ThroughPut’s AI-based demand sensing and capacity planning capabilities and project44 to empower companies with disruption-free supply chain operations
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ThroughPut Inc., the industrial AI supply chain pioneer, today announced that it has entered into a technology partnership with project44, the global leader in supply chain visibility, to unlock supply chain profitability amid disruptions and global port congestion.
The partnership will empower mutual customers to not only plan logistics fulfillment effectively and efficiently, but also to forecast demand accurately with AI-powered insights and recommendations for rapid supply chain revenue rationalization. The joint solution will enable businesses to quickly leverage project44 platform’s purchase order and sales data to sense and predict demand at a local level, audit material flow to drive efficiencies and achieve On-Time, In-Full (OTIF) deliveries at a supplier and product level.
"We’re thrilled to be partnering with ThroughPut as we look forward to accelerating the value we deliver to our customers," explained Thomas Deakins, SVP, Global Partnerships & Alliances of project44. "With ThroughPut.ai, we empower our customers to not just optimize their logistics, but their supply chain operations as a whole – something that is crucial in today’s market, where disruptions and uncertainty are more a norm than an exception. ThroughPut’s demand-first, AI-powered, predictive approach to supply chain management is the key to solving the product and customer prioritization puzzle that all businesses seek to solve on an everyday basis these days as they look to expedite lead times and better serve their customers," he added.
"Partnering with project44 allows us access to true lead time data, which complements how we recalculate material and inventory needs from a demand change perspective," said Ali Raza, CEO of ThroughPut Inc. "This is the vital missing link in so many planning systems today – which have consequently either overshot or undershot inventory estimates. As a result, many businesses are unable to optimize a crucial part of their working capital – their inventory. We are therefore excited to announce this ready-to-go integration into project44 as we help C-Suites intelligently optimize their overall working capital and prioritize demand management," he added.
