Forecast Pro has been instrumental in keeping us lean, despite the market volatility of the past few years.

Working with multiple-level hierarchies is easy in Forecast Pro, providing us an efficient, effective and profitable way to focus on the most important items.”

    “Forecast Pro is very easy to use. Setting up the data is a breeze and I lean heavily on the product expert selection mode to choose the best forecasting models. What nice is that if I’m uncomfortable with the algorithm chosen for a particular item or group, it easy to modify the forecasting method. Overriding the forecast is equally important as we take the statistical forecast and add judgment to arrive at a final demand plan. With Forecast Pro, making overrides and documenting the changes is simple.”

    Forecast Pro is a great product which has far exceeded our expectations. We began looking into statistical forecasting as a way to improve some of our business processes. We did some independent research into the field and looked at some industry-wide benchmarks. Business Forecast Systems allowed us to try the product on our own data, and the results were astounding! We fed Forecast Pro six of the past seven years of our data and allowed it to forecast the seventh (most recent) year. In each category, it came far within the industry benchmarks, sometimes achieving as little as 1% error. We have continued to use it and have not been disappointed with the results.”
