Using TimeForge to Forecast Sales

The TimeForge Sales feature is a powerful and easy-to-use analytics tool that can help you keep track of manager projections, actual sales numbers, and forecast sales using system generated projections that are based on your sales history. Sales numbers can be referenced and viewed on employee schedules, and analyzed using the Sales Analytics tool – a simple solution to ensure that complex schedule forecasts are kept in check.

Note: Before you can begin to forecast sales, you will first need to set up a sales category. After that, you can forecast sales with just a few clicks of the mouse!

Go to the “System Forecasts” page.

  • Log in
  • Hover over the “Sales” tab
  • Click on “System Forecasts”

Select your sales category and date you want to forecast.

You can choose any sales category that you created and any date to forecast sales. A Sales Category can include:

  •  Gross Sales
  •  Net Sales
  •  Customer counts, plates, or covers
  •  Inventory Items, such as khaki pants sold, steaks to prepare, lobster sales, or booked hotel rooms
  •  Any other number that makes sense for your business!

Note: You can create and maintain as many Sales Categories as you would like – there are no limits.

Click “Show” to forecast your sales.

Forecast sales.

TimeForge will forecast sales for you based on your previous business. You can see daily totals, daily totals broken down by hour or 15 minute increments, or a weekly forecast.

Click “Finished” when you’re done.

The Timeforge scheduling system has not only increased our efficiency tremendously; decreased the errors in what is normally an error prone environment; it has also saved us ten times what it costs us each month.- Michael @ Tiara Cafe
