Overall, I recommend this tool to anyone who is starting a business. Especially if you don't know where to find the best business plan template.

Pros
This is a complete SaaS solution for writing your business plan! It's amazing in that it has all the important questions already mapped out for you. If you've ever written a business plan, you know the hardest part is knowing which questions to ask. BizPlan makes that a snap, because it is all part of the templates they offer you. All the questions and tools are set up in an intuitive flow, that lets you answer the questions easily and in the right order. Once you have finished all the questions you will have a state of the art business plan. This tool is curated by some of the most experienced entrepreneurs, and has all the fixings of a reputable plan. Use it!

Cons
They limit the amount of plans you can have at one time. Honestly this is fine, because you should be focusing on one at a time anyways.

Eases the Process of Wrinng a Business Plan

Let's face it: It's not easy t write a business plan. Bizplan helps that process by asking the right questions and by helping you put together the right kind of information in one place so that you can go to it often for inspiration and for help in clarifying things as a business owner.

Pros
It writes the *right* questions, such as "Which problem are you trying to solve?" This allows an entrepreneur or a business owner to narrow their focus to solving specific problems for specific people. It's also comprehensive and hits on all aspects of starting and running a business such as financials (revenues, expenses, funding, and more), team, products, markets, goals, strategy, and customers. It has progress bars for various topics so you know what you have to work on and charts that visually shows projections, break-even etc.

Cons
A bit overwhelming to get it all together and do enough deep thinking in various aspects of starting and running a business. Sure, the process of starting and running a business itself is often overwhelming, and the best that the software like this can do it make it easier and less painful. And yet, somewhere, somehow, I think that it can get even better.

Great concept, great financial tools - ability to customise lacking

Review Source: Capterra

Conceptually I was really on board with the concept of business planning software, and I think there is a lot of potential for the product. Feedback: - Output of financial tools are incredible, really like the various views/breakdowns of financial forecasts - however, creating a financial model is a labour intensive process and getting to grips with the platform is slightly difficult on setup (e.g. the way team spend is setup and the inability to move employees between groups after creation; or do you include cost of sales on both the employee and the revenue model). - Business planning software was flawed for my use in two areas: 1) I didn't like the input methods. Given I had already created various incarnations of the business plan for competitions etc, I had pre-existing paragraphs of text I was looking to slot in which didn't really work (e.g. my team bios were paragraph based not bulleted). Similarly I felt that while the text only sections gave you the freedom to write in any format, the output wasn't aesthetically structured so there was no real benefit over using word (unless you needed help with the overall plan contents/structure). 2) Design is really important to me, and I didn't like the aesthetics of the ouput business plan. A quick fix for this would be to offer various themes/layouts (using the same core input data). Positively if you're starting from scratch with no prior knowledge, it gives a great guide as how to write a business plan. Given the level of detail required, and the financial modelling, you would expect users to have a relatively detailed understanding of business planning. Ultimately I would use BizPlan just for the financial forecasts - not for the business plan. Unfortunately I'm now looking solely into financial forecasting software, given the lack of functionality on the business plan side, and will be creating my business plan using a template from GraphicRiver. Would be happy to help in the future as it has the potential to be a great tool!

Pros
This is a great solution for writing your biz plan. I used this when starting my company and found the templates to be extremely helpful. The end result was a well put together plan that helped me launch!

Cons
The look of the plan was not great. Copying items from my other planning tools was not as simple as I had hoped.

Makes the daunting task of writing business plans (almost) fun!

Review Source: Capterra

The number of hours I've saved using Bizplan cannot even be counted.

Pros
The user interface for Bizplan turns boring business plan writing into a much more (almost) fun user experience. (I say almost because it's still a business plan, and writing is not my strong suit). Not only that, but the report it outputs makes you look like a pro with minimal effort.

Cons
I don't really have any constructive feedback in terms of improvements or things that I don't like about Bizplan.
