Supply Chain Optimization in 2007 and Beyond
2007 begins with continually increased opportunities for manufacturing companies of all sizes to reap the benefits of Supply Chain Optimization. Optimization technology is truly attaining the long-held high expectations for use in the business community. Advances in the technology and data availability are making this possible. Supply Chain optimization technology solutions are fully deployable in accessible, inexpensive and easy to use software.
Profit Point is well positioned to take advantage of these market trends. We have continued to re-invigorate and expand our partnerships with leading Supply Chain solution providers. We are the leading solution provider for the principal optimization software companies, including Frontline Systems, the provider of Excel® Solver® and Dash Optimization. We have developed high-value targeted software for business processes where the standard solutions are inadequate. We have established deep long-term relationships with many of our earliest clients, including Coca-Cola, Rohm and Haas and Bridgestone-Firestone. And most importantly, we have continued to invest heavily in our team of employees to ensure we have the most experienced, committed, and knowledgeable group of supply chain and optimization experts.
As more people come to realize the opportunity created when applying optimization technology to their business, both the opportunities and expectations will grow. For the first time ever, business data, the fuel of optimization, is abundantly available and accessible. Secondly, businesses have come to rely on technology for profitability in a more integrated and comprehensive way than ten years ago. Together, these two realities are converging to create an environment where optimization solutions must become a part of core business systems. I expect that the next ten years will be to supply chain optimization solutions what the past ten years has been for supply chain processes: a time of unbounded excitement, enormous opportunity, and profitable growth.
Whether you have been a long time friend, partner, or client of ours, or are meeting us for the first time, I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to share some of this excitement together in the years to come.
