Honest Vendor Ratings – Business Forecast Systems

Introduction

Business Forecast Systems is a small software vendor that has been in forecasting since 1987. Business Forecast Systems is the type of software vendor that we typically recommend to work with. They are very concentrated on their application, and have continually been developing their application ForecastPro for decades. The money buyers spend goes to the actual product and not to marketing hyperbole. They are also privately held.

Quality of Information Provided

Business Forecast Systems provides good quality information during the sales process and in its documentation, blog, etc..

Consulting and Support

However our interactions with them support the fact that they are quite experienced and know their application as well as can advise how to best leverage the application, although we do not have the broad based information from a number of buyers on which to grade Business Forecast Systems.

Business Forecast Systems follows a remote consulting model, identical to the software vendor Demand Works and PlanetTogether where a few number of expert consultants get the application up and working and provide guidance primarily remotely. This means the implementation costs are low, and the consulting value is high. This model is also based upon the software being easy to learn. Business Forecast Systems also occasionally implements through consulting companies.
