Ortec, the advanced resource planning software solutions provider, and Bitmakers, a Spanish corporation that offers technological solutions for the industry and the services, have announced the formation of a strategic alliance. Bitmakers resells Ortecs Vehicle Routing and Dispatch, Pallet and Load building and Field Service Planning Solution Suites in the Spanish market.
Managing Director Ramon Armengol states: "Ortec provides us with functional, innovative and best-of-breed advanced planning and scheduling solutions suites, plus the level of support we need to satisfy our customers. This partnership is very powerful, and it will help our customers to optimise their resource planning and transportation order management, to gain fleet control and ensure follow-up, to optimise their load space and to help them integrate mobile devices with other equipment."
Experience, knowledge and vision
"Bitmakers provides us with experience, knowledge, vision and ambition to grow, that match Ortecs goals," adds Managing Director Partners and Alliances Michael Oskam. "Their expertise and know-how in the Spanish market are a valuable asset to us. Scalability of our products play a crucial role. With Bitmakers we are enabled to achieve more scalability in selling and deploying an important range of our products in Spain." Commercial Director Fernando Fernandez: "Ortec systems provide a level of scalability that enable customers to grow organically and smoothly, providing the best TCO (total cost of ownership). Compared to other competitive solutions, it is highly unlikely to reach limitations on data volumes."
"As Ortec continues its global expansion, we are focused on building upon and investing in our existing partner network, together with the creation of new channels to go to market", adds Michael Oskam,. "We are very pleased with this partnership. By joining forces we now have access to an established network of potential customers and partners right across Spain. The Ortec -Bitmakers combination is a formula to success. Bitmakers is already expanding its sales and marketing structure and its technical and development resources to ensure the ability to deal with the expected growth. I have no doubt that our partnership will be of great value to our customers."
The partnership has already turned out to be very successful, with a large number of customers taking advantage of the benefits. Some of these customers include companies like Repsol, Danone, Unilever, Arbora & Ausonia and Vallcompanys.

reduction of direct and indirect costs (fleet used, fuel expense, kms, communications, personnel)
improved productivity of resources (vehicle utilisation, service and lead times)
optimisation of operations related to the actual planning (speed, variability control, equipment, special characteristics)
regulation of compliance and sustainability improvements (reduction in CO2 emissions)
