Plans are constantly changing due to shifting priorities, fluctuations in top-down allocation, unexpected costs and more. Allocadia gives you the ability to preserve a record of how those plans have changed with the Snapshot feature. Seeing how your quarterly Plan is shaping up mid-way through the month and capturing what your plans were before fluctuations occurred ensures that you don’t lose data and provides insight into the planning process for your team.
