Fast Setup

With Zip Forecast, you’ll be ready to start forecasting your staff on day 1. Easily import past sales data, set up a simple forecast matrix, and assign it to your site. Then generate your first forecast to project sales and forecast staff demands.

Forecast Sales and Transactions

Generate sales and transaction forecasts with a single click. Detailed forecasts allow you to drill down to 15-minute intervals ensuring pinpoint accuracy. Improve the accuracy of forecasts by importing at least 4 week of historical data (actuals). When used with Zip Schedules, these forecasts make business more predictable helping you reduce over and under labor scheduling.

Events-Based Forecasts

Anticipating increased demand because of a big event or maybe fewer sales because of bad weather? Zip Forecast makes it easy to adjust forecasts for upcoming weather and events. Sales and transactions can be edited at the day level and on 15-minute intervals.

Optimize Workforce Productivity

Need to know how many employees to schedule during any specific time slots? What about how many Cashiers, Supervisors, or any other position? With Zip Forecast you can generate daily staff forecasts on 15, 30 or 60-minute intervals. You can also eliminate over and under scheduling by forecasting how many staff members you need at each position throughout the day.

Site-Specific Forecasts

How you determine the number of staff to schedule on any given day may vary from site to site. That’s why we’ve made it easy to assign customized forecast matrices for each site. Make minor changes such as the number of staff or positions needed at different sales ranges and assign it to any site.

Labor Budgeting

Are you getting a clear picture of how much your labor will cost when you create schedules? When you use Zip Forecast with Zip Schedules, you can get labor costs under control by setting up your preferred labor percentage of sales to use as a guide during schedule creation.

Calendar View

We know that you don’t always want to see all the details, but rather just a way to view all of the day’s high-level statistics. Every time you come into the Zip Forecast application you will clearly see a calendar view displaying the forecasted sales, transactions and scheduled labor percentage for each day in the current month. In addition, you can view the weather forecast for each day and leave any notes.

POS Integration

Tired of manually entering data? Zip Forecast allows you to automatically feed actual sales data from your POS, which increases your operational efficiency. Eliminate time spent on manual entry and focus your efforts on other more important tasks.

Multi-Language Capabilities

Zip Forecast can be used in English, Spanish, Chinese, or French. Your managers can change the language at any time for optimal ease of use.
