Chicago IL., March 7, 2016 - John Galt Solutions has announced its 2016 John Galt University Customer Conference being held August 18-19, 2016 in Chicago, IL. The event will provide advanced education and training in forecasting, and demand and supply planning for customers using John Galt’s software, the ForecastX Wizard and Atlas Planning Suite. In addition, the conference will offer coaching for executives and managers on the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process and supply chain planning in general.

The event is designed to deliver valuable instruction for the entire supply chain planning team, from forecasters and demand planners to supply chain executives. John Galt will bring together a mix of industry thought leaders and experts, teaching on a wide variety of subjects such as statistics, sales forecasting and collaboration, executive reporting, rough cut capacity planning, and finite scheduling. Plus, John Galt Xperts® will provide exclusive instruction on the ForecastX Wizard and Atlas Planning Suite solutions.

As one of the primary benefits of the conference, attendees will meet and discuss best practices with peers and other John Galt customers to garner important insights. This forum allows customers to interact openly with each other along with John Galt partners to help facilitate these discussions. They will also actively participate in a software road map discussion, voting on the features they most want to see included in upcoming versions of the ForecastX Wizard and Atlas Planning Suite.

“We had a great event last year and are looking forward to seeing everyone again this summer,” explained Anne Omrod, president & CEO of John Galt Solutions. “We love to hear from our customers. It helps us craft our solutions for their needs, and we help ensure their success. We want to be their partner in demand and supply planning.“

John Galt University 2016 will be held at the historic Palmer House Hotel in downtown Chicago, just a block from Millennium Park.
