CHICAGO, IL (August 4, 2014) – John Galt Solutions announced today that Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF), a leading provider of high-performance brake, clutch & transmission applications, has chosen the Atlas Planning Suite from John Galt to drive their demand planning process.

CBF sought a tool that would enable a sophisticated demand forecasting process, rooted in powerful statistical techniques and with the power to grow beyond it. For CBF, Atlas Planning offered both the world’s most powerful statistical engine, but also unparalleled flexibility to grow with their expanding demand planning process. CBF also sought a powerful reporting engine that could track their forecast assumptions and accuracy, which Atlas Planning provides.

John Galt’s track record of successful implementations with CBF’s ERP system also boosted their confidence. The powerful data warehouse in Atlas Planning offered the ability to deliver data in any format needed and promised an easy and quick integration. John Galt’s consultants also proved their expertise to CBF, delivering valuable insights during the selection process and demonstrating a deep knowledge of CBF’s market and challenges.
