Predictive Planning


All Vanguard applications live online, whether on your server or ours. This, by itself, helps streamline deployment and systems integration while opening the door for mobile access – anywhere, anytime, any device. Note that clients who wish to start off in the cloud have the option to eventually bring the platform on premises (or vice versa).


Vanguard-hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) is probably the most cost-effective option for small and mid-size companies. Vanguard SaaS sidesteps additional deployment-related costs and can generate even more savings over time through lower operational and maintenance expenses. Our hosted applications are also easiest to deliver and manage across multiple, and globally distributed work centers.

Cloud clients can put to rest any concerns over availability. Our industry-leading environment delivers 100-percent availability around the world.


Vanguard on-premises deployments appeal to clients with high-velocity internal data, sensitive data, or stringent compliance requirements. Companies with intensive customization needs and highly unique workflow requirements also lean toward on-premises deployment.

More Than A Statistical Forecast Engine

The Vanguard IBP software platform is much more than a statistical forecast engine. It’s a complete platform that combines expert systems technology, advanced analytics, and workforce knowledge and insight for best-possible forecasting and planning.
