2021 Webinar Schedule

July 29 | ACA Webinar: Real-time Indicators for Business Planning in the Coatings Industry

Presenter: Doug Bohn, director, Orr & Boss 

This free webinar will address the use of non-traditional real-time indicators that coatings companies can use to plan their businesses and track the markets. As the speed of business has increased and up and down swings in end-use markets, it has become increasingly useful to understand real-time business indicators. Traditional government data like GDP growth, construction activity, auto production, along with data like Google Trends, Mobility Data, local real estate transaction data, commercial & residential lending data, can all provide early indicators of up and down swings in the market. The data can also be extremely localized. The webinar will demonstrate how real-time data indicators can be used for business planning.
