Easy Systems Integration
The primary input into Forecast Pro is historical sales data, although other relevant information such as unit of measure conversions, explanatory variables and other forecasts can be imported into the application. The primary output from Forecast Pro is typically monthly or weekly demand forecasts, which often are fed directly into ERP/MRP systems to drive other planning processes. Data input and output are facilitated through either a simple file interface (Excel, CSV or text) or through a direct database connection (ODBC). With more than 12,000 organizations using Forecast Pro, users have integrated Forecast Pro with virtually every system under the sun.
