As the novel coronavirus pandemic continues to affect all of our communities, we are all doing our best to adjust to the quickly changing conditions. The most important thing is that we keep ourselves and the people around us safe, which means closely following the measures put in place by our public health professionals and governments. However, in such unprecedented times, some businesses may also be struggling to figure out how closures or shifting business models are impacting their bottom lines, and what they can do to minimize that impact. The only way to get conclusive answers about your current situation, and be better positioned to predict future outcomes, is to find the right insights in your data.
