Futurion is still around......They had a booth at the APICS conference in 
Kansas City last October. The web address is:

http://www.futurcast.com/

I also liked what they were doing, and at a reasonable cost.

     Jeff,

     We took a good hard look at Futurion's offering a couple years ago, and
     really liked it.   It fit our requirements very well, web-based, very
     flexible, integrated.   There were two reasons we didn't acquire
     it.    1)
     Budget was cut (sigh), and 2) My backer in Sales and Marketing resigned.

     I thought they had an excellent solution, for a reasonable cost.

     Unfortunately, I can't find them on the web anymore!  I don't know if
     they
     merged, vanished, or I just can't locate them!

         Hey group

         We are looking to improve our forecasting methods.

         We currently look at sales history and trend , average the last few
     months
         and use this figure.

         We'd like to explore a more statistical method.  If you are using a
         package or would suggest one, we'd like to hear about it.   We would
     also
         like as seamless as possible interface to MAPICS XA.

         Thanks in advance for any information.

         Mapics Consultant
