TASBooks - Stock forecasting

If your TASBooks licence includes Stock Control, the Stock Forecast report shows how long your current stock levels are likely to last based on the average sales over the past 12 months/13 periods. This helps to identify both over-stocking and which product lines are slow moving. Having this information to hand will help you to maintain appropriate stock levels and save money.
