European Pharma-Chemicals Leader Selects Adexa to Optimize Its Supply Chain

Boehringer's Rx for Global Planning

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 21, 2009) - Adexa, Inc., the global provider of profit-driven supply chain planning solutions, announced today that Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the world's 20 leading pharmaceutical companies, has selected and started the implementation of Adexa's Collaborative Operations Planning and Supply Chain Performance Management solutions. Through this initiative, Boehringer Ingelheim is focusing specifically on worldwide alignment of inventory and capacity utilization to match customer demand, while increasing supply chain visibility.

For Boehringer Ingelheim's supply chain team it was imperative to create 'one plan' for all the major stakeholders in their supply chain, including the strategic suppliers. Also, Boehringer Ingelheim wanted to manage their financial performance into the future. Adexa was picked because of its unique capability to tie end-to-end S&OP Planning and financials together.

The complexity of Boehringer Ingelheim's supply chain has increased as product variety increased and global interactions between the plants became more intricate. As a result of this initiative, Boehringer Ingelheim expects to decrease inventory, while improving its capacity utilization, and lower costs.

"Boehringer Ingelheim put our team through a very rigorous evaluation process," said Cyrus Hadavi, President and CEO of Adexa. "But we appreciate their efforts since we now have the reaffirmation of our solutions' fit, to this large and multifaceted industry, by one of its most respected members."
