Be Your Own Expert

Trefis graphically presents its analysis and invites you to tweak it

Trefis graphically presents the components of its forecast, showing how they add up. Clicking on a component drills down to display the assumptions. That alone would be noteworthy, but Trefis goes one step further: the various trend lines are easily adjustable, allowing the viewer to both enter their own expectations and explore different scenarios. Instead of taking a forecast at face value, this permits every customer to dig deeper into the analysis and to develop their own personal forecast, based on their understanding and beliefs.
