Thanks for the update!   I wish we could have gotten their product.   I was
totally sold on it, and so was the sales manager.   But Corporate pulled
the funding for the project.....   And Chris was who we worked with.

Glad they are still around, I thought they had a superior product!

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.

   Jeff Snyder,  CPIM
   Mapics Consultant
