Forecast+ allows you to tag your Chart of Accounts (CoA) according to the department or type of expense (fixed vs variable). This enables you to analyze your costs by department or type.
Note - All costs marked as Marketing department are automatically used to calculate CAC (customer acquisition cost).
CAC = all marketing tagged costs accounts/new customers from Baremetrics
The tagged accounts are represented in the form of charts on the dashboard (expense breakdown chart and fixed vs variable chart), providing you with a visual representation of your financial performance. This feature is especially useful for businesses that want to track their performance by department, such as sales, marketing, or production.
In summary, tagging your Chart of Accounts allows you to:
🔍 Analyze Costs by Department or Fixed Variable: Understand your spending better by categorizing costs by department or as fixed or variable expenses.
📊 View Expense Breakdown: Utilize the Dashboard for a clear visualization of your business's expense breakdown, allowing for quick and efficient assessments.
