SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--DynaSys, a leading provider of demand and supply chain planning solutions, today announced that Vaillant Industrial, part of the Vaillant Group, one of Europe's leading heating and boiler manufacturing companies, will implement the DynaSys Cloud Production Planning solution to improve its manufacturing planning process. DynaSys is a division of QAD Inc. (Nasdaq: QADA) (Nasdaq: QADB).
“Working with DynaSys is a huge leap forward,” said Vaillant Industrial’s Head of Supply Chain, Adrian Ancliff. “Implementing DynaSys Production Planning gives us a more advanced system that delivers what we need to successfully future proof our business model while giving us the agility to adapt quickly to ongoing change.”
The Vaillant Group was founded in 1874 and is currently the second-largest company in the European heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) industry. Its core business centers on the development and distribution of energy-saving, environmentally friendly heating systems and water heaters based on natural gas and renewable energy sources. An estimated 30 million households worldwide use Vaillant Group technology.
After thoroughly investigating several demand and supply chain vendors, Vaillant chose DynaSys because it provides:
- A comprehensive production planning tool.
- The ability to easily incorporate DynaSys Demand Planning in the future.
- The best deployment model (Cloud) for their business.
- A structured Easy On Boarding project methodology that provides the ability to start simply and grow quickly.
“We are pleased to add the Vaillant Industrial Belper site to our community of DynaSys users,” said DynaSys Managing Director Ariel Weil. “By working collaboratively with Vaillant stakeholders, and by engaging our services division early in the sales cycle, we were able to learn the unique complexities of their business and demonstrate how our Production Planning solution could help them to streamline their manufacturing. We were also able to show them how implementing DynaSys Demand Planning would help to further modernize their supply chain and reduce their costs.”
The Vaillant Group is a global family-owned company that develops highly efficient products and solutions for heating, cooling and hot water. The company employs over 12,000 people worldwide and generates an annual turnover of approximately 2.3 billion euros. This makes the Vaillant Group the second-largest company in its sector in Europe.
