Mastering the Financial Forecast to Drive Predictability and Growth

Date: Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Forecasting is key to identifying future financial risks, challenges, and opportunities. Good forecasts benefit companies by enabling decision makers to assess the business landscape and strategically align their capital resources for high-impact results. Despite the best of intentions, the efforts that go into creating a manual forecast far exceed the benefits they provide. New methods of forecasting leave behind time-consuming and error-prone processes and allow companies to raise the value of the forecast by aligning information.
