The Forecast module is a Fishbowl Plugin that becomes part of the Fishbowl user interface. This is a bit different than separate solutions provided by Fishbowl and other companies. There’s nothing you have to download or even install. All you simply have to do is get the right credentials and then activate the Forecast module through Fishbowl’s Plugin module.
Predicting the future is simple with the Fishbowl Forecast Module
The Forecast module uses sales numbers, patterns and other information across a certain time period to predict upcoming sales, quantities, and costs. It then presents all of this data through a number of filters and chart types.
Here are the features you’ll find in this module:
- As noted above, you don’t have to download anything. You simply have to enter the proper information into the interface to activate the already-installed Forecast module.
- Numerous filters are available to limit the data to specific sales, quantities, costs, parts, and location groups.
- In addition, you can select the period of time you want to use as a reference to base the predicted sales information on. You can also select the future period of time you want to extend the forecasting into.
- Forecasted data can be displayed in three main types of charts: line graph, accumulation, or scatter plot. You can select the one that will show the data in the most intuitive way for your needs.
