Business Forecasting Software Helps You Make Better Business Decisions

Achieve better results when estimating future profitability by using valuable business intelligence data your restaurant is already collecting. Forecasting software gives insight into collected data, allowing you to build a better business model.

Forget Complicated Spreadsheets, Focus on Simple Forecast Reports

Not only does business intelligence forecasting software turn your collected data into insightful information, allowing you to build a better business model, but the software also helps you manage multiple restaurant locations in one convenient platform, so you always have access to accurate business intelligence data.

Managing a restaurant often involves many spreadsheets to track important business intelligence forecasting data related to employee scheduling, inventory, and purchasing. These spreadsheets can be difficult to create and impossible to find as time goes by. Much of the details tend to be lost in the shuffle and are never used for the good of the restaurant. The good news is that you no longer have to do business this way. By using Zip Reporting and Zip Forecast sales forecasting software, you can eliminate the saved spreadsheets and focus more on leading a productive, profitable team.

Zip Reporting streamlines your reporting process so that you get a simple, but detailed look at how your business is operating. All information in the reports, generated by the business forecasting software, is produced in real-time, so details are accurate and available when you need them. Other benefits of using our business forecasting software are included below.
