Kate Lu presented on how Apliqo UX improved their budgeting process at the Cubewise EDU conference and here, she recaps her thoughts with Martin Winkler.
- TM1 is used heavily in Finance to handle balance sheet, profit and loss, general ledger, consolidation, budgeting, workforce planning, cost allocation and more
- Apliqo UX allowed tight control for users to input their budget back into TM1 on the web

- Setting up the interface on Apliqo UX didn’t require any new skillset due to its drag and drop functionality
- End user support requests to the development team have reduced
