If you rely on weather forecasts created months in advance, pretty soon you’ll end up waist-deep in snow, wearing your best Bermuda shorts and Hawaiian shirt. Much like those fashion choices, acting on outdated forecasts isn’t a great look on anyone.

For a forecast to stay accurate, it must be changed frequently using the most recent and relevant data available—and doing that at speed requires both sophisticated technology and an agile approach to planning.

If you’re constantly re-forecasting to get ahead of change and using best-practice methodologies like driver-based rolling forecasts to plan at the speed of business, we want you!
