Macintosh business plan app template and cloud based software for Apple Mac

Enables collaboration between Macs & PCs

For many years we offered a business planning app just for PC users, but we provided Word, Excel and a PowerPoint templates for Macintosh users which required you to use Office on your Mac.

(FYI, we started Business Power Tools on Macs!)

Anyway, since so many customers are starting and building businesses using Macs as well as collaborating with PC users, this cloud-based business planning system now enables cross-platform collaboration.

Whether you’re raising $5,000 to $50 million…

  • Tell a great story with organized facts and good numbers
  • Implement ideas that help you generate revenue from the beginning

We include lists, links, samples, ideas, anecdotes and lessons others have paid for dearly…

Sometimes it’s a bit irreverent, but you need to understand it like it is. (Only you will see them—they don’t print.) The financial models in BizPlanBuilder also include roll-over help on all key number-entry cells so you’ll know what to do.

“Very easy to learn and use… I’ve seen no other business plan package that comes close to what this one can do. Overall Rating: A+”
