  • PC Magazine: "Review of Projected Financials 3.5: Find Out if That Business Venture Will Fly" (June 21, 2004):

    • Editor's rating: 4 out of 5.
    • "Excel is, undeniably, a masterful program. But building business financials in it requires skill. Projected Financials 3.5 makes it possible for businesspeople who don't have CPA after their names to build integrated, multiyear income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements, and create a variety of what-if scenarios."
    • "Projected Financial's new Scenario Editor provides a simple, powerful way to run what-if analyses. For example, you can instantly see how different pricing tactics might ripple through to the bottom line. The application's other strength lies in its financial reports, which include balance sheets and cash flow projections (the latter up to ten years, unusual in a standalone financial program).
    • "There are other alternatives to building your own financials painstakingly in Excel. Several Excel add-ons contain a subset of the features found in Projected Financials... But we've not seen Projected Financials' unique set of intelligent, flexible tools anywhere else."

  • Boston Business Journal: "Corporate Notes: Birnbach Communications Adds Two New Tech Clients" (April 9, 2004)
  • Small Business Computing: "Financial Forecasts You Can Take To The Bank" (April 6, 2004):
    • "If you've ever had to apply for a small businesses loan or make a presentation to a venture capital group, you know securing the funds depends on how accurate your financial forecast is. How many times have you had to go back to the drawing board and revise your financial forecast in order gain access to working capital? There is a faster, easier and more accurate way to make your financial modeling foolproof.
    • "Whitebirch Software designs and develops applications that help its customers create sophisticated financial models and long-term forecasts that go beyond the scope of traditional spreadsheets and standard budgeting software. The company recently released a major upgrade to its flagship financial modeling program, Projected Financials.
    • "The program prepares financial modeling and scenario analysis in a fraction of the time that traditional spreadsheets can provide. In addition to building comprehensive financial models, Projected Financials simplifies creating, comparing, and documenting "what-if" scenarios. Michael Hoffmann, Whitebirch Software president and chief executive officer, said Projected Financials is a way for small- and mid-sized businesses to avoid the trappings of using Excel for financial modeling...
    • "Nowadays there are various accounting applications and financial services available to small business. While many of these programs and providers are adept at totaling column after column of hard data, few are capable of taking the next step toward forecasting financials two or three or even 10 years down the road. If you want a clear picture of your company's financial future, take a look at Projected Financials."
