Forecasting entails the estimation of future behavior of business variables, in terms of values and directional trends, based on their historical values and other influencing factors. Forecasting models are used to aid decision making on strategic, tactical and operational levels. Based on insights from our clients, we work with them to identify the best possible combination of the three dimensions(time, product and geography) that scope the forecasting effort.

How Can Forecasting Help?

DecisionCraft possesses immense expertise in developing forecasting models based on advanced time series analysis (For e.g., Exponential smoothing, Box-Jenkin's, Box-Tiao, ARCH/GARCH) and regression techniques. We have developed a robust modeling methodology, which ensures that all inherent patterns in the data are incorporated along with the effect of critical influencing factors, both internal to the business and from the external environment.
