International fiber solutions provider realizes operational gains with SolveIT Software system.

SolveIT Software Pty Ltd, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions for supply & demand optimisation and predictive modelling, announced today that international fibre solutions provider Michell Pty Ltd is entering its third year of production use of SolveIT Software's predictive model for currency hedging.

"Since going live with SolveIT Software's predictive model for currency hedging, we have financially benefited from the system by consistently following the recommendations it has generated," said Mr. Stephen Warren, Chief Financial Officer of Michell Pty Ltd. "The system has been embedded into our operating process, is used on a daily basis, and was recently expanded to take into account Euro and Yen currencies in addition to transactions denominated in US dollars."

For more than 130 years, the Michell name has been associated with the international wool textile industry. Today, Michell Pty Ltd is a leading provider of innovative fibre and fibre solutions to the international wool and textile industry. Headquartered in Adelaide, South Australia, the company employs 225 people across its offices in Australia and overseas. For more information, please visit: http://www.michell.com.au

Based on SolveIT Software's proprietary platforms for prediction and simulation, the system generates adaptive currency-hedging rules for delaying the cover of certain contracts to capitalise on exchange rate fluctuations. The daily output of the system is a recommended currency hedging strategy for Michell's international contracts.

The system uses several Artificial Intelligence technologies, including fuzzy logic, a modern multi-threaded and self-adaptive evolutionary algorithm, and rules that automatically adapt to changes in market conditions. Notwithstanding the high-level of sophisticated technologies used by the underlying prediction and simulation platforms, the system is accessed through an easy-to-use and highly intuitive graphical user interface.
