CHICAGO, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cabot Creamery has selected John Galt's Atlas Planning Suite as their enterprise demand planning software system. Cabot joins a long list of dairy providers that use the Atlas Planning Suite as part of their demand planning process, including Kemps, Organic Valley, Saputo, and many more.
Cabot had previously used the ForecastX Wizard from John Galt to produce accurate statistical forecasts and build their planning process, but they needed to move beyond spreadsheets to support further growth. Cabot chose Atlas Planning over several competitors due to its superior statistical forecast accuracy, its powerful data warehouse, and its unique Event Manager that allows Cabot to account for promotions and other unique circumstances.
"John Galt has been a good partner to us, and they understand our industry," says Anne Lamere, Information Services Business Analyst at Cabot Creamery. "With Atlas, we are going to be able to keep their statistical expertise but also manage our process more efficiently. We're excited to get our hands on the software."
"Given the nature of their products and promotional demand, food industries face unique planning challenges," says Anne Omrod, President & CEO of John Galt Solutions. "Cabot is just the latest dairy company to take advantage of the power of Atlas Planning to solve these challenges. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with Cabot Creamery."
