Initiative to Boost Visibility and Improve Service across Global Supply Chain
Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the supply chain, today announced FMC Corporation Agricultural Products Group, a global provider of products to the agricultural industry, has implemented Logility Voyager Solutions™ to facilitate its sales and operations planning (S&OP) process and boost global visibility for better decision-making. Logility Voyager Solutions will support FMC Corporation’s goals to improve forecast accuracy, increase customer service, accelerate new product introductions, and drive down total supply chain costs.
The agricultural products industry is affected by many external factors, such as the cost of energy, commodity prices, unpredictable weather patterns and changes in consumer habits which make accurately forecasting customer demand difficult. FMC Agricultural Products will use Logility Voyager Solutions to improve the company’s global S&OP processes and reign in disparate data sources to deliver quality information quickly, and help drive a proactive approach to optimization and supply chain risk mitigation.
“As our product portfolio grows and we expand our global reach, FMC Agricultural Products needs a flexible and scalable supply chain management tool that will help us deliver our innovative products to market quickly while exceeding our customers’ service expectations,” said Kevin Fields, director, global supply chain, FMC Agricultural Products Group. “Logility Voyager Solutions will facilitate our S&OP processes and help us more accurately assess the impact our decisions have on improving customer satisfaction and achieving financial performance goals. Logility has proven expertise in our industry and the Logility Voyager Solutions suite will help us drive efficiencies across our global supply chain and enhance our ability to cost-effectively meet customer needs.”
Logility Voyager Solutions facilitates the vital S&OP process by establishing a central model for mission-critical supply chain information. This will allow FMC Agricultural Products to profitably synchronize supply and demand to enhance its customer service through more accurate forecasting, improved collaboration, enhanced inventory planning and optimized supply planning. In addition, Logility Voyager Solutions will deliver more detailed information designed to increase visibility across global operations.
“FMC Agricultural Products delivers innovative products that meet the changing face of customer demand across a global marketplace,” said Mike Edenfield, president and CEO, Logility. “Logility Voyager Solutions will help FMC increase its competitive edge, transform supply chain operations to gain greater visibility, and more profitably match demand and supply. In addition, Voyager Solutions will streamline the ability to introduce new products and drive business performance.”
