Integrating with the Anaplan Budgeting and Planning Model, FinancialForce revenue actuals and bookings backlog. This Revenue Forecasting model collects financial forecasts and capacity requirements from the delivery and sales team.

 

These inputs produce a live revenue forecast which is reported against the top down revenue plan, giving your organization a live view of forecast vs target.

 

The forecast may then be output back to the Budgeting and Financial Planning Model and also the Capacity information is available for use in the OpenSymmetry Capacity Planning model, which enables the business to plan the organization resources against the revenue expectations set by the delivery and sales teams.
