Logility Voyager Solutions Provides Foundation for Sandvik’s Supply Chain Transformation
Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, today announced Sandvik, a high-technology, engineering group with advanced products and world-leading positions within selected areas, has realized significant benefits with Logility Voyager Solutions™ including a 300% jump in forecast accuracy.

In 2010, Sandvik Mining and Construction, a business area within Sandvik with operations in more than 130 countries, embarked on a Supply Chain Transformation Project to optimize its distribution network and support the company’s objectives to deliver unsurpassed customer service, improve lead times, and simultaneously develop a segmentation strategy based on multiple criteria including product and customer. As part of this initiative, Logility Voyager Solutions was selected to manage its large network of manufacturing facilities and world-wide distribution of parts to ensure inventory is positioned correctly and capacity is balanced across the network.

The Supply Chain Transformation project focused on seven key elements: sales and operations planning (S&OP), demand planning, service orientated order management, differentiated replenishment and assortment strategies, capacity and supply reliability, customer focused network, enablers including planning end-to-end, and new organization and key performance indicator (KPI) tracking. To support each of these elements, Sandvik Mining and Construction turned to Logility.

“Our goal with the Supply Chain Transformation Project is to provide a consolidated supply chain structure where all processes, systems and information are integrated into one global stream to drive improved service and cost effectiveness throughout the supply chain,”
said Lars Blomberg, head of planning and control, Sandvik. “Logility Voyager Solutions is our supporting technology platform for this initiative and since implementation has helped us achieve remarkable results including improved service levels, greater visibility and faster inventory turns.”

Sandvik Mining and Construction’s previous tools and processes limited the company’s ability to turn their supply chain into a competitive advantage. Logility Voyager Solutions is able to plan, procure, manufacture, and distribute with more accuracy, flexibility and positive impact on the bottom line.

“Sandvik Mining and Construction’s supply chain transformation has created a more efficient, global enterprise focused on delivering exceptional service to more than 130 countries,” said Mike Edenfield, president and CEO, Logility. “We are proud to support their supply chain initiative and deliver a platform to deliver increased visibility, improve service levels and enable their continued global growth.”
