Crystal Ball

Perhaps the most powerful elements of the software, the crystal ball leverages the entire set of data in an easy-to-use scenario builder that allows you to view your projected financial results of almost any key business decision you’ll make in the future. Input the cost of any investment or change in business practice that affects one of the 8 key value drivers and receive the answer to these key questions:


Should we make the change?

This will tell you if the decision increases the value of your company.

Can we make the change?

This will tell you if you can afford to make the change. If both are yes, you’re improving the value of the company. Use the crystal ball to validate every key business decision on a weekly basis.


RealTime CEO software works for any type of business, of any size, in any industry. Raw data is sourced from your general ledger in the form of a traditional income statement and balance sheet. These are then mapped and uploaded via CSV import into RealTimeCEO
