Axxom forms a strategic partnership with renowned Australian supply chain consultants GRA Pty Ltd.
Expansion in Asia Pacific Region and Australia

Expansion in Asia Pacific Region and Australia

Munich/Melbourne, August 20th, 2008 – Australian supply chain consulting company GRA Pty Ltd and German technology provider Axxom Software AG have agreed on a strategic partnership. GRA will use Axxom’s ORion-PI® software in its consulting projects and also distribute the product suite. By the cooperation, GRA strengthens its consulting capabilities and Axxom extends its presence in Australia and the Asia Pacific Region.

Considering the demand for supply chain optimization solutions in the region Asia Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, GRA will distribute, implement and provide local support for the Axxom product suite ORion-PI®. Furthermore, GRA will use ORion-PI® to support its strategic supply chain consulting projects.

The agreement includes the whole Axxom product portfolio, but the initial focus is on ORion-PI® Value Network Optimization. This application is an integrated approach to analyse, design and optimize strategic network scenarios. It offers a holistic End-to-End optimization approach which covers every relationship within the supply chain, from customer locations, production plants and distribution centers to suppliers, manufacturers and distributors. ORion-PI® also considers many constraints and restrictions, like transportation modes, capacities and CO2 emissions.

By the partnership Axxom continues to develop its international presence. The Munich-based company already works together with Australian Universities and had implemented ORion-PI® in diverse supply chain projects in Australia. Furthermore, Axxom has a partnership with the consulting company Ayana-Logis in Asia.

“GRA recognised the gap in the Australian market for supply chain network optimisation tools. We went through an extensive global review process with fourteen different vendors. ORion-PI® was the standout. It was clearly superior to the others because of the quality of solutions and the breadth of the suite. Much of the ORion-PI® technology is new to Australia, and it represents an opportunity for Australian companies to raise the performance bar further”, says GRA Partner Carter McNabb.
