Forecast Forge is a platform for making forecasts. It uses a forecasting algorithm that works well for a wide variety of metrics.  It has a user interface where users can import data, enrich it with their own information and interact with the final results to duplicate much of what a spreadsheet does.  It should be noted that Forecast Forge works more on spreadsheets, especially on spreadsheets like Google Sheets.  The tool makes it possible to forecast seasonal elements (weekly or annual). Thus, it captures the repetitive patterns that occur every week or every year. A week-to-week or month-to-month trend that does not vary too much and is not too large.
