I have enjoyed the product for many years and as always they have created a great product and upgrade. Also appreciate the added in box perks. Helps with many subjects; marketing.
I have been a fan of paloalto since 1998. Those days teh scope was different for me. Although i live in another country altogether, the plans and wealth of samples in this software are priceless. The only thing that sort of bugs me is that they stopped building newer versions for the mac.But no matter i use paralells desktop and the software runs great.
You have to have some financial background to set up some of it but it formats everything. You input the data and it spits out a stellar business plan.

This product is very easy to use and is worth every penny. They give what they promise.
It helped me with the formalization of the thought process to building a business plan. It is missing a critical tool for building an organizational chart. While it appears to be used for generating organizational capital or bank loans, it is helpful even if this is not the need. I also bought the marketing plan pro which was much more helpful to me as an orgainizational plan.

Bpp 2006 ran fine on xp for me. I transferred it to my new laptop with vista and could not run it. When i tried to start it, the message ‘unexpected error, quitting’ kept coming up. I decided it wasn’t ready for vista so i upgraded to 2007. I spent a day with tech support through email trying to fix it. I ‘repaired’ it through control panel, uninstalled and reinstalled, ran as an administrator, updated windows, ran spybot and ad-aware. At least four clean installs and twice i ran palo alto’s diagnostic program. Maybe it’s my machine but i don’t think so – i’ve never had that error message before and i run everything from word to photoshop to vegas 7 video editing. So – try it before you buy it.
Excellent and shipped on time.
