The Forecasting module is an additional feature of Enable that builds on the default ability to forecast earnings for a program line on a linearly extrapolated basis. The additional functionality offered by this module allows more control over, and visibility of, the prediction of a program line’s future performance.
The module allows you to input the expected spend for a program line and apportion this value over specific periods to account for seasonality or other expected changes in behavior. These values can be adjusted at any time over the course of a program line’s term, as it progresses and actual transactions are recorded in the system, or external factors become known which may influence the program line’s performance.
The forecast report provides a summary of the forecast performance for the period of interest with the ability to break the report down by various attributes.
Audit logs can be viewed to evidence the changes made to a forecast over time and the reasons behind them.
