    "this seems like it will be useful through the semester."

    January 29, 2013  |   By devonskeez

    Version: Ultimate Business Plan Starter 5.0.72

    Pros

    it could potentially help somebody that is trying hard to get their business off the ground and this seems like it will be a great stepping stool to put it together.

    Cons

    they have not made a save button, that can be a potential hazard knowing that you it will be nearly impossible for you to remember all your thoughts and ideas without being organized and not having anything saved.

    Summary



    Updated on Jan 29, 2013

    this business plan starter seems like its going to be very helpful in this class. Hopefully my guess is correct, but it seems like it worked for others pretty usefully.

    "Simple easy to use program... actually on your computer"

    January 21, 2013  |   By MJ_Hd

    Version: Ultimate Business Plan Starter 5.0.72

    Pros

    You don't have to be connected to the internet. Gives you preset regions to fill out with examples and writes everything properly for you!! Literally stupid-proof...

    Cons

    You guys don't make a financial planner yet!

    "Good but needs more."

    August 20, 2012  |   By HindsightTechnologies

    Version: Ultimate Business Plan Starter 5.0.72

    Pros

    I thought the basic information provided with each section was fine. Each section had the needed subsections available.

    Cons

    The financial section needs to bve set up with a spreadsheet instead of just text entry. That would make the financial numbers easier to deal with.

    "Very detail oriented, but missing financial section"

    March 23, 2012  |   By Dogbreath077

    Version: Ultimate Business Plan Starter 5.0.72

    Pros

    Thorough explanation of every section that you need to fill in, gives good examples. Lets you edit which sections are printed according to your needs. This is a good program for the beginner and for the expert.

    Cons

    No financial section. The novice will need to look elsewhere for this feature, but that's easy with the internet. Exporting the business plan to a printable file is not readily explained. I'm a techie so I exported it and printed it out with ease, even in XP. The features of Win 7 and Vista will easily export and print it though. If you need help with the exporting and printing, the key here is the format that it is using, and your exact printer to which you send it. The MS XPS document writer will print it out for you, and that is an integral part of the Windows operating system.

    Summary

    I like it very much, it is in perfect line with, and then some more, with a business plan class I took in college. It could use a financial section for the novice user. I'm glad I used it, and I'll keep using it as well as recommend it to others.

    "does not save your work when you press save"

    April 10, 2011  |   By randomrandomrandom

    Version: Ultimate Business Plan Starter 5.0.72

    Pros

    good in terms of understanding what is needed in a business plan.

    Cons

    has a save button that does not work in the free feature, however the only way i found out it did not work was after working on it for three hours, saving the document then opening it the next day only to find everything blank.

    "This is NOT free!"

    November 15, 2010  |   By ztl

    Version: Ultimate Business Plan Starter 5.0.72

    Pros

    NONE! Not free, not worth the bother.

    Cons

    Another company pretending to offer a free tool, but then asking for $99 to make it work!!! I wasted time on installing it and space on my PC

    Summary

    Obviously another one who don't know **** about business planning. Why bother? Is this the way to conduct business?

    Pros

    This is a great help to a small business person like me. I wasn't really sure where to start with writing my business plan -but now I'm on my way!!

    Cons

    Summary

    For the price you pay, you can't really ask for a better place to start when writing your business plan. Glad I've got it!
