Sage Financial Forecasting

Help please. I consider myself an Excel guru enjoying Pivot & Lookup Tables, Concatenate, to park nominal ledger coded entries over a number of years into P&L month by month. It took a lot to persaude me to get Sage Financial Forecasting which has saved me masses of time entering the effects of loans, VAT, factoring etc.

Before I renew the software for the 3rd time can anyone suggest an alternative / improvement.
