Profit Point, a leading Supply Chain Optimization company, today announced the introduction of Profit Network 4.5, a major upgrade to their award-winning supply chain network design and modeling software. The software update includes a combination of new features and technical enhancements which combine to support richer scenario testing for larger supply chains over a longer time periods.
"With almost 10 years in the field, Profit Network has been put to the test against some of the world's largest supply chains," noted Jim Piermarini, Profit Point's Chief Technology Officer. "But best practices have expanded over time, so decision makers are looking for more integrated and comprehensive modeling solutions."
Profit Network 4.5, which is used by many Global 2000 companies to model supply chain plans, has been enhanced to integrate better capital planning, greater control over facilities decisions and improve tracking and modeling of sustainability initiatives. The modeling software now includes improved options for integrated capital spending, facilities decisions, natural resource planning and emissions mitigation.
"Ultimately, the number one priority for our customers remains capital planning and return on investments" said Piermarini. "A company's infrastructure plan will dictate 80% or more of future costs. So, we added several features that help analysts understand the capital impact of decisions to control costs and maximize the long-term logistics benefits."
The software update also includes several technical enhancements to improve planning for the largest supply chains, over longer periods of time. "We've added a new core optimization process into Profit Network 4.5," stated Piermarini.
