DynaSys, a division of QAD Inc. and provider of demand and supply chain planning solutions, has signed a contract with Global Closure Systems (GCS), one of the world's market leaders in the closure and dispensing systems sector.
GCS decided to replace its existing system with a solution capable of improving its capacity planning at a global level, a fundamental requirement in Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) processes. "We wanted to standardise our demand and supply chain planning solution throughout all of our global facilities," explained GCS Project Manager, David Le Roy. "The DynaSys solution allows us to use the same process at all of our 23 manufacturing sites on three continents. Our entire enterprise will be able to collaborate more easily and share the right information at the right time."
After thoroughly evaluating the major demand and supply chain planning and advance planning solution providers, GCS selected the DynaSys demand planning and production planning solution. In addition to providing all of the advanced features required for managing a global enterprise, the solution's positive reputation and flexibility and the expertise of the project team attracted the GCS selection team. GCS selected the DynaSys solution for several reasons:
- The ability to establish a collaborative process for a multi-site implementation centralised at GCS global headquarters
- A powerful Demand Planning solution able to quickly and easily generate sales forecasts and optimise inventory levels
- A proven finite capacity planning solution
- Easy integration with the company's existing IT infrastructure
"We are pleased to have Global Closure Systems among our community of DynaSys solution users," said DynaSys Managing Director Ariel Weil. "The robust functionality and durability of our Demand and Supply Chain Planning solutions will enable GCS to efficiently manage its global supply chain and accommodate anticipated future growth."
