MIS DecisionWare Announces October Seminar Series That Showcases Solutions to Alleviate Stress From Budgeting Process

NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 11, 2002 -- Con Edison, Fuji, and Federated among Case Studies being Presented MIS DecisionWare, a leading provider of performance management and business intelligence software solutions, today announced the release of their "Scary to Simple" Budgeting Seminar program.

The seminars, taking place on October 23, 2002 and October 29, 2002 in New York and Philadelphia respectively, demonstrate alternate solutions for budgeting, planning and reporting.

"Ask any executive about budgeting and guaranteed their first complaint is time," said Anthony L. Politano, CEO of MIS DecisionWare. "Gathering and manipulating data takes so much time that by the time the data has been consolidated and analyzed, it is time to start all over again. Our budgeting seminars showcase a system for budgeting that not only cuts the budget cycle in half, but also simplifies the entire process."

MIS DecisionWare provides the platform that takes the budgeting process from scary to simple. Using a familiar Excel environment, the MIS DecisionWare budgeting process requires little or no learning curve. It eliminates the necessity for time-consuming updates with the ability to make changes to reports or rollups in seconds. It also provides advanced planning with built-in `what-if' and forecasting capabilities.

Five separate seminars will be offered on both October 23, 2002 and October 29, 2002. Each seminar will offer in-depth analysis of current budgeting trends, as well as strategies for managing and implementing existing financial data into a new budgeting system. Presenters include MIS DecisionWare CEO, Anthony Politano, and executives from Federated Logistics, ConEdison Development, Fuji Photofilm USA, Draeger Medical, and Heidelberger Calcium.

"In the current economy, budgets are on everyone's mind. But budgeting should not be an organization's main concern," continued Politano. "The MIS DecisionWare seminars will provide an environment in which organizations can alleviate budgeting stress and focus on what really matters."

All attendees will receive complimentary software and copies of the presented case studies. To register for a "Scary to Simple" Budgeting Seminar or to learn more about MIS DecisionWare, please visit: http://www.misdecisionware.info/
