Software Applications

We are developing several Excel® spreadsheet Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) business applications that we plan on selling. If interested in either of them, please contact us.

Below is a brief description of each application:

1) Location Meister ($49 USD) – Based upon the “Center of Gravity” location method (i.e. latitude and longitude), the application is aimed at small to medium sized (SME’s) businesses who need to determine the best location for their next distribution or fullfillment center based upon the demand for each existing retail/customer locations (can also be used to help determine retail location selection).

2) Forecast Anything ($99 USD) – Using a proprietary, yet simple “best method” form of forecasting, it will help small “mom and pop” retailers/e-tailers and small wholesalers/distributors to forecast future demand requirements and then net forecasts against current inventory balances to quickly determine future purchasing/re-ordering requirements.
