ATLANTA – November 29, 2022 – Logility, Inc. a leader in supply chain innovation powering the sustainable and resilient enterprise, will upgrade longstanding client Legrand Group to the newest generation of the Logility Digital Supply Chain Platform. This latest step in the continued strategic relationship will allow Legrand, a global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructure, to modernize and grow its supply chain from end-to-end.
“We at Legrand could not have achieved our position in the electrical marketplace without the ability to plan, forecast and supply to meet our customers’ needs,” said Todd Taylor, Marketing Analyst, Legrand Electrical Wiring Systems. “By partnering with Logility for over 25 years, we have been able to sharpen our operations and outperform the competition in these key areas. This latest upgrade will enable us to drive further innovation across our networks.”
Legrand transforms the spaces where people live, work and meet, with electrical and digital infrastructures and connected solutions – including lighting, power, audio visual, and network technologies – that are simple, innovative and sustainable. To achieve this result, Legrand relentlessly pursues both sustainable business practices and the creation of exceptional experiences through the design and manufacture of its many product lines – including Pass & Seymour®.
Pass & Seymour creates electrical devices such as switches, outlets, and chargers that are used in commercial, residential, and industrial wiring installations. The brand’s primary goal is to drive productivity, reliability, and safety in every product offered, while going a step above with its modern designs. By leveraging Logility’s cloud-based and artificial intelligence (AI)- and machine learning (ML)-embedded platform, Pass & Seymour can immediately improve planner efficiency, enhance forecast accuracy and increase its bottom line.
Additionally, the scalable application will seamlessly support expansion across its sister brands within the growing Legrand portfolio, further improving operational efficiency and, ultimately, driving more sustainable supply chain networks.
“As demand for Legrand’s products surges, it’s critical the company’s global supply chain networks are prepared to continuously operate and innovate effectively,” said Allan Dow, president, Logility. “Having worked closely with their team over the years, implementing the newest generation of our Digital Supply Chain Platform with its latest and greatest capabilities was a natural next step in the evolution of our partnership.
