DynaSys, a division of QAD Inc. and provider of demand and supply chain planning solutions, has signed a contract with Zodiac Poolcare, a global swimming pool and spa industry product company.
Zodiac will leverage DynaSys solutions to optimise sales forecasts, distribution planning and finite capacity planning including sales and operations planning (S&OP) processes.
"We have gone from regional management based on product lines to a global and centralised system of resource management," said Nicolas Goineau, Zodiac Poolcare's vice president of supply chain EMEA. "This represents a fundamental change in terms of logistics, organisation and planning. To meet this challenge, we needed a full-featured planning solution that will support our changing needs in the future. We have chosen DynaSys." Zodiac initiated a comprehensive technology solution selection review to ensure that the solution met the company's unique needs. There were multiple requirements including:
- The ability to change from a seasonal to non-seasonal swimming pool market.
- The flexibility to integrate the solution into their diverse existing software.
- A proven process to enable rapid deployment at various global facilities.
- A clear, real-time view of inventory and procurement sourcing by product line.
- A nimble, open, configurable and user-friendly solution.
- Expert support services to manage market-driven changes conditions.
- A proven planning solution to optimise the global supply chain.
"After a comprehensive study of different Advanced Planning Systems (APS) solutions, we chose DynaSys," explained Nicolas Goineau. "All of the requirements were fulfilled and we were very happy with their comprehension of the issues related to our industry. Tomorrow, with a single click we will be able to have a real-time snapshot of our global inventories, procurement sourcing and forecasts."
"We are proud to have a company like Zodiac among our new customers," said DynaSys Managing Director Ariel Weil. "Our global presence and the durability of our solutions, as well as the proven expertise of our consultants in demand and supply chain planning, will combine to help propel Zodiac Poolcare to new heights in the global marketplace."
