A bit about Smart Software: Headquartered in Belmont, Massachusetts, we are a best-in-class provider of demand forecasting, planning and inventory optimization solutions. Our flagship product, SmartForecasts®, provides customers with a clear view of likely future demand, and the safety stocks and reorder points required to achieve targeted service level goals. SmartForecasts delivers unparalleled forecast accuracy, enabling clients to achieve service goals with substantially less inventory. Our statistical forecasting methods support all demand types, and include a unique, patented approach to intermittent demand, the seemingly random consumption of products most common with service parts.
