See the effects of changes instantly

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We have recently made a big change to Prophecy that allows us to view products broken down into their component parts. The support team at Prophecy knew exactly what we wanted to do and helped us achieve it - They didn't rest until it was working! This change has saved us hours and hours of work.

Pros:

What the sales team like the most is the fact that you can see the effect of any changes you make instantly. Prophecy is so quick that it allows you to enter a scenario and see what this means to your business instantly. As an analyst, I love the fact that it is so compatible with Excel.

Cons:

I can't think of anything that I or the sales team don't like about this product.

Great Forecasting System

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: The work flow tool has been integrated with our Business cycle, everyone in the business knows when forecasts are due & when Prophecy will be locked. This has allowed us to taker control of the forecast to ensure we have the right information at the right time.

Pros:

Before Prophecy our business was using an Excel spreadsheets as its forecasting tool, Prophecy allowed us to collate all the forecast into one place, this not only aided us in running our S&OP cycle but information was clearer & we had a greater control over the forecast than ever before.

Cons:

At the time when we first implemented Prophecy there was no system generated forecast this has since been updated in later versions.

Prophecy: A fantastic Tool

5.0 7 years ago

Comments: Have used Prophecy for a number of years now - which we have connected to our invoicing/ stock system accordingly - with the assistance of Peter. This system is certainly a positive tool for our company, when forecasting nearly 100+ SKUs of finished products - all of which have different lead times. Would certainly recommend a serious look and demonstration of this forecasting system. Customer service is without doubt, second to none !

Pros:

Easy to use / straight forward screen layouts on day to day work. Can be easily connected to other invoicing systems.

Cons:

Can be slightly complicated to initially setup - however, the support from Customer services will assist all the way

Great tool!

5.0 5 years ago

Pros:

Prophecy is a simple and straightforward tool that allows you to see the instant impact of changes made on the business. Also, the customer support you receive is exceptional.

Cons:

If I am being EXTREMELY picky, the font size is slightly on the small side!
