Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What is the Horizon Software used for?
We will be using the Horizon software to estimate product sales for various scenario. An example scenario would be, “what would the product sales be if we doubled the planned sales effort on the product”. Each participant will have the Horizon software installed on their machine. They will estimate the sales using their experience, judgment and the data that we have access to. We will then be able to quickly aggregate the data, using the Horizon software, and see the range of forecasts.
Q. Does the software require an internet connection?
No. An internet connection is not required to use the Horizon software
Q. Does the Horizon Software require Administrator Rights to run?
While Admin rights are required to install the Horizon software, they are not required for normal operations.
Q. Why is the software required only for one consulting session / workshop?
The Horizon software has been specifically designed for this type of peer group, consensus decision making session. It is not a general analytical tool and required other Cozmix tools to configure it.
Q. Why can’t Cozmix use the Horizon software on their machines?
The whole point of the Horizon software is to gather participant’s judgments. Since there are many participants it is not practically possible without the Horizon software.
Q. Is there an alternative?
The sort answer is no. The software is integral to the project. If it is not possible to install on company machines the only alternative would be to rent machines for each participant for the session (i.e. for three days).
Q. Does the software access any data on the participants’ machines?
The only data which is accessed is the set-up data and the data entered directly into the Horizon software. The Horizon software does not access any other data.
