SKU Science Review for Aftermarket Parts

Overall very satisfied. Delivered an accurate forecast in an easy to use format as promised. Incredibly pleased with the ability to pinpoint high value items that were difficult to forecast items and deserved a second look. The training and customer support were absolutely fantastic.

Pros

Ease of use. Accuracy of forecasts. Relevant metrics that help make efficient use of forecasters time.

Cons

With a high number of forecasts (100k+), navigating to specific SKU forecast took some time to figure out.

Response from SKU Science

Evolving Demand Planning

Simplifies a lot task related with forecasting and demand planning

Pros

It´s very easy to implement and easy to use.

Cons

Adjusting forecast parameters is not as easy as in other solutions with similar price .

Response from SKU Science

Thank you for your review Alvaro Manuel. Indeed the platform is designed to quickly change forecasts values at any level, but although forecast parameters are visible the idea is not to change them manually since they are automatically updated each new cycle. This may be frustrating for forecast experts, but most of our users don't want to dig into the mathematics of forecast models and rely on the platform to pick the best model.

Budgets - Sku Science

Sku Science has dramatically improved the efficiency and productivity at budget time.

Pros

We use Sku Science to support the budget process. The software enables us to quickly review/change at sku, customer and channel levels. We can also import machine learning forecast as the base forecast which greatly helps in reviewing cycle, pattern and trends.
The support from Sku Science is first class and despite us being in Australia this did not effect the performance.

Cons

The reporting side is certainly the weakest part of the software. Instead of downloading into excel it should be made available to be reviewed in the tool.

Response from SKU Science

Thank you Mark for your review and to highlight the capability of the platform to adjust forecasts at any level quickly. We have addressed your feedback about the reporting to provide a better user experience.

Reliable and Great Customer Service

The customer service provided by SKU Science has been extraordinary and it’s been always available for any question or assistance required to use the tool efficiently.

Pros

SKU Science platform works really well and it is a user friendly, fast, simple and reliable tool, which provides outstanding results comparing to other high priced software and ERPs with forecasting applications.

Cons

Download Forecast reports and data to Excel formats it's been a bit challenging, but our account manager sorted it very quickly.

There is a great opportunity to improve the Dashboard section.

Great customer service, reliable software

Great experience, user friendly and has solved issues we used to have with formulating budgets at different sku levels/aggregations.

Pros

Aggregation was great to be able to make changes by sku at any level of the product heirarchy. This made it much simpler than using excel to be able to reconcile changes without any rounding impacts.
Service level is outstanding all performed remotely.

Cons

Whilst the software met our needs, some improvement to the output reporting would be great.

Response from SKU Science

Thank you for your review Adam. Based on your feedback we have enhanced our reporting capabilities to allow one-click reports where needed.
