River Logic: Optimizing Supply Chain and Logistics Seamlessly

Carlos Centurion, President
Could COVID-19 be the black swan event that finally forces many companies, and entire industries, to rethink and transform their global supply chain model? One fact is beyond doubt: It has already exposed the vulnerabilities of many organizations which arises due to decision-making challenges such as lack of visibility, inability to optimally balance competing objectives and analyze the future impact of decisions, and reliance on heuristics-based approaches. While no one can foresee what’s in store for tomorrow, organizations can work today on building a “smarter” global supply chain. What they need is an expert that can optimize their supply chain and logistics process. Enter River Logic.

With River Logic, customers can prepare for and quickly respond to dynamic markets. Forward-looking insights into operational, financial, and strategic performance help balance competing objectives while achieving business goals. From supplier to customer, clients can respond to unforeseen changes as they build ongoing resilience across their value chain. An integrated financial and operational modeling system, River Logic optimally balances multiple competing objectives across business functions, such as lowering costs, improving service levels, boosting margins, and right-sizing inventory. Clients can consider the end-to-end value chain when creating plans, including transportation capacities, warehouse capacity, procurement contracts, regulatory constraints, and more. “Our customers profit with a rich solution that is uniquely designed to support their specific business model and decision-making challenges. We’re able to deliver unmatched improvements across the end-to-end supply chain, like profit improvements, higher service levels, and increased throughputs,” says Carlos Centurion, President of River Logic.

With an AI Expert system that requires no code, clients can create and optimize a digital twin of your business that represents even the most unique constraints, objectives, and processes. From supplier to customer, they can use rapid scenario analysis to respond to unforeseen changes, like natural disasters or new market share opportunities, without sacrificing key performance objectives. Being an easily extendable optimization model, the system minimizes the amount of effort and IT investment required to address new problems within or outside of a company’s supply chain, thus enabling customers to spend less time wrangling spreadsheets and data and more time exploring the answers to new questions.

The River Logic solution also provides PowerBI reports that allow clients to drill into the details of each scenario and better understand the drivers of their business. Clients can instantly understand the value or cost of their decisions in order to find ways to better use existing resources within the unique constraints of their business. In an instance, River Logic helped a top global consumer packaged goods company in obtaining a new level of visibilty into how their business ran.

This customer is one of the largest SAP customers in the world and used SAP APO to generate their demand plan and then SAP SNP to create supply plan. However, they were continually coming up with unmet demand equal to $500M in lost revenue every year. Despite being one of the most advanced APO users, the team still struggled to balance supply and demand. In fact, they were exporting their demand plan to Excel to understand which demand to short, without even knowing if meeting certain demands was the best for their business. They had a clear need for River Logic’s modeling and optimization capabilities, and leveraged it to address their major objective: “How do we minimize our unmet demand, and stop losing half a billion in revenue a year?” The implementation of River Logic system provided them with €21M in profit movement opportunities.

Such has been the prowess that River Logic has created for the years by serving prestigious clients successfully over the years. Driven to solve tough problems through innovative, groundbreaking software development, River Logic is poised to deliver innovative solutions even in the post-pandemic world.
