The Story Behind the Software

Forecast5 Analytics grew from the passion of a small group of professionals who, through their work assisting schools with their cash flow analyses and fund deposits, witnessed first-hand the challenges district leaders face in being able to clearly communicate complex financial information to their stakeholders. From these experiences, an idea was born.

A small group, including Mike English, Scott Smith, Vlad Dragosavljevic, and Misha Kostich, began working on developing a solution that would enable districts to capitalize on the data already captured within their financial systems. They envisioned a solution that was so powerful, it would empower clients to develop comprehensive forecasts and projections on their own. It would also help streamline the process of creating informative visuals and reports districts could use to communicate complex financial data in an easily understandable way.

This was the vision that created Forecast5.

In 2012, Forecast5 launched with one product and a handful of clients. Only eight years later, our company now offers a suite of solutions that helps more than 2,000 public sector clients across the country harness the decision-making power of their data to identify both strategic and financial opportunities.

Not only are we helping organizations improve their financial and organizational performance and increase transparency, but we’re now also enabling them to use student data analytics to determine next-grade and college, career, and military readiness; assess the effectiveness of SEL programming; enhance student performance outcomes; and more. We’re also providing them with location intelligence through our geovisual analytics solutions.

Imagine what we can do together in the future!
