Value for Money

Prior to Vanguard software, we have been using a massive spreadsheet which we populated sales data, demand forecast, production build plan/requirement manually. This task was enormous with constant corrections due to human errors. Vanguard literally put us at easy with 100% data accuracy and built-in automatic uploads with future flexibility was a plus. Our global planning process has a better reputation and we expanded vanguard training to different departments and manufacturing sites.

Pros

Very easy to use
High accuracy
Built in future flexibility
Customized to our company needs
Full control of our data
Free annual refresher training
Free customer support

Cons

It would be nice to have Manufacturing Execution System (MES) model.

Advice to Others

If you ever need better predictability of customers trends, zero manual calculations, high accuracy of data, planning stability, automated planning processes
then Vanguard is your best option.

We have used Vanguard's platform for Demand Planning for over a year now. It allows novice users to be very effective in no time at all. It is a great platform for organizations of a variety of sizes. It is very easy to use. We were live in a few weeks. Their support and services team are a pleasure to work with.

Pros
