ToolsGroup Wins Supply Chain Awards for Customer Successes at Hoganas and Cipla Medpro
BOSTON, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — ToolsGroup was recently named a “Great Supply Chain Partner” by SupplyChainBrain and also one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s (SDCE) “100 Great Supply Chain Projects”. Both awards were given for recent customer successes, at Hoganas and Cipla Medpro.
SupplyChainBrain’s 100 Great Supply Chain Partners were decided following a six-month on-line poll in which supply chain professionals were asked to nominate vendors whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance. Winners were selected from hundreds of supply chain management trading partners. The theme of this year’s report was “Strengthening your global network”.
In keeping with the theme, ToolsGroup’s customer Hoganas was recognized for going live with a collaborative demand modeling and forecasting system in 85 countries in only seven months. The system, built with ToolsGroup’s SO99+ and Demand Collaboration Hub software, supports Hoganas’ new S&OP process, has sped up reporting by at least 25 percent, and is on track to support the company’s goals to reduce inventory by ten percent across the board.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive commended ToolsGroup in this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for its leadership in helping customers attain supply chain excellence and produce measurable gains in ROI through cost-cutting and increased efficiency. ToolsGroup’s customer Cipla Medpro was celebrated as an example for its outsourced demand forecasting, inventory and replenishment planning whose SaaS approach was cost effective, low risk and implemented in 30 days.
“We are immensely proud to be recognized alongside our customers in these ‘people’s choice’- style awards. They are further evidence that our ‘Powerfully Simple’ approach to supply chain planning helps customers the world over make substantial business improvements, quickly, without breaking the bank,” said Joseph Shamir, CEO of ToolsGroup.
