I’m a bit of a math geek so I like all things mathematical. Understand that the practical business person doesn’t have time to play around with a lot of this stuff but in this case there is value.
Wolfam Alpha is a highly capable technical tool. It continuously broadens its scope and Melanie Pinola talks about personal finance and stock analysis. I’m expanding her recommendations to share that it will help you in loan financing, project NPV or IRR or payback. It can help with conversion tools and much more. When it’s time to do strategic planning for your small business, decide when and how much financing then this tool will be a big help.
