Ease of use is important, great results are more important. We get them both with Avercast.

I've had great success with the robust forecasting methods. I also like the ability to review and set forecast across different levels of detail.

Cons
But I am still worried how Avercast will push forecasts through to D3FO because I have been unable to do so.

There is a learning curve, some of my users have a difficult navigating the menu. The look and feel of the software is outdated.

The dated design in no way reflects the capabilities of the calculations and processes that the software uses.

Easy to work as they completely understand our business requirements and provides best solution

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Avercast can be customized as per organization's needs and serves as one-stop solution for efficient Supply Chain. With thousands of fast moving SKUs we are able to manage the forecasting and planning in literally minutes with customized reports. What really makes a business different, apart from functionalities, is the service it provides to it's customers and the value it adds. As a customer, working with Avercast for over a year, we have been extremely satisfied with the service and state-of-the-art functionalities which the software brings along.

Cons

I would like to see an increase in the frequency of online webinars they currently hold, which not only encourages us to share best practices, with other organizations, but also acts as a medium to adapt to one.

Vendor response

Pranav, thanks so much for the accolades! We are glad the customization of Avercast has been useful to you and your team. Great to hear you rely on Avercast to manage forecasting and planing and even greater to hear that you can do it in minutes. Great suggestion to have more webinars. We are planning one in the next few weeks so keep an eye on your e-mail. Thanks again for your kind words. It is great working with you as well.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Avercast gives you the ability to make forecast plans and events on several levels. It allows you to not only plan demand at the SKU level, it has the ability to roll that demand up to different levels, allowing you to get a high level view of the total demand and overall trends. The built in forecasting methods are a covenant when you want to automate some of your forecasting. The data extract and import modules are very convenient when you are maintaining your items, or updating a large number of forecasts at one time. The program overall has helped us reduce our overall inventory levels, as well as helped us gain better access and visibility into our supply and forecasting plans.

Cons

Because Avercast has so many built in fuctions, and the Avercast team continues to improve the functionality of the program, one of the difficulties that we see are, whenever there is a new version roll out there are several customizations that we have built into our version that need to be rewritten and rebuilt into our new versions in order for our program to run correctly again. Although the use of built in forecasting methods makes forecasting convienant, it is often difficult to know which forecasting algorithms are being applied to the forecast and what data they are being derived from. It would be nice if Avercast gave you an idea of what forecasting methods are being applied and how to interpret the out put of those forecasting algorithms.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review James! We appreciate your business over the last few years. We're glad you like the features of our demand planning software and are glad you have been able to reduce overall inventory. We are working to provide better documentation for our custom enhancements. Feel free to give us a call or an e-mail with any questions you have in the mean time. Thank you again for leaving such a great review.

Great Planning Software for Manufacturing

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great Customer Support. Enhancement requests heard at the annual customer conference. Assurance that the best plan is being implemented by the system which saves us time and money annually.

Pros

We have been using Avercast for 4-5 years now, and the improvements from our old methods to this have been very noticeable. Given the wide range of algorithms the system uses and not to mention the ease of use, whether you are a roll-up or top-down planning company, Avercast adapts to your business needs. More importantly, because of Avercast our team is allowed to focus our time on outliers in the system. When you are a very SKU intense organization like we are, time management is everything. I think the biggest gain with Avercast though is the customer support you receive with the software. There's no helpdesk email or portal system. We simply call the office and speak right with their developers; a huge win in our opinion.

Cons

The only thing that needs improvement, in our opinion is the user interface. With Avercast being an SQL based program, it still resembles one on the front end. Given the enhancements in technology each day, it would be great to see the Avercast software get a new face lift. Don't be fooled though. The dated design in no way reflects the capabilities of the calculations and processes that the software uses. We don't care how dated the front end looks as long as the information is accurate and correct.

Avercast's tool is already robust, but they are next level when it comes to cutting edge development

Reviewed 3 years ago

We've not only seen generous financial gains from the reduction of excess inventory as a by product of implementing the software but also a major improvement in our processes, collaboration, and general understanding of our mission as planners for the company. Our team now spends the appropriate amount of time analyzing the data, putting into practice the adage of "work smarter, not harder." Avercast is the tool that will allow our company sustainable growth for decades moving forward.

Pros

Flexibility, customer service, openness and follow through to develop enhancements, consistent and easy implementation, quick ROI

Cons

I have little to no complaints, this should be a software solution that is on everyone's list when considering purchasing a demand planning software system.

Vendor response

We know it can be daunting to find a software that works well for managing demand in your company and we are glad you trust Avercast to do that. Let us know if you have any questions or need support from our staff. Thanks again for leaving such a great review.
