About Rusty Luhring, Founder and CEO
I've been doing financial analysis and forecasting since the first financial modeling packages came on the market in the late 1970's.
I am a lifelong entrepreneur with a passion for financial modeling, problem solving, helping others succeed in business, and cycling. I'm fiercely independent, and could never get a real job or go to work for someone else. Luhring SurvivalWare is my current focus. I've tried to take the lessons learned from financial modeling for big corporations and apply the same technology to small and medium-sized companies who still have the need if not the expertise.
SurvivalWare is just entering its prime as an alternative to Excel for tackling complicated financial analysis and forecasting problems. Its pre-built corporate planning models coupled with a tool for mapping G/L accounts make it accessible to smaller companies lacking the expertise to build their own models. The ability to develop custom models, do consolidations, and automate data manipulation in the Pro version fills a void in the mid-market for companies with $5 million to $1 billion in annual revenues.
My latest venture is a website called www.DontHaveBoss.com where I hope to appeal to other entrepreneurs who find it impossible to work for someone else. The idea is to provide tools, tips, and encouragement to help them maintain their "Don't Have a Boss" status,
I've been "car-free" and have logged over 30,000 miles riding my bicycle the last 5 years. I just recently reached my goal of cycling 1,000 miles in one month (September, 2014). I'm pretty sure my household in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. has one of the lowest ratios of "cars in the driveway" to "driving age adults."
"It’s an off the shelf software package that was easily customized to my needs."
Greg Moore CEO - Workplace Integra
"I like its functionality. I liked the way it took data from many different types of sources and allowed me to pull it into one piece of software."
Terry Armstrong - Finance Professional
"Survivalware is already done. For Excel, you have to still go in and put in formulas and manipulate whereas with the Survivalware it’s just already done. Huge time savings."
Deb Drexel - Accounting and Business Manager
"For the cost, it’s got a lot of little bells and whistles and does exactly what any small business needs to do which is projecting where the cash is going and where it’s going to be at any certain point in time and that’s critical, obviously, if you need to borrow money from the banks."
Mike Wilkerson - CFO, Dominion Equipment Parts
"The support that I’ve gotten from SurvivalWare has been phenomenal."
JR Samples - Accountability Partners
"SurvivalWare allowed me to be able to look at the numbers and predict and do what ifs on a very quick basis to make decisions in my company so that I now have 12 months operating in the black instead of eight months operating in the black and four months at a loss."
Stan Touchstone - Kissimmee Valley Feed & Ranch Supply, Inc.
"The reason why the product is great is because Rusty has had an unbelievable amount of experience in analyzing financial data for all kinds of companies."
Hank Luhring - Founder & CEO, IssueTrak
