Based on a work of collecting the user experience of ExportPlanning.com users (currently over 3800), StudiaBo has developed a new version of the ExportPlanning platform, currently available in beta version: v3.exportplanning.com.
The objectives of this new version are as follows:

  1. make the data of the ExportPlanning Information System more usable;
  2. allow an immediate representation of the data of the ExportPlanning Information System, using special data visualization tools;
  3. make available to the user a toolbox in terms of tools that facilitate the user's analysis work;
  4. offer the user the possibility of activating personalized services that go beyond the ready-to-use options present on the platform.

ExportPlanning v3 access instructions

At StudiaBo we strongly believe that growth in terms of quality and usability of our products/services can only start from the needs and requirements of our users. For this reason we have decided to "open" the ExportPlanning v3 construction site to anyone who wants to contribute by bringing a suggestion, a criticism or a report on what has been done so far.
ExportPlanning v3 can be accessed using the same credentials to access www.exportplanning.com.
NB: the new version of the ExportPlanning platform is still to be considered as "beta" and therefore still to be considered as in-progress.

1) Another area accessible via the DATA environment of the new version of the ExportPlanning platform is called Production and Demand: it allows you to access, process and extract annual Production and Apparent Demand data for over 3000 products and over 150 countries.
2) With Datamart we mean an archive of internally homogeneous data.
