Resource scheduling & project management for agencies

Forecast Overview

Forecast is an AI-powered resource scheduling & project management solution designed for agencies with time tracking, automation, and integration. Using artificial intelligence (AI) Forecast aims to learn from its users and automate the scheduling, setup, and management of projects. By providing users with tools for collaboration, workflow management, scheduling, estimating, reporting, time tracking, deadline tracking, and more, Forecast is designed to help businesses deliver projects on time and within budget.

With a focus on making projects profitable, Forecast provides tools to enhance productivity and planning such as task delegation, labelling, task cards, and project overviews with completion tracking, deadlines, and budget and spend data. Tasks, known as cards within Forecast, can be assigned to individuals or teams and can be organized into to-do lists or a drag and drop Kanban workflow to aid with planning. Custom workflows can be setup to align with business processes, and the calendar is available in Gantt chart format to give a quick overview of upcoming tasks and allow for easy adjustment.

Forecast facilitates collaboration for team projects through features such as commenting, @mentioning, emojis, and labelling, and the project tab gives users an overview of who is doing what and how much time is being spent on each task compared with estimates. The scheduling tool allows users to plan resources using a drag and drop interface, or automatically using machine learning, to allocate team members to tasks based on their availability and skills.

Time and spend can be tracked within Forecast using tools such as the in-built timer, manual time entry, deadline tracking, milestones, budget setup, and AI estimates. Forecast uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to aid users with creating accurate estimates for each project, and time and spend can be reported within the app to monitor budgets alongside estimates.
