Consumer Goods Technology Readers Rank Logility Number One in Supply Chain Planning Customer Experience

Logility Receives Twelfth Consecutive Reader’s Choice Award

ATLANTA (January 31, 2012) – Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the supply chain, was voted highest in customer experience of all solution providers for supply chain planning by the readers of Consumer Goods Technology. Additionally, Logility was named a top supply chain management solution provider in supply chain planning and supply chain execution for the 12th consecutive year.

The 2012 Consumer Goods Technology Reader’s Choice surveyed more than 150 consumer goods business and IT executives to identify the solutions and solution providers they value most. Each respondent was asked to rate the customer experience from least satisfied to most satisfied, including implementation and use of the software. The results show consumer goods companies are the most satisfied with their use of Logility Voyager Solutions for supply chain planning, ranking Logility number one in customer experience. The award, in its 12th year, has recognized Logility as a top provider of supply chain planning and supply chain execution software every year since its inception.

“Our focus on providing intuitive solutions that solve the increasingly complex global supply chain challenges companies face has never wavered,” said Mike Edenfield, president and CEO, Logility. “To be honored for the 12th consecutive year is a direct reflection of the commitment and drive of everyone at Logility who helps develop Logility Voyager Solutions and provides unrivaled customer support and service.”

Aggressive competitors, margin erosion, and quickly changing consumer preferences and behaviors pose serious challenges to the consumer goods industry. To remain competitive consumer goods companies must have greater supply chain visibility to understand at a moment’s notice the impact a sourcing, inventory or manufacturing decision will have. Logility Voyager Solutions drive some of the world’s most powerful consumer goods supply chains from driving sales & operations planning (S&OP) to multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) and demand planning through transportation management.
