Webinar: Beyond the Factory Floor
Growth in the manufacturing sector has contracted for the first time in nearly a decade. In the midst of a trade war and with an economic slowdown looming, the urgency for manufacturing companies to gain the best insights into the factors that affect their business is more important than ever.

Hear from the Experts
In this webinar, Bob Vandervaart from TimkenSteel joins us to discuss how to truly maximize the depth and accuracy of insights into what drives your business by incorporating external factors, such as industry data, economic data, survey data, etc., into your business planning processes.

We will also share examples of how companies are using predictive analytics to drive economic intelligence for their business and how these insights can be operationalized throughout different departments of an organization.
