Billing - Revenue Forecast

Revenue Forecasting provides a process for forecasting the spread of expected revenue for an unlimited number of periods into the future.

The forecast is a snapshot for a particular Revenue Forecasting Period, which can be updated as required until the period is closed.

Typically, at the beginning of the Period Project Managers would forecast the future revenue they expect on their jobs. At the end of the month, once all invoicing has been done, this can be compared to see whether or not matches the forecasted revenue and make amendments on the next Revenue Forecast Period if necessary.

This grid behaves similar to a spreadsheet, so you can copy and paste several cells at a time.
