LLamasoft Inc., an Ann Arbor-based company that produces supply chain optimization software and solutions, has announced it will expand into the DACH region of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, the largest IT market in Europe.
Michael Wallraven, regional vice president, will oversee LLamasoft Deutschland GmbH.
“The DACH region is an important market for us with significant sales potential,” says Wallraven. “With our head office in Munich, we are close to our customers, and our team of experienced specialists can offer optimum service.”
LLamasoft’s supply chain design platform helps companies model, optimize, and simulate global supply chains. Its Supply Chain Guru is used by more than 650 companies worldwide. The company also offers users professional supply chain design services and access to an active community of experts.
“For large companies across numerous vertical industries, supply chain design is an important issue as they need to manage increasingly complex global networks,” says Wallraven.
“We offer decision support by answering important supply chain questions such as: How can we optimize process costs? How can we reduce risk? How can we improve service to customers? What do Brexit or international trade conflicts mean for my supply chain? Here, our solutions enable and improve not only data-based strategic decisions, but also tactical decisions.”
LLamasoft also has subsidiaries in the United Kingdom and France.
