live customers using EFP as a reporting solution for years, and we have learned many things in the last 20 years on improving stability and performance.


Being in the reporting arena for over two decades puts us at a distinct advantage because this area is harder than it seems. Supporting high volumes of data, supporting transactional data processing, and coming forward with smart and automated financial reports are easier said than done. All these being part of EFP´s area of expertise ensures that we can deliver a financial reporting solution with a high degree of confidence that it will fulfill its promises. I am glad we can finally market EFP as a robust reporting tool. This is something we have wanted to do for a very long time. I´m excited we are finally here. Please avail of our 30-day trial and see for yourself. There is no better judge for this product than you.”
