Enloop offers a variety of business plan creation packages to suit most budgets and required assistance. For Advanced and Professional users, the system combines a number of advanced automated systems that synchronise with one another so that changes in one area will impact on other areas, making it an accurate and time effective tool for producing business plans and monitoring your progress.
There are four main packages available. The free package allows minimum details to be included in one business plan. As with all the packages you will receive your business plan as a PDF file which you can alter. You will also receive an Enloop performance score and will be able to invite up to one other user to make changes to your plan. Multicurrency support is also available for free users, making this a generous option for anyone on a very tight budget. Meanwhile, paying members receive more detail and more perks, including the ability to include charts. The premium packages also allow you to use the AutoWrite and TextSync systems, which could be of great use.
In particular the AutoWrite and TextSync systems are worth consideration. These essentially allow you to take various templates and then insert your own information. As different elements change (say your profits go up or you change a policy) all areas of your plan will adjust to suit this change. When combined with ratio analysis tool and the report card feature, this makes for an impressive way to develop forecasts and to track how well they have been implemented. These systems also produce alerts, essentially letting you know when you have made an error, or whether your current system is going to work towards your objectives in the time span you planned.
With regard to costs, we felt that the prices charged by enLoop.com were very reasonable. The free package allows you to create one business plan, although you are restricted as to which features are available. If you are interested in the automated tracking and monitoring systems then you’ll need to upgrade, but even the most expensive package is fairly priced at just $24 a month (on an annual contract). You can also downgrade to the free service at any time you choose. As such we would recommend enloop to anyone who is looking to create a business plan, but especially to users who feel they would benefit from the automatic updates system, keeping their plans up to date and accurate over time.
If you need assistance then it is possible to send a message to the customer supports team. You can also write to them (if you feel the need), email them, make a call or check out their help and support section, which offers answers to most of the common questions they receive. This knowledge database is well organised and also includes a search option.
Overall, we felt that enLoop offered very good value for money and some great features that ought to help you keep track of your business plan and how likely you are to fulfil its claims, as well as producing decent business plans in the first place. This one comes highly recommended.
