Workbooks enables you to create real-time sales Forecasts. Forecasts show Opportunities in your sales cycle that are committed to close and those that are 'best case' Opportunities, allowing you to see the latest status of your business.
These Forecasts can be created individually for each sales executive and then be rolled-up into Forecasts for sales management. They include both revenue and gross margin information. Forecasts display sales progress against sales targets. Within Workbooks sales targets are known as Quotas.
A sales Quota must have been set up for a given Accounting Period before a Forecast can be created.
Forecasts where the Quota has been reached or exceeded are coloured green.
Forecasts where the Quota has not yet been reached are coloured red.
