Demand Planning and Sales Forecasting

Utilizing the Demand Planning application, you can define the various aggregation levels for forecasting by location, customer and product to easily create and manage forecasts on weekly or monthly periods using sales history from Ross ERP.  In the event of abnormal demand history in ERP, you can make adjustments.  In addition, you can also include or consider historical information from other sources as well.  Utilizing statistical models, Demand Planning automatically determines the best fit model along with seasonality factors for forecasting of future demand.  After the System Forecast has been created you can add adjusts for events like promotions or campaigns, as well as field and customer feedback for new stores and products.  You can also compare the system forecast to customer or sales provided forecasts.  Each Sales Manager or Sales Person can view their portion of the forecast by customer or location and provide feedback as well.
