Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
The Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), a not-for-profit unit of The University of Texas at Austin, has selected V-Chain Solutions, an emerging enterprise technology provider of Supply Chain Execution & Analytics solutions, for its Landing Pad Program. V-Chain will be working with the University of Texas at Austin Artificial Intelligence department to roll out a revolutionary technology called Swift Response, which enables companies to automatically pinpoint the root problem areas within the supply chain operation before they become disruptions to the business.
ATI's Landing Pad Program supports early stage technology companies by leveraging ATI's network and community insight to accelerate a company's acculturation into Austin's ecosystem. V-Chain Solutions is a Supply Chain Execution & Analytics Technology provider who enables companies to run more efficiently and respond faster to changing conditions in the marketplace. Its new corporate headquarters in Austin is the fourth V-Chain location, with additional offices in San Francisco, Atlanta and Dallas. Austin's leading tech environment and rich entrepreneurial community first led V-Chain Solutions to the flourishing Central Texas area, as well as the opportunity to work with ATI and UT Austin’s Artificial Intelligence department.
"We are excited about the opportunity to work with ATI and the University of Texas at Austin. I have made Austin my new home and I look forward to bringing more tech jobs to the Austin community,” said James Vinson, President of V-Chain Solutions.
Swift Response consolidates the transactional activities from multiple supply chain systems, enabling companies to have a single environment where they plan, execute, analyze and communicate across their entire supply chain, while increasing productivity by 200%. The technology blends with existing supply chain systems and is non-disruptive to the operation. Swift Response analyzes every supply chain transaction, which drives real time compliance.
The Swift Response technology has received numerous awards in its early stages: the 2010 Concept to Reality Award, the 2011 Georgia Bowl Business Plan Competition, and the 2011 Global Venture Labs Outstanding Market Award.
V-Chain is currently seeking development partners and early stage adopters to pilot the Swift Response solution. The Swift Response Technology is available to medium to large enterprises that use two or more transactional-based systems to drive their supply chain operations.
“We are thrilled to welcome V-Chain Solutions to ATI as a new Landing Pad company. We look forward to helping them grow their business and providing them with networking opportunities with local tech entrepreneurs, venture capital investors, UT Austin researchers, and potential customers,” said ATI IT Portfolio Director Robert Reeves.
James Vinson will be speaking at the Sales and Operations Planning Conference in Boston September 15th and 16th (http://www.theiegroup.com/SOP_Boston/Overview.html) and the Demand Planning Conference in San Francisco at the 3:30pm session on September 19th (http://www.altamont-group.com/event_brochure/BusinessForecasting2011.pdf).
