Smiths Medical, which makes medical equipment, has chosen SO99+ inventory optimisation software from ToolGroup following a six month trial.
Throughout the remainder of 2011 and into 2012, Smiths Medical plans to roll out SO99+ across its factories and distribution centres globally.
Smiths uses Oracle E-Business Suite applications and expects SO99+ to dovetail into existing planning systems and processes.
“In the current global health care climate, it is increasingly important to look for efficiency savings at every link in the supply chain,” said Ron Frisbie, vice president global operations at Smiths.
“We chose SO99+ for its proven record in helping global manufacturing businesses like ours with variable demandpatterns and a long product tail to meaningfully reduce costs without compromising customer service excellence.”
