Accurate Statistical Forecast
Inaccurate Forecasts might be even more dangerous than absence of a forecasts at all.
Many forecasting products use “model fit” to determine which forecasting algorithm to use. The issue with this approach is that it promotes models that may look great on current data, instead of making accurate predictions on future data. This is called “overfitting”. That is why, GMDH Streamline uses special algorithms to create models that thoroughly analyse the data and generates the statistical models on the existing periods and provide more accurate forecasting predictions.
Forecast Approval System
Do you need to collaborate with your colleagues to develop your forecasts?
Our forecast approval system provides you an opportunity to manage your forecasts with others, allowing each SKU to have a status of Approved, Unapproved, or Needs Attention. Approved SKUs are locked from further changes.
Do you need to know your sales forecast for your next period(s)?
Streamline is able to import sales prices as well as sales history, allowing revenue forecasts align with demand forecasts.
Flexible Manual Adjustments
How do you make your forecast responsive to additional factors?
For many businesses, the final forecast is a consensus between statistical forecasts and management/planner assumptions.
GMDH Streamline provides an environment where forecasts can be managed, reevaluated, and modified based on additional information available internally by your management team, or provided by your vendors and suppliers.
New Products Forecasting
Do you have new units that replace discontinued products or any very new commodity with limited market history?
Not a big deal ! GMDH Streamline can link such profiles to the sales history of similar, existing products (substitutions) or set seasonal coefficients. This allows you to get a reliable forecast for those fresh items as well.
