CHICAGO, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vecco International (www.veccointl.com), an emerging software vendor delivering world-class supply chain collaboration solutions to global businesses and their value chains, today announced its gold-level sponsorship of the Aberdeen Group's upcoming Supply Chain Summit, beginning here tomorrow.
Vecco will demonstrate its Allegro suite of collaborative supply chain execution solutions, deployable either on-premises or via software as a service (SaaS). Allegro delivers multi-tier end-to-end visibility, collaboration and business process execution. With Allegro, companies can create highly responsive, demand-driven business networks that solve today's global supply and fulfillment challenges. Allegro sits on top of and leverages existing technology, providing the real-time multi-partner synchronization required to compress fulfillment cycles and manage the complexity and constant change of today's volatile supply chains.
"The top priorities identified by organizations from a process improvement standpoint in 2011 are gaining supply chain visibility and improving their inventory positions," said Nari Viswanathan, Aberdeen's VP/Principal Analyst, Supply Chain Management. "Also, 50% of the organizations do not have a centralized supply chain organization and have a silo-based functional organization. Given the need to gain visibility across the enterprise and beyond into the demand-supply network, traditional enterprise application models are restrictive. There needs to be augmentation with collaborative planning and execution solutions that help synchronize the Demand-Supply networks," Viswanathan added.
"We're pleased to be sponsoring Aberdeen's event, since it attracts a wide range of companies that are specifically seeking answers to their supply chain challenges," said Jonathan Kall, Vecco's Chief Executive Officer. "To compete in today's complex global markets, companies need to transform their existing supply chains into highly synchronized business networks that can adapt to constantly changing market conditions and deliver profitable demand response." Kall noted that Allegro powers one of the world's largest and most complex supply chains. Running across multiple, global lines of business on a single cloud-based platform, it is one of the industry's most efficient and profitable high-performance supply chains.
The Aberdeen Supply Chain Management Summit, now is in its fifth year, has emerged as the leading forum for top supply chain executives to share best practices, strategic processes, and business improvements and explore the most innovative products and services on the market.
