ALT−C Systems signs Remarketing Agreement in Mexico
MONTREAL - June 30, 1997 -
ALT−C Systems Inc. announces the signing of a Marketing
agreement with Sistemas Integrados S.A. (SISA) of Mexico City. Sistemas
Integrados will sell and support ALT−C Systems' TimeTrends®
forecasting software in Mexico and Central America. Sistemas Integrados
provide manufacturing and ERP-related computer software services, consulting,
programming and support to a wide range of customers in Mexico. The major
product line serviced by SISA is MFG PRO from QAD.
Sistemas Integrados chose TimeTrends as a "best-of-breed"
forecasting software to integrate with other manufacturing modules.
The recently released TimeTrends Forecast Warehouse
module's Open Systems data structure (ODBC-compliant), Year 2000
and Internet capability were important factors in this choice.
It is designed for Sales/Marketing, Logistics and Finance users.
Utilizing 32-bit code written in Visual C++, TimeTrends®
runs under Windows 95 or Windows NT in stand-alone or network
Designed as a relational database system supporting multi-dimensional
queries, TimeTrends can store not only individual
item histories, forecasts, overrides, promotional information,
annotations and such but also different versions of the same,
along with accuracy calculations and user-defined fields containing
data replicated from the host system. Users can execute pre-defined
or ad-hoc SQL queries into the database to create custom views
of the data, as well as create their own calculations such as
days' supply, inventory stockturns, standard cost of forecast
error, pro-forma revenue change and more.
A TimeTrends forecasting database can be created
electronically by querying any ODBC-compliant corporate or external
database, whether this be an Enterprise system (ERP), MRP system,
data warehouse or other, using database environments such as Oracle,
SQL Server, and others. Forecast results from TimeTrends
can be written back to the Master Production Schedule (MPS) of
an MRP / ERP system, scheduling / simulation systems, corporate
data warehouse or other network applications.

System, sold directly or through VARS, contact:
