DemandCaster helped save our company!

"We couldn't keep track of our forecasts well enough with spreadsheets and we were overstocking and stocking out all over. We tried a couple other solutions, but DemandCaster Forecasting and Planning software finally fixed the pain we were feeling. The ability to forecast by week, by customer - and customize settings to exactly fit our business model - is a godsend. The DemandCaster team is great to work with and have quickly created several options to fit our needs. Their SaaS option makes it easily fit in our budget - and provides better functionality than other systems that cost well over 6 figures. I thoroughly recommend DemandCaster for anyone wanting to forecast and manage inventory better." Alex Fuller, Durham Brands

About Durham Brands

Forecast accuracy has reduced inventory!

"DemandCaster's S&OP Forecasting and Planning software module has made a huge difference in our companies performance. Since we started the process we have have improved our accuracy to within 1% of forecast! DemandCaster's ability to help us quickly visualize and analyze demand patterns from a market segment, company, and part view point has provided a huge improvement in how we understand and manage our business. As a result of this, our standard hours produced to load hours are within one day of being perfectly balanced and we have hit 96% on time for two months in a row even as our inventory has dropped 30% since we started. Its really good to see we can keep things going service wise at these much lower stock levels!" Steve Kase, ASK Power

DemandCaster manages multiple planning scenarios!

"I have worked with the DemandCaster Forecasting and Planning software and the DemandCaster team since April of 2011. I have found the DemandCaster Forecasting and Planning software product to be a great alternative to the larger and more costly demand and supply management solutions. There has not been a planning scenario that DemandCaster hasn’t been able to handle, including complex issues such as providing free issue components to overseas contract manufacturers. The excellent support the DemandCaster team provides are based on real world experiences and the program lets me produce the desired results without a lot of needless complication."
