5Share is a private, online community built specifically for public sector leaders to collaborate and tap into knowledge from their peers. With the ability to collaborate amongst peers, long email chains can be eliminated, and key documents can be stored and shared all within the platform. The opportunity to connect and share in new insights has never been so convenient.
Public sector leaders from large national organizations to small, local sets of school districts, work with Forecast5 to find data insights on the issues that matter most. We at Forecast5 use our own proprietary survey interface to collect unique sets of data that turn into powerful, dynamic analytics that drive strategic decision making for public sector leaders.
"Utilizing small group surveys in 5Share™, my collaboration group collected valuable data on extra-duty stipends across numerous extracurricular activities. Data on these negotiated expenses allowed me to generate a fair offer that was $100,000 less per year than what was asked for."
Barry Bolek, Former Assistant Superintendent of Finance, Township HSD 113, Illinois
