The SmartOps -SAP Solution Center (S3C) offers multiple live instances of SAP including R/3, APO and BW that are configurable to prospect and customer needs.
“This major infrastructure investment is just one of many ongoing initiatives to help our customers and prospects integrate Inventory Optimization into their enterprise,” says Sridhar Tayur, founder and CEO of SmartOps. “This makes the implementation and ongoing support predictable, risk-free, quick, and cheap.”
SmartOps created the Enterprise Inventory Optimization (EIO) market in 2000 by introducing new science to the marketplace inside enterprise-architected software. More than $13 billion of inventories around the world are under active management using SmartOps’ Multistage Inventory Planning and Optimization (MIPO) software and more than $3B in value has been created.
SAP, the largest provider of business software, selected SmartOps MIPO as its Endorsed Business Solution (EBS) and EIO has become the No. 1 investment for several industries. With ConAgra, Bayer, Kellogg, Deere, Rohm & Haas, Caterpillar, Jabil, HP, and Unilever as common customers of both SAP and SmartOps, MIPO has become the leading EIO solution in the world.
“S3C also allows for our R&D folks to collaborate easily with the engineers and solution managers at SAP as we develop new modules and bring them to market together,” says Tayur. “This ongoing innovation is an important part of our relationship. This way our customers can have best-of-breed functionality that is architecturally compatible with their platform investments.”
