Sales Forecasting With Excel or Google Sheets

Helping Sales Teams

Collect input from your team members on deals or pipeline data. Manage access, track and review changes, collaborate and communicate on top of your existing spreadsheets.

The Challenge of Preparing
 Your Sales Forecasts With Spreadsheets

Forecasting sales without reliable predictive data produces poor insights and breaks confidence in forecasting analysis.

Layer helps Sales teams be more efficient in tracking sales activity by saving them time on collecting, consolidating, and reporting deals.

Without layer

A spreadsheet containing sensitive data leads to data being exchanged via email or chat.

Collecting input from several Sales Representatives without letting everyone in on your master file can be a challenge.

The alternative is to request input in a separate channel.

With layer

No more lengthy Slack or email threads with back-and-forth attachments.

Give access to individual tabs or ranges of your forecast file.

Layer offers a closed system without the need for back-and-forth attachments and separate communication channels.

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

Collecting Sales figures on a recurrent basis can be frustrating and deadlines can be missed.

Since this is primarily a manual process involving email threads and copy-pasting data to your spreadsheet, data consolidation is prone to error and becomes an inefficient task.

With layer

Start meeting deadlines and focusing on high-value tasks.

Set reminders for input requests, and Layer will remind stakeholders so you can have an up-to-date forecast at all times.

Easily review the inputs and decide on which parts to accept. Layer will then automatically merge the updated data into your master model. No more copy-pasting!
