Nutrabolt Selects Logility to Synchronize Supply with Demand and Improve Customer Service
Logility Voyager Solutions to Automate Supply Chain Processes at Fast–Growing Nutritional Life Sciences Provider
ATLANTA — May 3, 2016 — Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, today announced Nutrabolt, a fast–growing nutritional life science company, has selected Logility Voyager Solutions™ to help drive a more accurate forecast, align inventory and improve customer service.
Founded in 2002, Nutrabolt has experienced double–digit growth that has outpaced its current supply chain infrastructure. Following an extensive evaluation of supply chain solutions, Nutrabolt selected Logility to synchronize the company’s production and inventory with market demand across multiple sales channels. With Logility, Nutrabolt seeks to accurately balance demand with supply to avoid inventory imbalances that create missed sales opportunities or compliance penalties from retail partners. Nutrabolt needed to move beyond its current spreadsheet–oriented planning process that requires planners and executives to painstakingly review each plan line–by–line before approving an order.
“Our customers have come to rely on Nutrabolt products to support their personal nutrition goals,” said Casey Bauer, senior vice president, supply chain, Nutrabolt. “As we continue to grow, we see Logility as the supply chain platform that will enable us to effectively plan at the customer–channel level, which is important in our highly competitive, promotion–driven consumer packaged goods market. Logility will also help us automate many of our manual, time–intensive processes, and free up valuable planning resources to make more strategic contributions.”
Nutrabolt conducted a supply chain maturity assessment to help establish a baseline and determine the opportunities with the greatest potential impact. This helped set the company’s supply chain strategy, identify process improvements and then select the technology partner that would best match the company’s needs today and in the future. One of the critical need areas is supply chain planning. The company identified Logility as best suited to support Nutrabolt’s current and future growth plans.
“Many fast–growing companies like Nutrabolt find their supply chain technology and processes unable to keep pace with the rest of their business,” said Allan Dow, president, Logility. “Logility Voyager Solutions delivers the powerful capabilities these companies need to significantly improve their bottom line while growing the top line. We are excited to help the team at Nutrabolt uncover new opportunities to increase service levels, delight their customers and grow more profitably.”
