Automated Sales Forecast and Demand Planning

Forecast future labor schedules and inventory levels with accuracy and ease.

Create business forecasts on your first day

Integrate with your point of sale

Integrations can be a pain but, we've made it super simple with Zip Forecast. Our POS integration tool walks you through the process in less than 10 minutes. When you are setup, you'll be able to generate your first sales and transactions forecast for the following week.

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. When used with Zip Schedules, these forecasts make business more predictable helping you reduce over and under labor scheduling. And, when used with Zip Inventory you'll always know when it's time to restock.

Tailor forecast settings for each site

Adjust forecasts for weather and events

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.

Customize staff forecast matrices for your unique store needs

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.

Improve profit margins by lowering labor costs

Know how much your labor is costing

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.

Optimize your work schedules

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.

"Our managers needed help with employee scheduling. We were using Excel and emailing the schedule out to our staff. But, when we tried Zip Schedules we realized how many hours we had been wasting with the timely task of handling shift changes and other employee requests. Now we schedule employees faster, with more accuracy and more flexibility. The free mobile apps have made our whole team feel more appreciated and more engaged. Our customers are more satisfied than ever before."

But wait, there's more...

"The business management apps offered by Hubworks has helped our concepts save time and money. Our managers and supervisors are happier because tasks that used to take hours every week have simplified with the mobility and visibility from their free mobile apps. Our profit margins are the best they've ever been with over a 2% reduction in food costs and 5% in labor. The business solutions offered by Hubworks deserve consideration by any restaurant, franchisees, or small businesses."

"Predictable inventory? That was a question our restaurants had no answer to until we found the Zip Inventory management system. Now we always know our real-time inventory levels and how much to order with suggested ordering. Going from our Excel Sheets and paper inventory count sheets to a technology solution worried us until we started seeing the savings roll in. We also use Zip Ordering for managing our supply ordering. It's a breeze! Download the app, import an order catalog and submit your order."

"Zip Schedules has totally eliminated the need for post-it notes laying all over my desk with time-off requests. It also helps us track hours/employees without having to use a calculator or set-up a formula in Excel. It’s the best $19/mo. this company spends!"

"Yes, I use the mobile app, I have it on my phone. We managed to go from having nothing to having a sophisticated system leveraging a platform everyone has already has in their pockets. I got both my restaurants started right away and it didn’t take me very long."
