Forecasting and Budgeting assessment tool

ecommerce resources
Why take the assessment?

Using data from our Marketing and Budgeting forecasting research we decided to create an assessment tool. We wanted to create a tool rather than a report to help people assess their maturity and get a set of personalised actions, unique to them, to help improve.

Ecommerce benchmarking tool
