The Wall Street Journal reviews Business Plan Pro

by mike

From Jessica Mintz’s review of Business Plan Pro for The Wall Street Journal:

“Software programs can take a lot of the guesswork out of writing a business plan. For instance, Business Plan Pro ($99.95), published by Palo Alto Software, Eugene, Ore., guides the user through the writing of each part of a business plan using lots of ‘wizards,’ or pages with simple questions that, once answered, move the plan forward.

The program easily creates spreadsheets, charts and graphs from numbers that are typed in. The plan can be converted into a Microsoft Word document or a PowerPoint presentation, complete with graphs and charts. The software also includes some basic market research, and more than 400 sample plans.”
