Deliver faster, more accurate demand forecasts for your supply chain.

Whether creating demand generation or other time-series forecasts, leading organizations are asking how they can build faster forecasts, improve their accuracy and better involve their business teams — and the answers don’t lie in massive spreadsheets or overly complex software. In today’s sense-and-respond world, you need to forecast for an uncertain future while staying agile in the present. That’s how you leapfrog your competition.

Put advanced analytics and machine learning-powered forecasts in the hands of business users.

FICO® Forecaster is a comprehensive and tailored machine learning-based analysis of your demand and supply chain, designed to help you achieve your demand forecasting objectives. It employs a robust yet flexible set of algorithms that compete for the best accuracy across your SKU hierarchy for optimal inventory management, forecast demand, and demand planning.

Forecaster uses machine learning to amplify the power of your business acumen by giving planners the ability to sense and respond to changing conditions and anticipate future demand. Enhance your demand forecasting methods by enabling users to run alternative what-if scenarios as desired, and create practical, usable demand forecasts. It considers relevant forecast drivers and customer demand, and manages and predicts growing complexity and risk. Forecaster is scaled to operationalize for both automation (no-touch) and expert guidance (as needed). Generating a practical forecast in time to matter, it gives you the tools to forecast demand, ahead of the competition.

Why FICO? FICO Forecaster achieves what other analysis and demand forecasting tools cannot accomplish. First, our platform for making advanced machine learning algorithms readily accessible to non-technical users — FICO® Xpress Insight — offers an easy-to-use GUI, scenario comparison, and what-if analysis, and facilitates collaboration across the supply chain. Second, FICO Forecaster allows access to more than a dozen market-leading forecasting models and algorithms, integrated and meta-tuned based on extensive FICO analytic experience and historical data.
