Comments: Prior to Vanguard software, we have been using a massive spreadsheet which we populated sales data, demand forecast, production build plan/requirement manually. This task was enormous with constant corrections due to human errors. Vanguard literally put us at easy with 100% data accuracy and built-in automatic uploads with future flexibility was a plus. Our global planning process has a better reputation and we expanded vanguard training to different departments and manufacturing sites.

Pros: Very easy to use High accuracy Built in future flexibility Customized to our company needs Full control of our data Free annual refresher training Free customer support

Cons: It would be nice to have Manufacturing Execution System (MES) model.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you ever need better predictability of customers trends, zero manual calculations, high accuracy of data, planning stability, automated planning processes then Vanguard is your best option.
