Simpson Associates Demand Forecasting

Forecast and report demand efficiently and effectively, to improve performance and gain reliable and accurate predictions for the future of your organisation.

What is the Simpson Associates Demand Forecasting Solution?

Demand forecasting solutions help organisations understand how demand for their services is likely to change in the future, in order to make informed decisions around planning and allocation of resources.

Without a way of forecasting demand, we often see organisations relying on experienced employees to make judgement-based decisions based on historic data. Whilst this can be effective to a degree, forecasting demand will allow you to make objective and data-based decisions to supplement human decision-making.

This will then allow your organisation to make informed choices around planning and allocation of resources, meaning you get the most out of your resources and can work on impactful projects efficiently.

Benefits of our Demand Forecasting solution:

By knowing future demand patterns, you can enhance efficiency, ultimately saving costs, time and reducing operational risks.

With insights into future demand trends, your orgaisation can adjust their production capacity, schedule, and resource allocation accordingly.

You can drill down to a granular level on your Power BI reports to aggregate trends and explore your data in a new way.

Demand forecasting provides valuable insights for strategic decision-making, giving you a competitive edge.

Simpson Associates provided us with the expertise to see us through the design and the implementation phases and potential problems that we hit and got us through those. But they also understood our needs as a charity, the components that make up our data warehouse come partly from Microsoft, partly from other companies like Civica and Simpson Associates provided the glue to help us bring those together and get the best out of them.
