  • Customizable templates: We will have industry specific templates and Ballparq will enable the entrepreneur to form complex connections between assumptions through a simple user interface. The entrepreneur won’t need to be a financial engineer to test the unique interdependencies between activities, revenues, and costs within their business.
  • What-if analysis: Users can make side-by-side copies of their models and utilize built-in knobs and levers that adjust model parameters on the fly to do effective “What-if” analysis.
  • Secure Sharing: Ballparq will enable users to interactively share their models with others in a secure environment.
