    The de facto standard is Lanham Demand Planning if I assume that you are looking for Inventory forecasting and not pure financial forecasting. lanahamassoc.com.

    We use Lanham's Demand Planning and it does a great job of inventory forecasting.  As Jim mentioned, it does a lot more also!

    Another solution you could take a look at is from SmartSoftware:  https://smartcorp.com/partners-epicor-netsuite-sap-oracle-nav/

    Thank you Jim!  I thought you'd say that! We are making recommendations on behalf of a client so aim to offer up a couple of options.

    Two I'd recommend looking at are STOCKIQ and NETSTOCK.  Both well supported.

    Will 2nd StockIQ, we're in the process of implementing that right now. It's a pretty heavy robust program if you're looking for a complete MRP program (and I will be honest we didn't check out too many options it was internal NAV MRP or this).

    I've looked at Forecast X, it appears to be very full featured and reasonably priced but I have not implemented it for anyone.
    It's worth a look though.

    Looks like you have a lot to chose from already, but a lot of my clients run Forecast X, and we have had a bit of luck with Demand Works Product called Smoothie.
