New Partnership Deepens Breadth of Professional Services, Technology and Resources
York, PA, March 19, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Operational Results Inc. (www.operationalresults.com) announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with York, Pa.-based St. Onge Co. (www.stonge.com)
Operational Results Inc. (ORI) is a leading provider of sales and operations planning and specializes in providing Strategic Planning, Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP), Integrated Business Planning (IBP), Performance Management and Supply Chain solutions. Its contribution to the partnership includes developing, implementing and refining products and services called the S&OP Excellence suite. The suite is a comprehensive assessment tool (Excellence Criteria) that allows its clients to self-measure their processes against “best-in-class” processes, procedures, measurements and results.
St. Onge is a leading independent supply chain consulting firm specializing in supply chain strategy development, end-to-end supply chain assessment, network and inventory optimization, distribution and manufacturing facility design and operational best practices implementation.
"This partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the two companies' respective strengths and expertise."
“This partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the two companies’ respective strengths and expertise,” said Brant Slade, president, ORI. “The Excellence Criteria uses proven methodology and streamlined approaches of both parties to assess a client’s current state processes and provide an easy way to determine where it stands in comparison with ‘best-in-class’ performance. Both parties will now be able to leverage one another's expertise via the ORI Excellence Criteria and S&OP Analytics Application.”
While the S&OP process often identifies a company’s supply chain needs, it does not directly address them. “St. Onge’s approaches S&OP in a holistic manner, which addresses broader root-cause issues, via network and inventory optimization, SKU rationalization, and manufacturing and distribution facility design and operations planning,” says St. Onge President Mike Jones. “By improving both supply chain and facility capacity and responsiveness, St. Onge can enable further improvements within the S&OP process, which allows clients to realize ongoing benefits above and beyond those offered by traditional S&OP implementations.”
ORI has been able to build long-standing relationships with some of the worlds largest companies bringing best-in-class methodologies, experienced consultants and leading edge technologies.
St. Onge has more than 800 client companies covering six continents, spanning a wide array of size and industry, including about 100 members of the Fortune 500, as well as many of the world's premier multinational companies. In addition to its headquarters in York, Pa., the company has offices in Dallas, Nijmegen, The Netherlands and Shanghai, China.
