Supplier forecasting completes financial planning with supplier data. For exa, a company can plan purchases by indicating purchases by indicating accounts for the most important suppliers. It will thus be able to analyze and optimize the relationship with the various suppliers, perhaps by requesting payment extensions.
Forecasting with the double entry method also allows you to indicate accounts for individual suppliers. Depending on the need, suppliers management can be done with balance sheet accounts, profit and accounts or with cost and profit centers.
When changing a budget movement, the forecasts for each individual supplier are also updated.
Set up accounts for suppliers in the Accounts table. In the Estimate column you will also have the updated forecast balances for the accounting period. At a glance you can know what the forecast for the individual supplier will be.
If you view the Graphs window, positioning the cursor on an account or a group you will see the graph for the evolution of the suppliers.
If you click on the Current, Previous or Estimate legend, you can hide the graph.
