15 Jul 2021

BOSTON (July 15, 2021) ToolsGroup, a global leader in supply chain planning software, and Supply Chain Process Improvement, Inc. (SCPI), a provider of supply chain planning, coaching, consulting, and analytical services, are extending their partnership to offer planning BPO (business process outsourcing) services. The combination of ToolsGroup’s cloud-based Service Optimizer 99+ planning software and SCPI’s focused, personalized BPO offering gives more companies a clear path to improve planning processes and results.

SCPI’s business approach creates long-lasting relationships with clients through quality solutions and personalized attention. The new joint BPO offering leveraging the exceptional customer focus and supply chain process expertise of the SCPI team and ToolsGroup’s digital supply chain planning software enables businesses to digitize planning with expert guidance. Customers can choose ongoing planning outsourcing or a gradual transfer of planning process ownership as the internal team gains expertise.

“With the increase in demand uncertainty and supplier constraints, companies know they need to step up to digital planning, but they’re overwhelmed by supply chain software options,” said Steve Spratt, SCPI’s vice president of supply chain services. “They’re worried about making the wrong technology choice and may not have the expertise to implement the critical processes behind it. Outsourcing planning creates a path to improved business results for companies previously unable to access world-class planning solutions.”

“We’re excited to expand on an already successful partnership with the SCPI team,” added David Barton, ToolsGroup’s general manager of North America. “Our combined BPO solution  helps more companies overcome the technology, talent, and process barriers to creating resilient supply chains.”
