Assessing Forecasting Solutions

    Hello,

    Recently, my company has been assessing various 3rd-party forecasting software solutions for implementation and we have landed on deciding between two, Slim 4 and Halo BI. I was wondering if anyone had experience with one or both of these products and what there experience was like. Are there any major strengths/weaknesses to each product once put into practice? How has long-term support been from the company? Were there any hiccups linking them to your NAV system? One concern I have is that Halo may be a data overload for our account managers, while Slim 4's exception management approach looks like it may be more streamlined. Any thoughts would be helpful.
