Notably, it also introduces "wow" indicators that add a layer of engagement, allowing customers to effortlessly track trends and patterns in their sales journey.
Forecast accuracy tracking: elevating forecasting process effectiveness
What's new: The latest addition to HubSpot's suite of tools is forecast accuracy tracking, designed to provide businesses with a measure of forecast reliability and the efficiency of their forecasting processes.

This update empowers businesses to identify trends, patterns, and underlying factors that directly contribute to the enhancement of forecast performance. With this real-time insight, businesses can make data-driven decisions, optimising their strategic moves for better outcomes and revenue forecasting reliability.
AI forecasting: empowering sales predictions with AI
Use case: AI Forecasting is a formidable ally in the realm of prediction. Its ability to significantly enhance forecast accuracy, sometimes up to 95% or beyond, is a game-changer for sales teams. But what's truly remarkable is its capacity to learn and adapt, evolving over time as it continually analyses and improves based on real sales activities.
Comprehensive forecast management: forecast across pipelines
