Adelaide, South Australia (PRWEB) March 7, 2009
SolveIT Software Pty Ltd, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions for supply & demand optimisation and predictive modelling, announced today that Pernod Ricard Pacific has gone live in Australia and New Zealand with SolveIT Software's system for planning and scheduling the vintage intake process.
The deployed system has replaced Pernod Ricard Pacific's existing Excel-based tool for managing vintage intake, and is used to plan, coordinate, and schedule grape harvest and transport across wineries in Australia and New Zealand. The planning system uses information on predicted harvest dates, processing wineries, and carriers within each region to create optimised plans that are used by staff to assist in bookings constrained resources such as winery slots, harvesters, and carriers. Users can also export the planning data so that it can be accessed by growers through a web portal.
This implementation follows a successful deployment of SolveIT Software's Tank Farm Optimiser in 2007, which is used by Pernod Ricard Pacific to plan, schedule, and optimise the wine production process across more than 1000 tanks to minimise losses and optimise wine blend quality.
"We have been impressed with SolveIT Software's ability to model and optimise the complexities of wine production across more than 1000 tanks at our Rowland Flat winery, and we have extended our relationship into the area of vintage intake planning," said Mr Pierre-Yves Calloc'h, Chief Information Officer of Pernod Ricard Pacific. "The Solve IT management and delivery team have been fully focused on delivering the business benefits and have proven very flexible with our IT context and user requirements."
