Smart Software Inc., a company that provides demand forecasting, planning and inventory optimization solutions, has begun shipping Version 7 of its flagship product, SmartForecasts. This latest version includes powerful new conversion capabilities as well as embedded parameter tools for further automating the forecasting process by reducing the number of repetitive planning tasks. These new features help ensure more accurate forecasting and inventory planning results during every forecasting session, and enable better cross-functional use of these results among corporate departments.
SmartForecasts 7's new, powerful conversion capabilities enable users to dynamically switch between forecasts in units and dollars, or any other defined set of measures and conversion factors. These features increase planning flexibility and allow more effective collaboration to take place between departments. In addition, SmartForecasts 7 speeds up the forecasting process, especially when thousands of items must be forecasted on a regular basis. Users can pre-specify and embed parameter values, such as varying lead times and service levels, for thousands of individual items to be used each time forecasts are generated. The forecast and selection parameters, as well as conversion capabilities, are available for both database and file-based systems.
