Stop playing the guessing game!

Being able to predict the revenue of your organization is vital. An accurate revenue forecast allows for planning, focusing on the right aspects of your business, making informed strategic decisions, budgeting, and allocating resources appropriately, just to name a few. This, in turn, saves you time and money. One of the best new features included in the Dynamics 365 2020 Release Wave 1 is Sales Forecasting. It enables you make accurate predictions, eliminating the guesswork.

Sales Forecasting Webinar

Brian Begley, the owner of enCloud9 and Dynamics365support.com, began our monthly webinar by giving some information on Sales Forecasting: talking briefly about what it is and the benefits of using sales forecasting. He discussed the differences between Goals in Dynamics 365 and Sales Forecasting. While Goals were a good idea in theory, they could be hard to manage. Sales Forecasting, on the other hand is much more flexible and easy to manage.

Brian then went right into his demo.  He showed us how to create a sales forecast and demonstrated how easy it is to get around. Brian also showed us a sales forecast that he had already made, in order to demonstrate some points on interpreting the results of a forecast.
