Radnor, Pa.—April 4, 2013—Supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O) platform provider Quintiq Inc., launched a new business unit focused on meeting increasing demand from its rapidly growing customer base in the oil, gas and petrochemical industry. The new business unit will be led by Quintiq’s Simon Rogers, Commercial Director and Coen Verberk Operational Director.
“Historically, the industry used various niche point solutions and spreadsheets to plan and schedule its resources,” said Rogers. “As market volatility increased and value chains have become more integrated and complex, these solutions fail to manage risk or account for all relevant KPIs. Quintiq empowers companies to optimize their value chains over all time horizons, fully accounting for risks. I look forward to leading, along with Coen, Quintiq’s significant business growth and momentum in the challenging oil and gas sector.”
Quintiq’s SCP&O solutions help some of the largest oil and gas companies in the world to optimize their business planning and make fast, collaborative and well-informed decisions across their businesses. Quintiq can be applied to every part of the supply chain including production, processing and distribution and to all planning levels from strategic planning to operational scheduling.
A chemical engineer, Rogers has over 25 years of SCP&O experience in the oil and gas industry. Prior to joining Quintiq, Rogers’ roles included Vice President of Sales and Marketing for M3 Technology; Chief Information Officer of KBC Advanced Technologies; and Director of Honeywell’s advanced applications business unit.
Verberk has more than 20 years’ experience in supply chain planning and optimization.
