Is this right for me?

Regular forecasting is essential for profitability and solvency in any business. Sage 50 Forecasting makes your forecasting process simple, allowing you to predict the impact of critical business decisions and make them complete confidence. Sage 50 Forecasting's integration with Sage 50 Accounts, double-entry data system and pre-installed formulae combine to produce figures you can trust. It lets you:

Create accurate reports with figures you can trust
No more setting up your own complex and inaccurate spreadsheets, simply use our pre-installed formulae. You can also re-forecast based on actual results while still leaving your original budgets intact, allowing you to track progress and identify opportunities.

Predict and monitor your cash flow
By forecasting your cash flow, you can quickly and easily predict your future financial status. This then allows you to capitalise on the situation or take preventative action well in advance.

See the impact of potential business decisions
You can experiment with different ‘What if?’ scenarios, without affecting your base data. So you can see how things like price rises, new ventures and expansion will impact on your business.

Make the most of exciting new business opportunities
By experimenting with business scenarios you’ll be given a risk-free view of the potential impact on your business, which will allow you to make the most of any new business opportunities that come along. For example, test out the impact of any business idea such as expansion, diversification, taking on new staff or adding new product lines.

Save hours creating professional reports
Because data can be taken directly from your Sage 50 Accounts or Microsoft® Excel, you’ll save yourself hours of data re-entry. You’ll also enjoy the flexibility of entering your own data if you choose
