PredictHQ’s COVID-19 Response

The pandemic has drastically increased the need to run efficient operations and make the most of demand fluctuations. PredictHQ is helping our customers navigate the current chaos and prepare for the vaccine-fueled recovery with six new features.

The Challenge

The pandemic blew demand forecasting to pieces

Rolling day averages and previous year’s historical data are not enough for accurate demand forecasting at scale. Different restrictions, attitudes and ongoing events continue to impact demand yet are hard to track at scale. Looking to 2021, the recovery will be fragmented and hyper-localized.
