SmartOps Multistage Inventory Planning & Optimization Software Application Licensed by HP in Latin America

SmartOps Multistage Inventory Planning & Optimization Software Application Licensed by HP in Latin America

PITTSBURGH, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartOps Corporation, a leading provider of enterprise-class supply chain optimization software solutions, today announced that its SmartOps Multistage Inventory Planning & Optimization (MIPO(TM)) software solution has been licensed by HP for use by its Imaging and Personal Systems Group in Latin America.

"Technology solutions companies are taking supply chain planning and execution to the next level," said Dr. Sridhar Tayur, CEO and founder of SmartOps. "Many of our customers are adding MIPO to their existing SAP and SAP APO systems to support a more robust business architecture for supply chain planning."

MIPO is designed to enable customers to achieve both a rapid return on investment and a long-term competitive advantage by determining the best possible inventory and product availability plans given inherent uncertainties, time-varying data, multi-location and inventory stage complexities, and aggressive customer service goals. MIPO dynamically aims to generate optimal inventory targets for each stage of the supply chain, while providing visibility into each reason inventory is needed -- including safety, cycle, pre-build, pipeline and merchandising stock requirements, by item or stock-keeping unit (SKU) -- to meet desired service levels.

MIPO 3.2's optimized inventory targets serve as critical inputs into Enterprise Resource Planning and Advanced Planning & Scheduling systems so they function efficiently, delivering better intelligence for inventory planning and execution.
