ATLANTA — August 1, 2018 — Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, today announced the editors of Supply & Demand Chain Executive named Logility a recipient of its 2018 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Top 100. The award highlights the industry's most successful and transformative projects of the past year and marks the 16th consecutive year Logility has been honored. This year Logility was recognized for the success Glen Raven, a global provider of fabric–based solutions for the awning, marine, furniture, protective, military and geo–synthetics industries, achieved through its implementation of Logility Voyager Solutions™.
As Glen Raven grew, both organically and through acquisitions, its manual systems became cumbersome and spreadsheets were perceived as a potential risk to the business. To overcome these challenges, Glen Raven selected Logility Voyager Solutions as its integrated planning platform to produce feasible capacity and material plans, improve supply chain visibility and help profitably grow the business through better management of working capital.
Glen Raven realized significant benefits across the company. Forecast accuracy measured by MAPE improved 45 percent and the organization is now able to facilitate its Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) process from a single integrated business plan. At the same time, the business continued to grow as sales volume increased with no increase in overall inventory.
"We are honored to be recognized by the editors of Supply & Demand Chain Executive for the sixteenth consecutive year for helping companies transform their supply chains," said Allan Dow, president, Logility. "Logility is proud to serve innovative organizations such as Glen Raven to help them simplify planning complexity, increase visibility, boost customer service and drive more profitable growth."
The Supply & Demand Chan Executive Top 100 award is given to supply chain providers, consultants and other organizations that help lead complex supply chain operations with innovative technology. The editorial staff bases the award on the recipient's ability to show measurable ROI through ambitiousness/scope, the creative application of technology/solutions, the extent of the business results and the clarity of the submission.
