9. Forecasting 


With Inforiver, you can quickly create sales forecasts, business plans or financial budgets. Any value entered in a parent row gets distributed to its children. By default, it is distributed equally, but you can also opt to distribute based on other data (e.g., prior year actuals).​​ Values entered in child rows automatically roll up to the top.
