Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes company and global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), has been recognized as Information Technology Provider of the Year by American Metal Market. The recognition was granted for best-in-class performance and announced at the AMM Awards 2018 for Steel Excellence in New York. The 2018 program, now in its ninth year, recognizes world-class innovation and excellence in steel and related industries for companies throughout the steel supply chain and by key partners to the industry.

Quintiq has proven to be the solution provider of choice for many of the world’s largest primary and secondary smelters, casting facilities, hot and cold mills, extrusion facilities and service centers. Its award-winning supply chain planning software is purpose-built to ensure ease and speed of implementation, stability and support in a solution that is fully aligned to the unique business rules and processes of its customers.

Companies select Quintiq for its ability to handle complex operations and provide a 100%-fit solution. In the metals industry specifically, this includes the ability to calculate material reservations based on characteristics, optimize hot charging for energy efficiency and combine orders to improve productivity and increase yield.

These key capabilities have resulted in significant benefits to Quintiq’s metals customers, all of whom have reported ROI across their operations. This includes a 10% reduction in production cycles for FNsteel, a 15% to 20% decrease in planned stock slabs for Ruukki, and a lead time reduction from 12 to 2-4 weeks for Symetal. These success stories, Quintiq’s methodology and its best practices in the metals industry have earned Quintiq this recognition from AMM.

 "We are extremely proud of this award from AMM," said Jonathan Lin, Director of Americas at Quintiq. "This is proof of our expertise in supplying best-of-class planning solutions to our steel customers, and encapsulates what makes us the solution of choice for the world's leading metals manufacturers.
