Pharma company implementing John Galt solution to improve supply chain visibility

Chicago, IL — May 7, 2004 — The Canadian unit of pharmaceutical group Sanofi-Synthelabo is set to implement a demand management solution from John Galt Solutions in a bid to improve its supply chain visibility.

A global research-based company with 32,500 employees in more than 100 countries, Sanofi-Synthelabo has sales worldwide of about $9.7 billion.

The Canadian unit of the company will implement Galt's Demand Management Engine, which is the forecasting and demand management component of the provider's Atlas Planning Suite.
