'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, The Netherlands, January 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), will sponsor the fourth annual Russia and CIS Executive Summit on Oil and Gas, that takes place on February 20-21, 2014, at the Madinat Jumeirah Conference Center, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The summit provides a platform for senior-level oil and gas executives to exchange ideas, share expertise and discuss the future of the industry. This year's event is expected to attract up to 250 executives who are involved in their companies' strategic development as well as leaders who are shaping the industry's future in Russia, CIS and around the world.
François Eijgelshoven, vice president, Quintiq EMEA, said: "We are pleased to sponsor this event and are excited by the prospect of engaging further with oil and gas industry customers in Russia."
Eijgelshoven will give a presentation about using integrated supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O) to boost bottom-line results in the oil and gas industry. "Planning and scheduling in up and downstream operations and logistics is complicated by many rules and constraints in a constantly changing environment as the industry serves customers who are becoming increasingly more demanding. The ability to optimally plan in a way that accounts for all these constraints is a key to success."
"Optimized planning is rarely achieved in a transaction ERP system, and managing multiple-point solutions creates a headache for IT. What is needed is the right SCP&O platform and approach that can work with a company's existing IT systems, to optimize operations and plan in a way that achieves optimal business results," said Eijgelshoven.
Quintiq experts will be present throughout the event to answer questions on supply chain planning and optimization for the oil and gas industry.
Every business has its supply chain planning puzzles. Some of those puzzles are large. Some are complex. Some seem impossible to solve. Since 1997, Quintiq has been solving each of those puzzles using a single supply chain planning & optimization software platform.
Today, approximately 12,000 users in over 80 countries rely on Quintiq software to plan and optimize workforces, logistics and production. Quintiq has headquarters in the Netherlands and the USA, and offices around the world.
