Nutritional food and beverage company names o9 “Builder of the Year” for its partnership in delivering demand and supply planning on AI-powered platform
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ai—o9 Solutions, the premier AI-powered platform for driving digital transformation of integrated planning and operations capabilities, today announced it was named “Builder of the Year” by Premier Nutrition Corporation. Part of Post Holdings’ active nutrition business, Premier Nutrition presented o9 representatives with the award at its Emeryville, CA, headquarters as part of its Suppliers of the Year Awards ceremony.
o9 is the first technology solution provider to receive the honor from Premier Nutrition. At the ceremony, Premier Nutrition executives recognized o9 for its ability to challenge the status quo, and for its speed in delivering capabilities including “what-if” scenario planning, real-time upload of transactional data, and production schedule commitments with the click of a button.
The partnership between the two companies began in January 2017, when Premier Nutrition selected o9 to deliver an integrated supply chain and operations planning platform. Demand planning went live in June 2017, followed by supply planning in January 2018 and sales and operations planning (S&OP) in April 2018. The o9 platform gave the nutritional food and beverage company visibility into demand, supply, and inventory, removing inefficiencies and enabling planners to move away from manual planning in spreadsheets.
During the awards ceremony, Steve Sernett, Premier Nutrition’s Vice President of Supply Chain, stated, “Like a true partner, o9 consultants worked nights and off-hours to ensure that our team’s concerns were addressed. They provided training to our employees to become o9 superusers so we can be independent and meet our needs faster. We believe that this is the tip of the iceberg as we extend the solution to our Procurement and Logistics teams. o9 Solutions is a great partner, and their actions show that their main goal is to build a positive, long-term relationship with Premier.”
Speaking on behalf of o9 Solutions, CEO Chakri Gottemukkala, stated, “We at o9 are deeply honored to receive the Builder of the Year award from Premier Nutrition. Throughout our two-year partnership, they have embraced o9 as an extension of their own team, making it a true pleasure to work with them. This award demonstrates success in our mission to digitally transform our customers’ operations, and I congratulate the entire o9 team who made it happen. We look forward to serving as a valued partner to Premier Nutrition for years to come.”
