The addition of the Forecast Plugin (Purchase Forecast Plugin) permits eoStar to forecast sales and purchases for products.
Forecasts are broken into periods within the year, to better fit with the sales patterns associated with beer and wine sales.Through the forecast type, the user can create a new type with a specific number of periods within a year, as well as add products to that type. The Forecast Entry allows for the editing of these periods to project sale possibilities per period.
Additionally, the forecasts generated through the forecast plugin can be used in exports to third party software. For example, forecasts can be sent to the Miller Brewing Company using the File>Interface>Miller>Export Forecasts to Miller menu option.
