Orchestr8 Brings Demand-Driven Supply Chains To Life, Drastically Reducing Inventories While Improving Service Levels

Aug 21, 2018

Orchestr8 Brings Demand-Driven Supply Chains To Life, Drastically Reducing Inventories While Improving Service Levels 7 Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Orchestr8? A: Orchestr8 is a supply chain planning SaaS solution provider. We have built a solution that runs alongside core transaction systems to provide a user friendly end to end planning platform that delivers a step change improvement in inventory, service and operating cost outcomes. We have nearly 20 years of delivering and developing our solution, our solution is unique in that it is developed by a team of planners to support best practice processes whilst using a segmentation approach that ensure the right planning approach is used for the right product at the right time. That may be Demand Driven planning, Event planning, low volume Spares planning, high volume flow planning or one of our other planning methodologies. Q: Philip, can you tell us a little about your background? What were you doing before starting Orchestr8? A: My background is as a planner. I started my career in Utilities and Telecoms as part of teams building supply planning competence in businesses that traditionally were not supply chain focused. I continued my development as a Supply Chain practitioner through a Masters Degree in Supply Chain Management from Cranfield University before joining Arthur Andersen as a supply chain consultant. I continued in various consulting roles until establishing Orchestr8 in 2002. Q: What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in launching your business and how did you overcome it? A: The biggest challenge is always finding new customers willing to try something different. We have always approached planning as a structured process that does not use integrated MRP which is what of course 99% of businesses use. The results can be spectacular but it is breaking away from the standard approach which is always safe – even if it is poorly performing. We have just tried to keep putting ourselves out in front of as many businesses as possible to be there when they decide a change is required. Once that decision becomes evident we are a natural choice. We really understand the process and the issues a business has as well as providing the most complete planning solution available in the market. Q: Can you give us insights into your services? A: Orchestr8 focus on the development and delivery of our unique software solution. We have a team of industry professionals that have run planning operations across Europe to help implement and configure the system with our clients. The software itself currently covers all of the planning processes to manage a distribution or manufacturing businesses supply chain. We operate at Finished Goods distribution levels, in factories and with materials managing inbound replenishment from suppliers. Our solution ensures an integrated planning approach, utilising Demand Driven as a key component but also covering S&OP, Capacity Planning, Inventory Planning, Shipment Planning, Supplier and Third Party Planning, VMI, Simulations, Operational Planning, Order Management and Exception management. This is all delivered by a modern flexible easy to implement platform delivered as a service. Q: What makes Orchestr8 stand out from its competition? A: We deliver the best results. We have a unique focus (for software companies) on the business process and have the only available platform that integrates multiple planning methodologies – from DDMRP to Spares Planning – without any reliance on legacy ERP solutions. We give a genuine alternative to Plan the business and allow the transaction platform to focus on purely managing the transaction. This extends the life of the backbone systems whilst giving businesses best in class planning capability.
