What do you like best?

insanely speed and user friendly interface allows to do your work effective and efficiently. So much fun to work and could do changes quick and easy. A supply chain professional can make use of the software and get the required output using different strategies based on company objectives in different market conditions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

can't think of anything. So flexible and could change according to the requirements. User has to be smart. The trouble shooting is a bit difficult with the version we use as it is all text base files. (Ver 11.2.16.0) The new version is too expensive to upgrade. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The best forecasting tool I ever used. Speed and user friendliness is key. Have to ensure the data you feed is accurate and up-to-date to get the best results as any other software. Garbage in garbage out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

All of my history is kept in one place and easily seen upon forecasting. There was no toggling in between screens for my decision making. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some items that had high sales were not differentiated between regular sales and a special event. It would be useful to have this categorized to incorporate into the automated piece rather than manual. Another option that would be useful as comparing location forecasts for use in inventory balancing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The more effort that is put in to this on a daily basis the better the outcome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I greatly benefited from this program during my inventory balancing campaign. I was able to reduce unused inventory in many locations and place in the high demand areas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

If the software is running without issues, it does a great job with forecasting. The problem is that you will always have issues with this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Software bugs from top to bottom. Errors clicking through different screens. Slow loading times. Confusing UI. TERRIBLE customer support. They claim to support older versions but their support team does not keep any old instances around so they will not test anything on your version. They've spent 5 MONTHS trying to fix something in our software and the communication is horrible, they ignore emails and are rude on the phone. This is not a company you want to deal with when you have problems (and you WILL have problems given how many bugs are in the software). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do NOT get this product unless you want to waste a lot of time and money. You will save yourself years of headaches by going with another better known and supported software. Don't make the same mistake as us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We went live in late 2015. The forecasting tool had been working for 2 years then we started running into a handful of bugs and issues. We paid for additional modules but we could not even get them up and running due to the problems we're experiencing. This has been a money sink. Save yourself the trouble and go with a different company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Powerful forecasting models with good accuracy. Decent integration with our ERP solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

System is very slow, especially when saving. Support team is stretched so thin it is almost impossible to get them to respond. Very quirky software and while the forecasting engine is powerful, all the other features don't feel like they were programmed very efficiently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Decent forecasting tool at a decent price... but you get what you pay for in terms of performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for sales forecasting and VMI for customer products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is a powerful tool, an Forecast Analyst's best friend. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The system is quirky and unpredictable. Even though the server and our network meet and exceed the requirements, the program runs very slow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have had an improvement to our MAPE since implementing, in part because we have been able to forecast based on different streams of data where appropriate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
