ODP is phased-out but upgrades are available to the current install base.

Demantra is comprised of a set of web-enabled applications that support a broad range of planning processes from Sales Forecasting and Sales & Operations Planning to Promotion Planning & Optimisation and Trade Deduction Management. Demantra comes with a pre-configured (“out-of-the-box”) setup though it can easily be customised to suit individual business needs.
ODP and Demantra are Forecasting tools provide end-user interfaces that are intuitive and fully configurable and can provide your planners with an application that actually delivers value: enabling prioritisation, reducing manual forecasting effort, improving accuracy, increasing supply chain efficiency and creating happier planners and that means better buying power, lower safety stock, reduced leadtimes and increased margin!
Forecasting: it’s not just about the number – it’s about everything that goes on around the number.
