Lokad is not only providing hosted forecasting services, we also continuously monitor the forecasts accuracy for every single account that has been populated with time-series data (such as the sales data provided by the Lokad add-ons).
The purpose of those ever-going monitoring operations is first to detect early any issue with our algorithms, but ultimately, the purpose is also to improve the overall forecasting accuracy either by tweaking / improving our algorithms to better match our customer data; or by introducing new algorithms to handle more accurately specific situations.
Care a lot about accuracy but not ready to integrate forecasting in your daily operations? Upload your data now and revert your Lokad account to Free (that way you won’t get charged). By uploading your data now, you make it possible for the Lokad staff to start improving our forecasting technology taking into account the specific needs expressed by your business data.
