Oliver Wight, AIMMS and Districon form partnership to offer complete supply chain optimization solution
Leading supply chain optimization specialists Oliver Wight have teamed up for the first time ever with optimization technology and prescriptive modelling specialists AIMMS and logistics solutions consultancy Districon to deliver a revolutionary supply chain optimization offering.
Organisations are set to gain a unique, integrated supply chain optimization solution from the fusion of expertise between these three leading practitioners. Oliver Wight transfers knowledge on best practice design and optimization, while AIMMS and Districon join forces to provide state-of-the art practical so-lutions for maximising value from the supply chain.
Les Brookes, CEO of Oliver Wight EAME says, “Modern day organisations need the capability to re-spond quickly and intelligently to the ever-changing supply chain challenges at a strategic, tactical and operational level. End-to-end optimization is essential to extract the best possible value from the sup-ply chain. This initiative allows customers to transform the entire supply chain and leverage the syner-gies between people, processes and tools to achieve that next level of value.”
The partnership comes as all three organisations are seeing an increase in demand for a total service offering. “Our customers are increasingly realizing that to reap the full benefits of our advanced optimi-sation technology, they need to have the right processes in place. This partnership will allow us to cov-er all aspects of integrated business planning, from processes to practical applications” says AIMMS CEO Gijs Dullaert.
“We are now able to offer a unique and holistic integrated supply chain solution tailored to meet the client’s specific needs,” adds Districon Managing Director Jack Pool. “We are delighted to be working with Oliver Wight and AIMMS on this initiative to help clients drive increased revenue and profitability.”
The three organisations are kick-starting their new relationship with a webinar, ‘Influence customer demand; optimize your commercial activities through Integrated Business Planning’ on 20th May 2014. For more information visit http://business.aimms.com/news-events/webinars/
