Sigma Electric Selects Atlas Planning Suite to Transform Supply Chain Planning Process
CHICAGO – May 13, 2008 – John Galt Solutions, the leading provider of affordable planning solutions for the consumer-driven supply chain, announced today that Sigma Electric has selected the John Galt Atlas Planning Suite to power its supply chain planning process.
Sigma Electric is a contract manufacturer of more than 5000 products, including conduit and cable fittings as well as weatherproof enclosures for electrical equipment. Sigma supplies worldwide to the retail commercial and industrial construction industries, as well as power distribution.
With the Atlas Planning Suite, Sigma Electric will profit from a supply chain planning solution that drastically improves forecast accuracy and reduces inventory levels. Planners at Sigma can also use Atlas as a powerful foundation for collaborative planning. Atlas Planning is a modular solution that allows users to build their system as their process becomes more sophisticated, but Sigma has chosen to integrate the full Atlas Planning solution.
Nilesh Shrotri, Sigma’s supply chain analyst, says, “Our current business demands high customer fill rates without carrying excess inventory. We feel confident that the Atlas Planning Suite has the ability to generate accurate forecasts by SKU. We are looking forward to reducing our inventory by 10 % while improving our delivery performance. After reviewing several software packages, we selected Atlas because of its simplicity of use. It perfectly fits into Sigma’s forecasting needs.”
John Galt Solutions CEO Anne Omrod comments, ”Sigma Electric’s choice of the Atlas Planning Suite is another case of a leading consumer goods company choosing John Galt over the competition. The Atlas Planning Suite and our new Consumer Centric Planning offer these companies a unique edge.”
