Off the-shelf forecasting package designed for business forecasters. A powerful, sophisticated, accurate, yet easy-to-use and quick to implement solution for all industries.
AUTOMATIC STATISTICAL FORECASTING
Forecast Pro’s automatic “best pick” algorithm allows you to generate accurate forecasts, even for thousands of items, in a matter of seconds and will account for seasonal patterns, trends, business cycles, promotional activity and more.
Forecast Pro provides menu-based custom modeling options and a comprehensive set of diagnostic tools.
CUSTOMIZED HIERARCHIES & MULTIPLE UNITS OF MEASURE
Forecast at any level of granularity and easily view/report aggregate data and forecasts. Forecast Pro supports hierarchy pivoting and the ability to work with forecasts in units, dollars, and other units of measure simultaneously, allowing different parts of your team and/or organization to view the forecasts how they want to see them.
EASY FORECAST ADJUSTMENT & COLLABORATION
Easily collaborate with others to establish the final forecast. A robust, Excel-like grid control allows easy adjustment by percentage, increments, or by simply entering new values. Adjustments to the forecast can be made at any level in the hierarchy, and all changes are automatically reconciled.
SALES AND OPERATIONS PLANNING (S&OP)
In support of your organization’s S&OP process, you can import supplementary data into Forecast Pro ‒ such as other forecasts, current inventory, and open orders ‒ to build customized reports and graphs.
FORECAST ACCURACY REPORTING
Forecast Pro maintains an archive of your previous forecasts (both statistically–generated and adjusted forecasts) so that you can compare and contrast previous forecasts to what actually happened. With just a quick glance at Forecast Pro’s “waterfall” reports you can zero in on what’s working and what isn’t.
Forecast Pro’s flexible exception reporting allows you to focus on areas that need your attention. The reports are easily customizable to reflect different performance metrics ‒ such as forecast vs. history or whether forecast error exceeds a pre-defined threshold – and give you a quick way to identify potential problem areas.
INTEGRATED WITH PREACTOR APS
Forecast Pro can be imported into your Preactor Advanced Planning & Scheduling modules to aid in your strategic long-term planning decisions.
