MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2015
FusionOps, the leading provider of cloud-based supply chain analytic applications, today announced that it was named one of Supply and Demand Chain Executive 100, which highlights 100 Great Supply Chain Projects.
FusionOps’ winning submission featured participation in a global business transformation with Columbia Sportswear, a leading innovator in the global apparel, footwear, accessories and equipment markets.
The FusionOps supply chain analytics platform helped Columbia Sportswear across many dimensions:
- Filled gaps in SAP’s tactical and operational reporting layers;
- Substantially improved the timeliness and depth of supply chain visibility for the sales team, account services group, credit representatives, business analysts and executive teams;
- Leverage a lower TCO model
Columbia estimates that building the reports from scratch would have been several times the effort vs. leveraging the “out of the box” FusionOps analytical models to meet their apparel and footwear-specific industry needs.
“Our global business transformation (GBT) has driven an approximate 50% gain in net profit along with a 25% gain in net sales in 2014” said Fred Pond, CIO, Columbia Sportswear. “FusionOps was one of the key factors in our GBT program for visibility to our data and helping boost the share of merchandise delivered on-time and in-full.”
“We are delighted to be chosen as one of the top 100 Greatest Supply Chain projects this year,” said Gary Meyers, CEO of FusionOps. “Supply and Demand Chain Executive is one of the top publications in the industry, and we’re honored to be recognized for our work with Columbia Sportswear. Our outstanding collaboration has resulted in significant financial improvements and dramatically improved supply chain visibility for Columbia, and we couldn't be more pleased. Congratulations to both the Columbia and FusionOps teams that made it happen.”
Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine, the creator and presenter of the award, said the award was created “to put the spotlight on projects that are delivering bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain.
Projects featured serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.” Information on various supply chain transformation efforts were submitted to the publication whose editorial staff then chose winners based on ambitiousness/scope of the project, creative application of technologies/solutions/services used, extent of the business results/impact and clarity of submission.
