NETSTOCK enhances its forecast engine functionality

NETSTOCK enhances its forecast engine functionality

Many factors come into play when looking at supply and demand and the accuracy of forecast calculations. The market landscape is forever changing - changes in trends, politics, economics, natural and human-made disasters all affect inventory forecasting. Some have a positive effect and some not, and regardless of what type of supply chain business you manage, there will be an effect of some sort.

At NETSTOCK, we believe that every company deserves the right to survive during challenging times, and it's our mission and responsibility to provide inventory planners with the right tools to achieve that. Our development team has been working hard to add extra functionality to the new forecast engine that we launched in December 2019 to help our customers prepare smarter, more accurate forecasts. You can read the full related product update here.

We’re pleased to announce the additional functionality available now:

Group seasonal forecasting article

Multi item manual forecasting article

We believe these additional features will have a significant impact on forecast accuracy, and we look forward to seeing the benefits that our customers will derive.

Our developers haven’t stopped there.  COMING SOON :

  • Forecast uploads and downloads
  • Forecast disaggregation
