  • Oil & Gas
  • Logistics
  • Workforce.

Quintiq is extending its group of horizontal department areas to six:

  • Optimization Technology
  • Professional Services
  • Products.

A Quality Management unit is also being created to support all departments in quality assurance and quality improvement.

"Based on the current level of demand for our supply chain planning and optimization  solutions, Quintiq has taken steps to meet the exciting growth we are seeing in the EMEA markets," said Arjen Heeres, Quintiq's Chief Operations Officer. "This new alignment will ensure we maintain our small company culture and industry expertise while delivering world-class solutions to customers around the world."
