Your Executive Vantage Point™ (EVP) program is helping you make informed decisions for the main portion of your business (total sales, total units shipped, your largest division, etc.). But this approach can leave out other important segments of your business.
To ensure your business has the right industry foresight, the means to establish an effective pricing strategy, and more, ITR Economics has add-on options for your overall program. We provide additional foresight and insight via these add-ons, giving your executive team every tool they need to plan with confidence.
Perhaps you are looking to build a strategy around a certain division, but you do not have an accurate forecast for that division.
As with your EVP program, an ITR Economics Company Forecast provides a 12-quarter outlook for one of your internal datasets, such as Total US Sales. You can add to your EVP program by purchasing an additional Company Forecast, creating an even more robust platform from which to plan.
Have you ever had a consulting session with one of our economists and wanted a more comprehensive view of a specific indicator? Have you and our economist discussed commodities and their impact on your business performance? Do you sell to or from other countries? Will more insight on a foreign exchange rate prove helpful to your strategy? Do you build marketing strategies using foresight into upcoming activity in specific industries?
If your answer for any of the above is “yes,” then consider adding a Market Forecast to your EVP Program.
Market Index Forecast
"As we move through this tumultuous decade, it will become increasingly important for each business to find a producer or material price index that fits their business. Using this will be the difference between profitability and losing money.” – from ITR Economics’ 2014 book, Prosperity in the Age of Decline
As we move through the 2020s and closer to the 2030s, ITR Economics has answered this need by developing our Customized Price Index service, built by our experts and specifically applicable to your business during what will be an inflationary period beyond what this generation of young leaders have so far experienced.
DataCast is a data analysis tool that puts YOU in the driver’s seat, letting you plot your data against leading indicators found in ITR Economics’ database – in real time. This hands-on experience will increase your understanding of where you have been and where you are going in relation to market trends.
It’s a robust, intuitive, online tool that will give you a greater understanding of the economic trends driving your business and help you identify where your company is headed.

Would a view of your internal company datasets or industries of interest, all overlayed into one Rates-of-Change chart, be helpful for your business planning? Would your team find it useful to see which industries are providing opportunities, and which indicate risks, in one seamless view?
With ITR Economics’ Market/Company Landscape Overview, you can customize your program and begin using this add-on during your consultations with your Trusted Advisor.
Do you have other internal datasets you want to compare to your main forecasted dataset? Perhaps you have divisions within the business you would like to compare against your Total Revenue?
ITR Economics’ Divisional Charting enables you to customize your program to include the data for these divisions with your report.
Have you ever asked yourself how a particular indicator may relate to a division within your company, but you do not need an entire program analyzing the division?
With Division to Indicator charting, you get insight into the relationship between a particular indicator and your specific division. Our team will analyze the timing relationship as well as provide the current Business Cycle Phase for this additional dataset.
Are you taking your program to the next level by including key insights such as a Customized Market Index or Custom Price Index?
If so, then we recommend you consider taking your program even further by getting insight into how these metrics relate to each other.
