2018-05-01

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.

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.

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.

2018-05-09

Pros

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.

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.

Great team of good people who really stand behind their product.

Pros

The guys who actually code and build the product are the ones giving the support. Over time, they get to understand how you use the software and are able to give context to issues or questions you may have.
