Introduction to Fathom Forecasting
Forecasting in Fathom starts with choosing a forecast onboarding method and going through the onboarding process. Then, once the forecast is created, you’ll be able to further customise and tailor the forecast’s baseline to the company or consolidated group. After setting up the baseline, you’ll be able to better strategise and plan for business actions and scenarios.
Fathom’s Forecasting tool enables you to forecast out 3 financial years into the future beyond the current financial year.
