"Mark & his team from Demand Planning LLC did a phenomenal job when they came onsite to help us with our statistical model tuning in SAP. We are now implementing the stat models in our forecasting process, and on our way to increased forecast accuracy. Additionally, we did have some SAP APO system limitations and Mark still managed to find a work around solution to enable the lifecycle planning process for our company. He is an expert in this field, and very resourceful. Our company will be using him for future logistics projects due to the great success we’ve had!"

valuable diagnostic findings for our SIOP team to review and
improve upon. Their work provided a solid baseline process for
us to work from. The Workflow and training documentation are outstanding and they will
serve as a ready reference for the demand planning group. We look forward to working
