The Sales Forecasting module within Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 ERP software increases collaboration by bridging communication gaps and creating a powerful loop that facilitates effective product delivery. Create best-case and worst-case forecasts for multiple timeframes to allocate resources accordingly. Quickly review prior year sales, revise projections, and create a Master Production Schedule from forecasts for efficient planning and production.
