Vena is a powerful solution that leverages the flexibility and user-friendliness of MS Excel allowing for rolled up approvals, early-warning signs and user-friendly summary reporting.  Our budget development process is now fully automated with Budget Monitoring Reports now LIVE!!!

Four reports are now available in Vena, and comprehensive instruction manuals have been written to support your hands-on experience.  They can be accessed through the links below:
