PRO:SPANS is a user-friendly and highly automated computerized
application and training SYSTEM that provides the user with the
power and "know-how" to maximize the FINANCIAL gains in virtually any
circumstance or project.

THE SYSTEM INCLUDES SIX MAJOR INTEGRATED PROGRAMS WHICH YIELD
EXCEPTIONAL REWARDS FOR THOSE INVOLVED IN PROJECTS SUCH AS:

þ Sales / Marketing þ Procurement þ Training þ Project Management
þ Financial Justification, Analysis and Consulting þ Facilities
Management þ Loan Approvals þ Maintenance þ Strategic Planning
þ Leasing þ Etc.

PRO:SPANS provides the capacity to enter, for both You and the Other
Party, the important information on up to 99 issues per project, e.g.,
for each issue possible Workform field entries include: Value, Importance,
Authority Limit, Expected Settlement, Initial Offer, Expected Net,
Actual Net, etc.

All entry data can be AUTOMATICALLY sorted and documented. This
provides critical information needed to develop and implement the
STRATEGY and TACTICS that will MAXIMIZE financial gains for the
user. In addition, a special on-line spread-sheet (press `F4')
automatically maintains your current financial totals at all times!

THOROUGH PREPARATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS! Proficient negotiators
focus on capturing the critical advantages that spring from
detailed, organized planning and implementation. They identify and
analyze the values, needs, interests, concerns, etc. associated with
each issue from the position of all parties involved. They then
systematically develop and execute the most advantageous strategy
and tactics possible.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT THE PRO:SPANS SYSTEM
ÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ

HOW CAN I BENEFIT?
PRO:SPANS empowers its user to make the decisions that will
MAXIMIZE the rewards available in virtually any type of Selling,
Buying, Negotiating or Financial Decision Making project.

A major system feature is the ability to EFFICIENTLY develop
and document the important considerations of each of up to
ninety-nine issues per project in a consistent and organized
manner. From this data, highly automated and integrated programs
are available to assist the user in achieving his/her objective
of MAXIMIZING financial rewards.

In addition, the PRO:SPANS System includes easy-to-follow
training and reference manuals specifically designed to provide
the user with the professional "know-how" required.

IS THE PRO:SPANS SYSTEM FLEXIBLE?
YES, in fact, the extent to which issue field data is entered and
documented is entirely up to the user. Even partial application of
the system on a few of your key issues will result in significant
gains. However, the negotiation power generated, and the financial
gains yielded, will normally be in direct proportion to the extent
that the features provided by PRO:SPANS are utilized.

IS IT DIFFICULT TO LEARN TO USE THE PRO:SPANS SYSTEM?
No. PRO:SPANS is a complete application and training / reference
system. No special prior training or experience is required.

The user operating procedures are exceptionally clear and
straight-forward. PRO:SPANS is highly automated, i.e., only basic
entry data from the user is required. In addition, extensive help
screens and documentation manuals are provided. Of course, a bit of
initial study and "hands-on" user experiende is required, - -
however, the learning curve is less than that required for many
common programs, e.g., a wordprocessor.


HOW WILL I UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE EACH DATA ENTRY FIELD?
Simply press the `F1' key to view a help window for each data entry
field - - or refer to the PRO:SPANS Supporting Materials Manual for
additional information on each step.


WHAT IS THE BASIC PRO:SPANS USER SEQUENCE?

þ Enter the Project Name.

þ Create Issues, i.e., for each issue, enter an Issue Number,
designate whether you are a Buyer or Seller and a brief issue
description for each issue.

þ Enter issue data for You and the Other Party in the PRO:SPANS Workform.

þ Press `F4' to view a current total financial status report.

þ Sort and study issue data to develop Strategy and Tactics.


CAN I DOCUMENT THE PRO:SPANS ENTRY DATA?
Yes. Via dbXCEL, INTAC's unique interfacing program, documentation
may be easily created by one or all of the following three method:
(Complex computer commands are never required).

þ Press `F5' to create, view and edit PROJECT NOTES.

þ Press `F6' to create, view and edit ISSUE NOTES.

þ Press `F7' to create, view and edit detailed documentation at
the Project, Issue Number or each Field Entry Position, i.e.,
via a spread-sheet, wordprocessor, or the PRO:FIN and PRO:BAR
programs.

WHAT IS PRO:FIN?
PRO:FIN is a major INTAC computerized financial analysis and
justification system that AUTOMATICALLY determines, from up to 50
alternatives per project, the course of action that will MAXIMIZE the
project's financial gains in virtually any circumstance, including Buy
vs. Lease analysis.

PRO:FIN automatically applies the impact of any taxes, depreciation,
salvage value, etc., then uses the INCREMENTAL Return On Investment
(ROI) and the Net Present Value methods to determine the investment
alternative that will MAXIMIZE the available financial rewards.


WHAT IS PRO:BAR?
PRO:BAR is a special INTAC computerized program that graphically
displays the important negotiation positions of both the Seller and the
Buyer. The range of the POTENTIAL settlement range (if any) and the
EXPECTED settlement range is graphically highlighted. The graphic
information guides the user in developing an effective strategy
to MAXIMIZE his/her financial gains.

CAN I DO A "WHAT IF" ANALYSIS USING PRO:SPANS, PRO:FIN and PRO:BAR?
Yes, all three programs are designed to to AUTOMATICALLY determine
the financial impact of changes in the entry data.


WHAT IS MEANT BY THE TERM: "MAXIMIZING FINANCIAL GAINS" ?
Projects may have several valid alternatives that would be
financially rewarding. However, selecting an alternative
simply because it has a favorable or even highest Return On
Investment is often very costly, i.e., when compared to
identifying and implementing a more rewarding alternative that
would MAXIMIZE financial gains.

Therefore, the unique ability of PRO:SPANS, PRO:FIN and PRO:BAR to
AUTOMATICALLY identify the alternative decision that will maximize
financial gains is an exceptionally valuable feature.

GREATLY INCREASE REWARDS VIA NEGOTIATION:
Highly significant financial gains spring from increased
negotiation power. The PRO:SPANS System is designed to, via its
efficient preparation, execution and implementation features,
provides the "know-how" and power to maximize financial gains.

INCREASE SALES REVENUE:
The ability to demonstrate that your proposal will yield the
greatest financial gains for your clients is an exceptionally
effective method of closing the order. Failure to document the
financial advantages of your proposal, or to negotiate effectively,
often results in "no-sale", selling a lower priced item - - or the
sale being lost to a competitor.

To avoid lost or reduced sales, use the power of PRO:SPANS to
negotiate plus identify, present and defend the unique combination
of your products and options that will maximize financial
gains
- - i.e., demonstrate to your client how costly it would be
NOT to implement your proposal!!


LOWER PROCUREMENT COSTS:
In addition to negotiating advantageous terms, use the PRO:SPANS
System, including PRO:FIN and PRO:BAR, to identify the investments
in materials, equipment, tools, systems, etc., that will OPTIMIZE
reduction in procurement costs and to select the most advantageous
vender price / payment schedule.

DECREASE THE TOTAL COST, TIME AND EFFORT OF NEGOTIATION:
PRO:SPANS's systematic consistent methods and automated features
sharply reduce the time, cost and effort otherwise required to
professionally prepare for and execute the negotiation or to make
the right financial decision.

AVOID ADDITIONAL IMPLEMENTATION COSTS AND PROBLEMS:
Inadequately defined negotiated settlements often create problems
that result in significant unexpected implementation costs. Following
the PRO:SPANS System sharply reduces the likelihood of such costs.

TRAINING DEPARTMENTS:
PRO:SPANS is an excellent product to add to your list of valuable
training courses. Materials provide detailed instructor guides.

COST EFFECTIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT:
Use PRO:FIN to identify, present and defend the project alternative
that will MAXIMIZE FINANCIAL GAINS while meeting project objectives
within the constraints imposed by available resources.

COST EFFICIENT FACILITIES MANAGEMENT:
Use PRO:FIN to determine the most financially advantageous
alternatives to maintain, expand, upgrade, etc., the facilities and
equipment required to meet current and anticipated future demands.

LOAN APPROVALS:
Often a firm's future, even existence, is highly dependent of its

ability to borrow funds. Loan requests are frequently refused unless
the request includes documentation that the project(s) in which the
funds will be invested are financially sound. Use PRO:FIN to gain
higher levels of loan approvals by professionally justifying and
documenting the financial merits of your loan requests.

BUDGET APPROVAL:
Approval of requested budget funds largely hinges on how well the
requested funds are financially justified. Use PRO:FIN to document the
financial rewards of your budget requests.

GENERAL:
The most highly valued employees are "MANAGERS OF CHANGE".
Decisions involving change normally involve expenditure of funds in
order to meet the objectives of reducing costs and/or increasing
profits. Use the PRO:SPANS System to identify the expenditures that
will maximize the financial rewards from proposed changes and to
negotiate the most favorable terms possible.

HOW CAN I BENEFIT ?
PRO:FIN is both a computerized APPLICATION and REFERENCE /
TRAINING System on Financial Expenditure Justification and
Analysis. It provides you, year after year, with the "know-how"
and computerized power to MAXIMIZE the financial rewards from
the funds you have available to invest. - - Consider how
valuable PRO:FIN will be to the future of you and your firm and
you'll wonder how you've ever done without this powerful
decision making tool!

PRO:FIN uses both the Net Present Value (NPV) and Return On
Investment (ROI) methods to automatically analyze each
incrementally higher level of investment. This determines the
project alternative, if any that will MAXIMIZE financial gains!
created.

PRO:FIN saves you critical time and effort PLUS AUTOMATICALLY
GETS THE JOB DONE RIGHT! The system is highly automated, i.e., only
basic cash inflow/outflow for each alternative is required.
Application on any taxes, depreciation allowance and salvage value is
automatically included in the PRO:FIN analysis of up to 50
alternatives per project - - and the alternative that will MAXIMIZE
your financial gains is AUTOMATICALLY identified!

IS THE PRO:FIN SYSTEM EASY TO USE ?
Exceptional care has been taken to make using the PRO:FIN System
user-friendly. See below.

I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE SUBJECT OF FINANCIAL EXPENDITURE JUSTIFICATION.
ADEQUATE SUPPORT PROVIDED FOR ME TO EFFECTIVELY USE THE PRO:FIN SYSTEM ?
Yes, the user operation procedures are clear and straight-forward.
Several computerized examples are available with printouts provided in
the "Maximizing Financial Gains manual. These same examples are then
thoroughly reviewed in the FIN/SI instructional manuals. The system

(mandatory or non-mandatory), Tax Rate, Depreciation Type, etc.
(From this data PRO:FIN will automatically calculate a suggested
net salvage value, plus the depreciation schedule for each
alternative.)

þ Enter the data for each alternative, e.g., Alternative Name and
Description, Investment, and the annual cash outflows and
inflows.

þ THAT'S ALL THE ENTRY REQUIRED! PRO:FIN automatically performs a
complete incremental after-tax analysis, then displays a Project
Analysis Summary Screen listing the results of the analysis and
identifying the alternative that will maximize financial gains!

HOW WILL I UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE EACH DATA ENTRY FIELD ?
Simply press the `F1' key to view a help window for each data entry
field. Also, PRO:FIN will often automatically display an instruction
window when an incorrect data entry is attempted or when additional
considerations are required.

CAN I DOCUMENT THE DEVELOPMENT OF EACH DATA ENTRY FIELD ?
Yes, the ability to create and view documentation is a major PRO:FIN
feature. Documentation may be created stored and retrieved by three

Asking/Offering value, the Authority Limit value and the
Expected Settlement value ).

PRO:BAR then displays, to scale, a graphic screen which compares
the above known or estimated positions. The range of POTENTIAL
SETTLEMENT (if any) and the EXPECTED SETTLEMENT is highlighted.
This graphic information guides the user in modifying his/her
negotiation Buying or Selling strategy in order to maximize
financial gains.

NOTE: A single application of PRO:BAR will very often yield
benefits equal to many times the investment in the total
PRO:SPANS or PRO:FIN system!


CAN I PERFORM A "WHAT IF" analysis using PRO:FIN ?
Yes. First copy your project to another project name and change
any portion of the entry data. PRO:FIN will then automatically
recalculate the complete analysis based on the new entry data.

WHAT IS MEANT BY THE TERM "MAXIMIZING FINANCIAL GAINS" ?
Projects often have several alternatives that will both meet
requirements and yield an adequate return. However, implementing
an alternative simply because it has a favorable rate of return is
often very costly, i.e., when doing so excludes selecting a more
rewarding alternative that would MAXIMIZE your financial gains.

THEREFORE, PRO:FIN's ABILITY TO AUTOMATICALLY IDENTIFY THE
ALTERNATIVE THAT WILL MAXIMIZE FINANCIAL GAINS IS A UNIQUE
AND EXCEPTIONALLY ADVANTAGEOUS FEATURE !

CAN THE PRO:FIN SYSTEM BE USED IN COUNTRIES HAVING DIFFERENT TAX OR
DEPRECIATION SYSTEMS ?
Yes, any desired tax rate may be used. In addition, via
selecting the depreciation method of "Other", any desired
depreciation schedule may be specified.

INCREASE SALES:
Clearly, the ability to demonstrate that your proposal will yield the
greatest financial gains for your client is an exceptionally powerful
method of obtaining the order. Failure to document the financial
advantages of your proposal often results in "no sale", selling only
the lower priced item or the sale being lost to a competitor.

To avoid lost or reduced sales, use PRO:FIN to identify, present
and defend the unique combination of your products and options that
will maximize financial gains for your client, i.e., DEMONSTRATE TO
YOUR CLIENT HOW COSTLY IT WOULD BE NOT TO IMPLEMENT YOUR PROPOSAL !

LOWER PROCUREMENT COSTS:
Use PRO:FIN to work with vendors in identifying the investments in
equipment, methods, etc., that will optimize reduction in procurement
costs, to select the most advantageous pricing arrangement, etc.

TRAINING DEPARTMENTS:
PRO:SPANS is an excellent product to add to your list of valuable
training courses. Materials provide detailed instructor guides.

COST EFFECTIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT:
Use PRO:FIN to identify, present and defend the project alternative
that will maximize financial gains while meeting project objectives
within the constraints imposed by available resources, e.g.,
funds, time, space, etc.

EFFECTIVE FACILITIES MANAGEMENT:
Use PRO:FIN to determine the most financially advantageous
alternatives of providing, maintaining, upgrading, etc., the
facilities and equipment required to provide for current and
anticipated future demands.

BUDGET APPROVAL:
Often success in obtaining or approving requested budgeted funds
hinges on how well the requested funds are financially justified. Use
PRO:FIN to document the financial rewards resulting from approval of
your budgeted funds.

OBTAINING LOANS:
Often, a lender will not grant approval for business loans
until provided with documentation that the funds requested
are for financially justified project(s). Use PRO:FIN to
document the financial justification for your loan requests.

PRODUCT SELECTION:
Whether you are a Farmer, Store Manager or a Corporate Planner,
etc., it is important to select the product mix that will maximize
your financial gains within the existing constraints of space,
funds, workforce, etc. Use PRO:FIN to create several or many
possible product mix alternatives. The system will then
automatically determine the exact product mix alternative that will
maximize your financial gains.

GENERAL:
Managers and Key Employees are "Managers of Change". Decisions
involving change normally involve expenditure of funds in order to
meet the objectives of reducing costs and/or increasing profits. How
well such expenditures are financially justified is critical to an
organization's financial welfare. Use PRO:FIN to identify the changes
that will maximize financial gains.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
