Darwin Financial Budget
In the Financial Budget the budget is set on all levels of the sales hierarchy. Darwin supports up to ten levels. Usually two to three levels are in use, e.g. 1.Country, 2.Shop type, 3. Shop.
Setting the budget can be started on each level. Darwin supports a top-down and a bottom-up planning. The budgets are set per period, which are usually weeks. Periodes can be defined freely (also possible are for instance two-week periods, months, 4-4-5).
The user is supported with relevant historic information of previous years: #shops, #M2, turnover, turnover/M2, margin% and margin value.
The user can select which years’ information should be shown.
The financial budget is first initialized on the basis of a previous year together with parameters, e.g. increase of margin% and turnover/M2.
