Leading Edge developed two forecasting models for us, the first to forecast total UK construction output by sector and the other to forecast our own sales by product group. We were extremely pleased with the work, the models give us more confidence and we use them in our business planning. We would definitely recommend using Leading Edge, they have added significant value to our forecasting process.
