Intrigo Systems Announces Recognition by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in Supply Chain Planning for its Optek Solution

FREMONT, CA —APRIL 14, 2015— Intrigo Systems is pleased to announce that Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT) has recognized us as a Cool Vendor in Supply Chain Planning for 2015 for Optek, by analysts Amber Salley, Tim Payne, and Bart De Muynck. Optek is the newest offering from Intrigo Systems as a solution extension for SAP™ (NYSE: SAP) APO.


Key Findings from the report dated March 31, 2015:

■ Supply chain leaders are struggling to respond quickly to sudden changes in demand, so they must focus on tools that help them converge planning and execution activities.

■ Continuing pressure on supply chain organizations to cut costs and enable growth is creating the need to develop financially optimized demand and supply plans.

■ Supply chain leaders tasked with quickly analyzing large amounts of data can use tools that have the potential to identify hidden pockets of profit opportunity and the opportunity costs associated with selecting product mixes.

■ Supply chain leaders need to find ways of leveraging their existing investments in their quest to improve supply chain performance.

“Optek reduces the struggle that planners face with constantly changing data,” said Padman Ramankutty, Founder and CEO of Intrigo Systems. “With Optek, enterprises can increase planner productivity and maximize the ROI of their APO investment.”

As the decision support solution for planning teams in dynamic, high-tech discrete manufacturing environments, Optek provides a solution extension for SAP APO, empowering planners with more visibility of their data models. Removing the ongoing restarting of manual data manipulation that is costly and error laden is where Optek leverages the APO investment. Optek allows for flexibility in iterative planning and evaluation of outcomes that is not available in the complex APO software offered today.

Intrigo Systems will be showcasing Optek in booth # 1320A at SAPPHIRENOW in Orlando, May 5-7, 2015.
