MS Forecaster Essentials Online Training is a software product used for organizational budgeting and planning. It is licensed as part of the Microsoft Dynamics product family.

Microsoft Forecaster helps organizations replace spreadsheet based budgeting and planning by providing a database-centric approach that allows for audit capabilities, workflow, and increased data security. Microsoft Forecaster also provides “detail modules” to help budget and plan for human resources, capital and revenue/expenses.

While not dependent on Microsoft Dynamics ERP packages, Microsoft Forecaster is most often positioned and sold as an add-on to Microsoft Dynamics general ledgers.

Microsoft Forecaster originated from a company called eBudgets.com, based in Plainsboro, New Jersey. eBudgets.com was acquired by FRx Software Corporation in 2001.

Owned by Great Plains Software, FRx expanded its product offerings into budgeting and forecasting. Subsequently Great Plains was purchased by Microsoft, where it was run as a wholly owned subsidiary.

At the time eBudgets.com was purchased by FRx Software, it had two separate offerings; Helmsman, a client-server offering written in C++, and a product called eBudgets.com, which was developed to eventually provide a web based replacement to Helmsman.

eBudgets.com was primarily offered in a hosted Application Service Provider (ASP) environment. Following the acquisition, the eBudgets.com offering was renamed to FRx Forecaster, while Helmsman was rebranded to FRx Helmsman.
