Causal is a tool for performing calculations, visualising data, and communicating with numbers. It takes the good parts of spreadsheets and combine them with the good parts of programming, to make number-crunching fast, collaborative, and accessible to everyone. Everyone increasingly needs to use data and numbers to make decisions, and they are all (mostly) using spreadsheets to analyse numbers to make better decisions. This is what Causal is aiming to change by being the new spreadsheet for working with numbers. With Causal, you can build models 10x faster, connect them directly to your data, and share them with interactive dashboards and beautiful visuals.

Why this tool

  • Causal's formulas are in plain English— no cell references or obscure syntax — and a single Causal formula can do the work of 10s, and even 100s of spreadsheet formulas.
  • It can perform financial modelling, data viz, excel++, simulation, scenarios, communication, sensitivity analysis and calculate ROI.
  • Causal's built-in Scenarios feature lets you easily set up and compare what-if scenarios, and you can work with ranges ("5 to 10") to understand the full range of possible outcomes of your model.

What you can accomplish with this tool

  • Consolidate data from multiple sources + business entities: Pull financial data directly from your accounting system, and combine it with operational data from your CRM and analytics tools to build fully integrated models.
  • Automatically track the performance of your model against actual data, and against historical model versions. Easily compare historical model versions (e.g. Annual Budget) against actuals and current forecasts.
