The 64 bit Prophecy and the 32 bit Prophecy are built from the same code base - so 32 bit users can continue using the 32 bit version or upgrade with no change in forecasting experience, other than everything running noticeably faster!||View|

This enhancement lets you, for example, instantly pull in all products with a sale or forecast in current year, or with less than n weeks stock (subject to weeks stock data availability), or where forecast versus actual for last period was outside a set percentage.||View|
