Demand Planning & Demand Process improvement:-

" I want to thank you for your assistance in the quick implementation of the Forecasting software. I have worked with small companies and large multinational Fortune 100 companies both using and managing forecasting software. It is remarkable that the implementation of the software took only one month and offered outstanding accuracy in results. This is by far the easiest forecasting tool I have come across and saves many hours of monthly workload. Demand Planning LLC staff were readily available to assist with questions and set up. In short, both senior management and I are very impressed with the implementation, service, and results. I wish I had found you sooner!"

"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!"
