Sage 50 Forecasting makes this easy, by allowing you to predict the impact of changes in your business, assess their impact and make decisions with complete confidence. Sage 50 Forecasting's integration with Sage 50 Accounts, simple data-entry and pre-installed formulae combine to produce figures you can trust. It lets you:

See the impact of potential business decisions
You can experiment with different ‘What if?’ scenarios, without affecting your base data. So you can see how things like price rises, new ventures and expansion will impact on your business.

Make the most of exciting new business opportunities
By experimenting with business scenarios you’ll be given a risk-free view of the potential impact on your business, which will allow you to make the most of any new business opportunities that come along. For example, test out the impact of any business idea such as expansion, diversification, taking on new staff or adding new product lines.
