How did Data Profits develop the program?

With actual users. Our Supply Chain Management tools were developed with years of interviews and testing by retail and wholesale executives, analysts, buyers, replenishment and allocation managers.

This research was then reviewed by some of the top business and math professors in the country. Our goal was to keep the user experience familiar and easy to use with the best math and science happening behind the screens.

User Groups

It is a known fact, if you want people to use a product, get their ideas before you build the product.

Get the math right

It is stunning to review how many forecasting and planning solutions have math based on just one or two scenarios. Why, many systems were developed by IT guys and the technology of even 5 – 7 years ago couldn’t run fast enough to deliver the answers in time.

Forecasting and planning processes had to be simplified to keep processing times low (cost) within reason. Today, iKIS by Data Profits has leveraged many different user groups and college math and business professors to bring every advantage of speed, accuracy and results to our users.
