Sales Forecasting, Demand Planning and Inventory Management
ESCAPING THE EXCEL TRAP
Because of the individuality of their planning processes users are often forced to construct monstrous excel designs that get more and more difficult or impossible to maintain.
Data have to be gathered at the end of a period, changes can only be made from a central position etc.
The only way out seems to be an individual software that especially has to be created.
With Wilcon PSI and Forecast you use a directly applicable system that is easy to maintain and very flexible, so that it offers a customized solution particularly for your needs.
