Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes company and a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), has been awarded the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership in the food & beverage (F&B) industry globally. Based on in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research, Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in leadership, technological innovation, customer service and product development.
To receive this leadership award a company must demonstrate excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers, with a focus on improving the return on investment. The recipient consistently demonstrates a keen understanding of market needs and challenges and provides innovative solutions to address them.
Frost & Sullivan determined that Quintiq has demonstrated these qualities through its commitment to delivering value above and beyond its competitors by developing one of the most collaborative and integrated supply chain solutions with functionalities that help customers across industries adapt to the latest technological advances. As a result, customers are able to scale easily, grow quickly, and update their models as their business evolves with market trends. It optimizes planning from the demand stage all the way through final delivery. This commitment clearly highlights Quintiq’s significant flexibility and unique value proposition.
F&B manufacturers face unique planning challenges while trying to drive efficiency, whether it's meeting evolving demands, ensuring the timely availability of products or complying with strict regulations. Quintiq understands the supply chain challenges across all planning horizons and has effectively used its 20 years of experience to address them, deliver value to its customers and secure a competitive advantage in the F&B industry. The company has a successful track record of implementing production, business, operational and tactical planning solutions across several plants, enabling customers to make their plants operational as quickly as possible while minimizing their payback period and maximizing the return on investment.
“Consumer expectations are rapidly evolving and radically changing the way manufacturers, suppliers, and transporters of F&B products operate. These changes require supply chains to be agile, resilient, and highly responsive. As a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization software, Quintiq offers solutions that ensure supply chains meet these sophisticated business requirements,” said David Kenneson, general manager of Quintiq North America. “We are honored to be recognized for our work in the F&B industry and look forward to raising the bar even higher in the U.S. and around the world.”
Every business has its supply chain planning puzzles. Some of those puzzles are large. Some are complex. Some seem impossible to solve. Since 1997, Quintiq has been solving each of those puzzles using a single supply chain planning & optimization software platform. Today, approximately 12,000 users in over 80 countries rely on Quintiq software to plan and optimize workforces, logistics and production.
