Collaborative forecasting software has reached the Australian market with the launch of DSE (Demand Solutions Enterprise), which is said to introduce levels of visibility and functionality never before seen in supply chain software.

“DSE is the next generation in forecasting - the glue that sales operations and planning managers have been looking for,” says Thomas Gielow, global vice president, technology, Demand Management Solutions . “DSE creates a completely integrated view of the supply chain for all levels of the organisation, allowing users to interpret data in ways never before possible.”

DSE is a specialised collaborative forecasting program which allows users to integrate data from ERP and other sources, creating shared information streams that provide greater control of forecasting, inventory and planning processes.
