OSLO, Norway, June 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Blue Ridge, a provider of cloud-native supply chain planning solutions hosted their 7th annual BLUEPrint Nordics Conference at Losby Gods in Oslo, Norway. Dozens of leading Nordics companies gathered to collaborate with their peers and Blue Ridge executives while taking a deeper look at the future of supply chain.

The transformational event attracted the highest attendance in BLUEPrint Nordics history. Implementing an entirely new format, 50% of the conference was composed of Blue Ridge customers sharing their success and stories along the way. The customer appearances represented some of the Nordic's premier companies including: K. Ekrheim, Cervera, Bilglassgruppen, Rema Distribusjon and Panorama. Since making the switch to Blue Ridge, customers have demonstrated dramatically lower operating costs and significantly greater inventory performance. Haakon Ekrheim, CEO at K Ekrheim AS noted, "The Blue Ridge solutions truly helped us save our bacon and have been instrumental in our transformation into the hyper-effective organization we are today.They are key to our future success".

"The momentum and interest in Blue Ridge's product offerings has been far greater in only the first half of 2015 as compared to the entire year in 2014," stated Sverre Rosmo, Managing Director of the Nordics region. He continued, "I believe that the ability to deploy fully functional systems in less than 90 days, experience economic benefit in the first order cycle, and our innovative approach are the primary reasons for the unprecedented interest in Blue Ridge."

Blue Ridge is preparing to host BLUEPrint Global on October 6-8, 2015 at The Chateau Élan Winery and Resort in Georgia. Blue Ridge is anticipating record-breaking attendance and greater customer success stories than ever before. "After an outstanding turnout and response to our Nordics conference, we are eager to debut the new Blue Ridge at BLUEPrint Global this year," stated Greg White, CEO of Blue Ridge.
