Arkieva, the designer and provider of a suite of
advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software tools, on
Monday announced the successful upgrade of its software
solution for INEOS Olefins & Polymers.
INEOS upgraded to version 4.6 of the suite, which will
enable them to benefit from the latest features of the
software, such as improved analytics and performance
monitoring, and also allow better integration with the latest Windows
version, according to company officials.
Arkieva has been a reliable and robust supply chain
planning software provider to us for a number of years,
said Chris Hawes, supply chain m anager for INEOS Olefins &
Polymers in the US.
The real value of any software solution is how quickly
and easily it can adapt to changing conditions and operational
environments. Arkieva has shown it
can do this in a constructive way. In addition to planning, it
enhances the visibility of supply chain data across different
functions within INEOS O&P.
Among the enhancements, INEOS users will experience a new
user interface design. Based on customer feedback and research
into best practices, Arkieva says the new interface is more
intuitive with easy to use and understand displays.
The company also says the collaborative user aspect has been
improved, making it much easier for users in corporate
functions beyond supply chain to access and make sense of
critical supply chain data.
We greatly value our working relationship with an
industry leader like INEOS, said Sujit Singh, chief
operating officer of Arkieva.
Our partnership is truly a collaborative effort and
software solutions benefit from working with a company like
INEOS Olefins & Polymers. Nothing makes our job easier than
to have a knowledgeable supply chain and IT group to work with
on a project.
