Safety Stock and Call Center Calcs v2.3 released

Published on by Joannes Vermorel.

Summer is getting hot these days, so are things within Lokad. We are happy to announce the availability of two new releases:

The last release wave was focusing on reliability and performance through the migration toward our Forecasting SDK. Yet over the last few months we realized that many glitches were dragging people down from time to time, and that a couple of handy features were missing.

Thus for the present release, we have been focusing on ease of use, adding polish virtually everywhere in the apps, from the installer up to report edition.

Safety Stock Calculator 2.3 features:

  • support for adding contextual information to events (improves quality of the forecasts);
  • support for horizontal Excel layout and for importing from native XLSX files (Excel 2007 format);
  • ability to mass-update selected columns and cells with custom value;
  • data uploads to Lokad servers should be faster on machines with .NET 3.5;
  • numerous UI improvements and minor fixes;
  • improvements in extensibility model that makes it easier for developers to add new custom adapters and share them;
  • improved update and deployment system allowing faster delivery of new features and fixes.

The app can be installed by launching this MSI package. No need to uninstall the previous version.

  • numerous UI improvements and minor fixes;
  • improved update and deployment system allowing faster delivery of new features and fixes to you.

The app could be installed by launching this MSI package. Again, no need to uninstall the previous version.

Yet, v2.3 isn't our final word. Behind the scene, our research team (as always) keeps working hard on developing and evolving business intelligence powering our forecasting services.

Also, we have plenty of ideas to further improves those apps. Don't hesitate to drop your own requests into the feature list.
