An accurate forecast is a critical supply-chain driver, but many organizations have a limited view of what comes next. Planning teams are left to interpret sales or budget projections and convert them into actionable forecasts of the item mix.

This process is often managed in complex spreadsheets that are difficult to use, scale and share. They also rely on rule-of-thumb forecasting approaches that don’t properly account for inherent demand patterns or track how forecast overrides can impact accuracy, resulting in forecast errors that can contribute to lost sales and excess inventory.
