”In our consulting, we always recommend that processes be considered along the end-to-end supply chain. This means optimizing and automating these processes for our customers in an open, transparent manner. Previously, the technical implementation was mostly based on SAP or on valantic’s waySuite software suite. With o9 Solutions, we are pleased to be able to offer an exceptional software solution to provide information transparently and in real time. This will enable companies to design processes more quickly and intelligently, and thus make optimal, data-driven decisions,“
