This topic outlines the scope the other versions of Exl-Plan which are more detailed than Exl-Plan Free.

Exl-Plan Basic is identical to Free but generates projections for five years instead of two.

Each of the other more powerful versions of Exl-Plan (Micro, Lite, Pro, Super, Super Plus, Ultra and Ultra Plus) comprise several integrated sub-models residing within the main model covering a three/five/seven year forecasting period as follows:

Detailed assumptions and projections for the initial 12 months (36 months for Ultra & Ultra Plus).
Annualized projections for the first year based on the 12-month projections (three years for Ultra & Ultra Plus).
Less detailed assumptions and projections for the initial 12 quarters along with projections for the first four quarters derived automatically from the 12-month projections (for third year for Ultra & Ultra Plus).
Annual projections for the initial three years based on the 12-quarter projections (for third-fourth-fifth years for Ultra & Ultra Plus).
Projections for a further two years based on simplified annual assumptions (Pro,  Super, Super Plus, Ultra & Ultra Plus versions).

Projected income statements, cashflows, balance sheets and ratio analyses are generated for each month, quarter and year. There is an opening balance sheet and a summary income statement for the year preceding the start of the projections. For example, if projections start in April 2007, an income statement (estimated or actual) for the year ending March 2007 can be entered for reference and comparison purposes.

Output from Exl-Plan can be printed or viewed on a computer screen. This includes the following:

Over 30 pro-forma reports containing assumptions, income statements, cashflow projections, balance sheets, performance reviews and summaries. 
Numerous charts showing key projections, ratios etc.
A twelve-page Textual Summary Report containing a summary of the projections in textual form with embedded values and tables.
