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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For a few dollars a month you'll be prepared to capitalize on business demand.
