INDIANAPOLIS — Guilford Group, an Indianapolis-based software company, announced the launch of its new software, SalesForekast™. For the first time, companies can utilize a fresh new set of online analytical tools to support a forecasting process that has historically been expensive and cumbersome.

SalesForekast™ distinguishes itself from the competition by allowing companies to simply and affordably correlate their sales to macroeconomic indicators. Therefore, companies can gain an additional perspective on future sales based on trends that the economy is following.

Using SalesForekast™, private companies gain a competitive edge by understanding how their performance can be affected by broad economic and market trends.

Similarly, private equity investors can confirm prior to investing whether market trends will provide a tailwind or headwind in the near future. This allows investors to screen opportunities efficiently while reducing the risk of poor investments.

SalesForekast™ can be used effectively to look at forecasts for sales and market capitalization for public companies or their divisions. It reduces the time and expense typically required to perform market analysis and trend correlation at this level.

SalesForekast™ also enables access to Fortune 100 level forecasting for small and mid-sized companies with large customer bases.

“The sales forecasting and economic correlation tools available through this software gave me another view as compared to the internal ‘bottom up’ forecast. This equipped me with the information I needed to convince my board of the growth potential of the company.“ -Bill Midgette

“I have used this approach with a number of companies that I have invested in and found that there was an opportunity to provide a software package that would be helpful to companies and investors in order to improve their forecasting capabilities. The correlation with macroeconomic indicators provides another view of the world – at a very reasonable cost.” - Rahul Kapur

For a limited time, SalesForekast™ is offering a free 14-day trial that includes full access to their software.
