It’s one thing to automate data management and forecasting. It’s another to do so with an unrivaled intelligence system. Vanguard Forecast Server has the connectivity and processing power to not only gather and analyze data, but to adapt. This lets you automatically:

  • Detect and respond to cash-flow shifts easily and accurately.
  • Integrate live project data.
  • Flag and factor biases (historical overestimates and under estimates), and bias migrations over time.
  • Apply the optimal – intelligently selected – forecast method to each data forecast. (You can easily override the selected method if you have knowledge that is not reflected in the data. Choose from a library of standard and proprietary forecast methods.).

Forecasts include:

  • Revenue
  • Profit
  • Cash flow
  • Cash balance
  • Inventory
  • Staffing requirements

One Forecast Server™,multiple collaborators:

  • Tap source data directly. Say bye to data dumps and spreadsheet copy-and-paste. Forecast Server pulls straight from your sources, eliminating manual processing, errors, version control issues, and static data. Completed forecasts can then loop directly into your existing ERP system.
  • Drive adoption. Across departments, all users have come to expect an intuitive interface, time-saving automation and relevant reporting (dollars, units, etc.).
  • Exploit internal insight. Our hosted environment and easy-to-use web interface open the forecast to multiple direct contributors – anytime, anywhere, on any browser or device. Automated options require minimal training and almost no statistics experience. Authorized users may alter assumptions, view exceptions, propose changes, build reports, and create “what-if” scenarios using click-and-drop tools, all with a crystal-clear audit trail.
  • Lay bare the process Assign individual or group responsibility for assumptions, groups, families, SKUs, etc. Know who made changes, when, where, and why and explain with certainty how your particular forecast came together.
  • Zero in. Create and share focused-view dashboards for focused-view contributors. Click down into any line item to reveal and review forecast components (sales, sales by item, sales by group or location, inventory, liabilities, taxes, EBIT, EBITDA, depreciation, etc.).
  • Access power. Server-based computing steps beyond your desktop capabilities. Mix and match virtually unlimited groups for unlimited rollups – no delay.
