Jan. 30, 2020

WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Arkieva, a leading provider of Advanced Planning and Scheduling software tools for manufacturing companies, today announced that Lavazza Professional has implemented the Arkieva Demand Planner to create an enhanced demand planning process.

Lavazza Professional, North American subsidiary of Luigi Lavazza S.p.A., a 120-year old global Italian manufacturer of high-quality coffee products and coffee machines has implemented the Arkieva Demand Planning solution.

"We needed to move our demand plan from an over-simplified and rigid spreadsheet model to a systemized solution that could provide us with a higher degree of statistical rigor. We selected and implemented Arkieva as the best-fit solution to help ensure that sales, marketing, and operations are all working with the same information and focused on the same business goals," said Ashley Holladay, Demand Planning Manager for Lavazza Professional.

The Arkieva Demand Planner helps manufacturers profitably and quickly react to market shifts, supply disruptions, and special events. Arkieva provides solutions for "what-if" scenario analyses across demand, sourcing patterns, capacity, and distribution.

"We are very excited and pleased that Lavazza has implemented the Arkieva Demand Planning solution," said Jelle Clement, Practice Director, Arkieva.
