WILMINGTON, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arkieva (www.arkieva.com),
the designer and provider of the Arkieva suite of Sales and Operations
Planning (S&OP) software tools for manufacturing companies, announced
today that ONTEX has selected the Arkieva supply chain software to
manage the supply planning and S&OP process.

ONTEX is a leading global producer of disposable personal hygiene
solutions for babies, women and adults. Headquartered in Erembodegem,
Belgium, ONTEX employs over 5,500 people around the globe. Their
high-performance, best-value products are distributed through leading
retail partner brands, as well as under own brands, across several
distribution channels, such as retail trade, care institutions and
pharmacies. ONTEX is also Europe’s leading manufacturer of retailer
branded hygienic disposable products.

As part of an ambitious supply chain improvement program, ONTEX
envisioned an integrated software platform for supply planning and S&OP
reporting that could replace a very labor intensive spreadsheet based
process which limited the capability to perform value adding analysis.

“During the selection process we saw a strong fit between our
functional requirements, the user friendliness of the Arkieva software
and the pragmatic approach of the Solventure team,”
said Noël
Vranckx, Senior Supply Chain Manager at ONTEX. “The Arkieva SAP
connector will also allow for an easy and efficient interface with our
current SAP ERP environment.”

To further streamline and integrate the S&OP process ONTEX will be
working with Solventure, Arkieva’s channel partner in Europe.

“We’re looking forward to working with Solventure,” says Philippe
Agostini, Chief Procurement Officer at ONTEX. “The Arkieva S&OP
software will allow ONTEX to better balance supply and demand, allowing
us to support the continued profitable growth while further increasing
the profitability of the company.”

“We are very excited to have an industry leader like ONTEX place
their confidence in Solventure and in the Arkieva tool,”
said Sujit
Singh, Chief Operating Officer at Arkieva. “We look forward to
supporting ONTEX and the Solventure team in a step change in balancing
service, cost and cash. We believe in our software and know it will
greatly benefit ONTEX’s S&OP process to become even more efficient with
the guidance of Solventure throughout the integration progression.”

The Arkieva Supply Planning and S&OP tool will help ONTEX to quickly
react to changing market conditions, supply disruptions, and special
events. Arkieva is a sophisticated tool for “what-if” scenario analysis
across demand, sourcing patterns, capacity, and distribution.
