Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes company and global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), announces that it is named a Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Awards Partner. This award recognizes the value of a strategic initiative with its client, JBS USA, who has won the Enterprise Integration and Technology Leadership award for their successful implementation of Quintiq’s planning and scheduling solution.

Awarded by Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Council, this recognition reinforces Quintiq’s capability to drive value in the most complex supply chains around the world. With the Quintiq planning solution, JBS USA is enabled with full visibility of up-to-date product availability in order to provide real time order promising.  Quintiq is able to adhere to JBS’s unique constraints from the disassembly of proteins, managing raw material forecasts, optimize product mix and production schedules allowing JBS to more effectively manage and execute its production, reduce waste, while fulfilling customer needs more efficiently and timely.

“We replaced an old, clunky, manually-driven process that didn’t give us quick turnaround on answers with something that effectively shows us real-time availability and satisfies customer and sales questions almost immediately… The customer service has greatly improved, and the perception of us by our customers in terms of responsiveness and being able to get them what they want and get them answers quickly.” said Jim Sehi, Director of IT at JBS USA.

Now in its 14th year, the ML Awards program honors organizations and individuals that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. The implementation of transformative technologies, such as Quintiq, contributes to the advancement of the manufacturing industry, especially in regards to food production and the processing of proteins.  The ability to access product availability quickly and address customer order queries immediately encourages JBS USA to meet an ever-growing demand.

“We are proud to be honored alongside JBS USA, a customer that has seen its fulfillment increase from 80% to 90% after implementing the Quintiq solution,” said Jonathan Lin, Director of Americas at Quintiq. “The acknowledgment of our success pushes us to find new ways of delivering meaningful results to manufacturers around the world on transforming their supply chains. As the industry grows in complexity, so does the need for better decision support and supply chain visibility, which is what Quintiq can provide.”
