John Galt Innovation Labs is a research center that works in tandem with our customers and partners to develop planning solutions that tackle real-world challenges and provide measurable value across a diverse range of industries. Our innovation lab is driven by the John Galt vision of building long-term partnerships with our customers and working with them every step of their digital supply chain planning journey to make better and faster decisions.
The secret sauce of the John Galt Innovation Lab is our team of experts – from our software developers who improve our computational performance, our data scientists who develop new machine learning algorithms, and our services team that works closely with customers. We are constantly exploring new ideas and challenging the conventional. As part of our strategy, we focus on three key areas:
We know that each business has unique requirements, challenges, and goals and therefore, their planning software must be flexible. This is why we create minimum viable products (MVPs) that our customers and partners test to gauge performance. Using real-world customer data and a continuous feedback process allows our software developers to modify, tailor and improve the MVPs - helping us focus on the right outcomes and strike a balance between performance and innovation.
We take an integrated approach that blends best practices and continuously deliver high-quality software in close cooperation with our software team and customers. We set our sights on delivering product enhancements that not only incorporate the latest technology but also solve customers’ real-world challenges.
The Atlas Planning Platform is designed to solve a broad range of planning challenges with minimal configuration and without costly custom development. On rare occasions, select customers will request industry-specific or organization-specific development projects, which John Galt accommodates for the benefit of that customer.
By leveraging IoT, POS and weather data, we built machine learning algorithms that optimized Reddy Ice’s transportation route delivery system resulting in the following improvements:
The end objective of everything we do at the John Galt Innovation Lab is to create solutions that help our customers achieve extraordinary success. We work very closely with customers to shape new opportunities and test next-generation technology.
