Maximize Your Supply Chain Value With Optimization

Navigate complexity and unpredictability with a decision-support solution configured to perfectly fit your business, improving efficiency and reducing costs.

Adding the logic to optimization

Whether it is long-term workforce capacity planning, deciding the optimal route for logistics planning, or determining the right blend of ingredients to maintain product quality and taste, optimization is a valuable tool for effectively managing complexity and creating optimal plans.

For over a decade, we’ve worked with many Fortune 500 companies, and we’ve helped them solve their planning puzzles with optimization. Here’s a sneak peek at our process, which involves three key areas:

Maturity Scan

Before starting any successful optimization project, we ask our customers – what’s a good plan for you? This leads to discussions involving – identifying the right data in the system, securing buy-in from planners and stakeholders, and agreeing upon the right KPIs for the business.

Perfect Fit

The optimizer should deliver results that you trust. This means the solution you acquire needs to be implemented correctly the first time around. Additionally, optimization can’t be 60% or 80% fit. It must be designed to fit perfectly with your specific planning puzzles and operations.

KPI-based Value

Real value is derived from measured value. If you don’t have proof that your optimizer delivers on the KPIs that drive your business one month, one year, or two years after going live, how can you trust its results? You can’t! When we take up an optimization project, it isn’t complete until we provide that proof.

Helping our customers achieve real value

“In all the benchmarks, they showed an improvement of 5%. For us in logistics, a 5% increase in the plan’s quality is huge because the margins are not super high. Even in the dry goods market, our biggest area, we saw a 10% improvement in that benchmark.”
