Higher Education

Data analytics solutions for higher education institutions.


Know the impact of your decisions on long-term solvency. 

One-year state budgets. Midyear cuts. Fluctuating enrollment. It’s challenging enough to create accurate financial projections; it’s even tougher when the assumptions change. With Forecast5, you’ll spend less time assembling data, freeing you to focus on analyzing potential solutions.


“In the past, I would manually pull data into Excel to aggregate and analyze. With 5Cast, I can automatically pull data across multiple funds and easily adjust predictions and inputs for instant results. Using the system for two years now, our forecasting is very accurate and has been within minimal variance of our actual year-end balance.”
