Quintiq to reveal the secret to solving the efficiency puzzle at Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, September 10-11

September 4, 2014 | London

Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), today announced that its COO, Arjen Heeres, will be speaking at the upcoming Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London. Quintiq is also a premier sponsor of the event.

In keeping with the conference theme of “Leading the Decade”, Quintiq’s focus will be how companies can find success by aligning supply chain networks with new expectations, market opportunities and technologies. Mr Heeres, will be making a special presentation titled “Big calculations: The key to solving the efficiency puzzle” on Sept. 10, at 2pm. In this presentation, Mr Heeres will demonstrate how organizations have already exploited the potential of big calculations to become more efficient and profitable.

“We can send a message across the world in the blink of an eye, yet many of us still take too long to respond to events in our supply chain. During this presentation, we’ll be demonstrating how big calculations combine speed and knowledge to deliver real-time optimization,” explains Mr Heeres.

The presentation “Big calculations: The key to solving the efficiency puzzle” will identify:

  • The four obstacles to optimization and the five steps to overcoming them
  • Why speed is essential for success
  • Why big data is only half of the value equation
  • How big calculations enable you to make accurate predictions about your supply chain

In addition, at the Gartner Premier Panel discussion on “The technological advances that will catapult supply chains into the next decade”, Quintiq will be represented by John Sookias, VP Supply Chain Solutions.

Quintiq will also host a booth on the main floor of the conference (booth P2), where its experts will be available for one-to-one discussions on supply chain challenges. There will also be demonstrations of the Quintiq software platform’s efficacy.
