Preactor International, the specialist planning and scheduling Software Company, has been selected by Wander AG to deliver substantially improved production planning and scheduling efficiencies. The project is being undertaken by advenco Consulting GmbH, the German Preactor reseller and is expected to go live in June 2012.
With origins dating back to 1865, Wander AG is now a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality food products including household names such as Ovaltine , Caotina , Dawa, and Jemalt . A subsidiary of Associated British Foods (ABF), one of the largest international food companies in Europe, Wander AG understandably places great importance on high quality, the innovativeness of its products as well as delivering outstanding customer satisfaction. When the company needed to improve its production planning and scheduling capabilities as part of its overall supply chain management strategy, the natural choice was Preactor Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) from Supply Chain Management (SCM) specialist advenco Consulting GmbH. Preactor is already used and trusted elsewhere in the ABF group and with Preactor used in nearly 200 food and beverage companies, 127 in Europe alone, Preactor APS is increasingly recognised as the APS solution of choice in this sector.
Valerie Goulevitch, Head of Global Marketing and Communication for Preactor International, comments on the business win. "Wander AG is a perfect example of a company that needs not just an industry leading solution, but also an implementation with a real depth of industry experience in order to maximise the benefits the solution can deliver." She continues, "As a QAD Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) user, the company also needs a solution and partner that provides a seamless integration between production planning and its wider ERP and SCM systems. Preactor has a respected relationship with QAD and Preactor partner, advenco Consulting GmbH, is recognised as an expert in Supply Chain Management with strong industry knowledge in the food and drink sector."
Michael Fatum General Manager of advenco is equally positive. "For a company that places such high value on quality and consistency it is essential that any implementation not only delivers the expected benefits but also does so in a way that does not interrupt the ongoing operations of the business. Preactor has been successfully integrated many times and is widely used in food and drink manufacturers at a European and global level. This combined with our expertise and proven "advenco Consulting method" will ensure that Wander AG will get the very best from its investment in Preactor."
