About IDU

IDU makes budgeting, forecasting, performance management and reporting tools to simplify financial management. Our flagship product, idu-Concept, provides easy, effective budgeting and financial reporting for medium-sized to large businesses. idu-Concept integrates easily with ERP software, but unlike more cumbersome offerings, idu-Concept can be implemented quickly, requires little or no ongoing consulting fees and reduces budgeting cycles from months to weeks. Our company is owner-managed, and still led by its three founding members.

Our Vision

  • We aim to be the first choice for delivering accessible, user friendly budgeting, forecasting and reporting software solutions to users at all levels in the business.
  • To significantly reduce budget, forecasting and reporting turnaround times.
  • To provide strategic financial planning software that is free of ongoing consulting support.
  • To empower non-financial managers, giving them ownership of their budgets by promoting transparency and ultimately leading to greater accountability.
  • To deliver a cost-effective, superior business solution.
