Belmont, Mass., May 2023 – Smart Software, Inventory optimization, demand planning, and forecasting software leader, and Optimum Consulting, today announced their partnership to address the supply chain planning needs of the Manufacturing, Wholesale, and Retail industries in Australia and New Zealand. Optimum Consulting will sell and deploy Smart’s next-generation cloud platform, Smart Inventory Planning & Optimization (Smart IP&O™), as an integral part of its Sales, Operations, and Inventory Planning (SIOP) practice.
Smart Software is a Microsoft Co-sell-ready partner and, over the years, has created a flawless connector to integrate tools with Microsoft Dynamics. The integration brings the cloud-based Smart IP&O (Inventory Planning and Optimization) into the latest version of Microsoft Dynamic solution. By seamlessly integrating strategic planning in Smart IP&O with operational execution in Dynamics, business users can continuously predict, respond, and plan more effectively in today’s uncertain business environment. Smart’s unique approach to planning intermittent demand is especially impactful for public utilities and transit agencies, given the prevalence of spare parts with highly sporadic, seemingly unforecastable usage.
