    • "Having worked in the field for 10 years and having had working experience with four other major forecasting and planning solution vendors, I chose a new route with McConnell Chase and give McConnell Chase an A+. We had an ambitious go-live schedule and they met it spot on. Our 2008 implementation of their FD6 solution has a ten-level hierarchy with 30,000 SKUs, 5 major markets, and 45 distribution centers. Their solution's speed and ability to configure are awesome. Their competence is off the charts, and their turnaround time in providing for our special requests has been terrific. We had a healthy concern because McConnell Chase is a small company, but that concern is long gone."

    • Thanks for the FD software.
    • We found that it worked well with virtually no problems after installation despite some heavy customization required by our site. When minor problems did arise, mostly from users improperly using the system, you responded quickly to help us resolve the difficulty.
    • Though we did not use all features included in the FD software, those features that we did use helped us to make better forecast decisions.
    • To put this letter in proper perspective, I should state that in using the FD software we had close to 50,000 parts in our item master. The FD software handled that huge volume flawlessly. In addition, several users of FD requested some specialized reports. Thanks for building those reports Joe!

    • FD was an important piece in helping us improve our forecast accuracy from 85% in '94 to 97% in '97, and was the last piece in the MRP puzzle for us.  By adding FD, we were able to close the loop on MRP providing us with a level of supply and demand management we had not previously been able to obtain.

    • "I have found FD to be extremely flexible in helping our company forecast product and it's ability to factor in seasonality is one of the products greatest strengths. The nature of our products require flexibility to forecast at multiple product levels and the most appropriate forecasting methodology varies by product and FD gives us the flexibility to meet these needs. I also like the fact you can compare multiple future forecasts by month to historical demand data all on one screen, which gives me greater comfort in the forecasts that FD is recommending. And where appropriate, if I don't like the forecast FD recommends it is very easy to manually override the FD forecast.
    • Although I am not able to devote enough time in forecasting to take advantage of all of FDs capabilities, almost each time I use it I learn something new that helps me to produce better forecasts. In sum, I feel FD is an extremely valuable forecasting tool."
