We have had a great experience, and I would highly recommend Atlas to anyone who is looking to automate their forecasting or order generation processes.

Pros

The software can be easily adapted to do almost anything related to forecasting and order generation.The support we receive is also best in class, and the cost is extremely reasonable.

Cons

The UI can take some time to get used to, and documentation for the software's built-in functions could be better.

I'm pretty new to John Galt but have a lot of demand planning experience and experience in other tools such as SAP APO and Manugistics. Overall there are some good things and some not so good things I've found in working with the John Galt system. As far as history loads, cleansing, and statistical forecast generation it seems fairly standard but to I've found it can be difficult to try and manage forecasts at multiple levels. As I am new, a lot of it may be the configuration of the tool rather than the tool itself but I am still trying to sort that out.

Pros

- Fairly easy to use
- Easy to customize views
- With regular history, the statistical modeling seems to do a decent job

Cons

- Managing model parameters is more difficult and less intuitive than I have seen in other systems
- The database sits outside of our company/our control so trying to troubleshoot data issues is complicated
- There doesn't seem to be a way to group together a subset of items, for example, to update the forecast at once. Without having to create a new hierarchy. If there is a way, again it is no intuitive
- The manual and online help are not very helpful and don't seem to help answer questions I have

More organized review of sales and mix forecasts, with improved long range planning capabilities. The automation and capabilities of the software enable us to optimize our inventories, with less of the wrong items, and more of the right ones. Our inventory has decreased 8% through the first quarter of 2018, with further reductions expected, and no negative impact to our customer service levels.

Pros

Our company sells configured make to order products. The Atlas software is flexible enough to work with our various sales models and options, and our use of product hierarchies allows use of the forecast scenario to plan sales at a high family level, and use historical option mixes to plan models and grades of materials, which feeds the inventory scenario. Any volume or mix adjustments then plan up and down the hierarchy automatically. Once the inventory requirements are created, Atlas recommends order placement, expedites, defers, and cancellations, and generates useful action and alert messages for our planner/buyers.

Cons

Atlas is often designed around user requirements, so there's not a standardized user manual that documents all the processes and steps to use the Atlas system. The Atlas implementation consultants can provide training and some work instructions, it's up to the customer to generate formal documentation for use by current and future system users.
