Akucast is a SaaS company that simplifies the forecasting process, leading to accurate forecasting.
A Bit of History
The name Akucast, is a mash-up of two words, “accurate” and “forecast”. Several attempts later in a brainstorming session, Rick, one of the co-founders who is from Hawaii, got on the theme of “big game hunting” and “big game fishing”. A lightbulb went off in his head with the word, “Aku”. Aku, also known as Skipjack Tuna, is an island favorite and a highly prized game fish. This went along perfectly with the big game fishing theme. Conglomerating “Aku” with “cast” and the word Akucast was born.
