Harley-Davidson is the only major U.S.-based motorcycle manufacturer to sign a contract for Planalytics Business Weather Intelligence (SM) services, according to Planalytics’ press release.
Planalytics will provide H-D with an understanding of the correlation between past weather patterns and sales history. From that information, Planalytics can project the weather’s impact on future demand for H-D products. The SM tool will be able to directly apply itself to H-D’s current business processes.
Planalytics offers other tools that allow business to collect more information by researching zip codes for trends like normal temperatures, comparisons to prior years, day counts of precipitation, etc.
