We can hardly believe it’s that time already. 2022 is fast drawing to a close, and what an eventful year it has been. This has been another significant year underscoring how vital the supply chain is to the world, and how critical it is for companies to strengthen and evolve their supply chain planning strategies in the midst of major challenges and disruptions. It’s probably safe to move past “the new normal” and just call this normal.

Supply chains are moving at incredible speed, growing more interconnected than ever before in the face of new and unforeseen challenges. At John Galt Solutions, we’re ahead pushing the envelope, consistently transforming the latest innovations into practical applications that are easy to use and understand in our Atlas Planning Platform. We are committed to helping supply chains around the world navigate disruptions and solve today's critical operational challenges while building resilience for tomorrow.

It’s been a significant, event-filled year for us. Both our technology and team are growing, so let’s take a moment to look back on 2022 and reflect. Needless to say, we’ve already got our sights set on a bigger and better 2023!

Before the calendar resets, let’s wrap up 2022 with a few highlights:

A Growing Community of Supply Chain Fans

Let’s start with our community of customers, our supply chain fans! We remain focused and fully committed to customer value and delivering exceptional service. To stay connected with this growing community, we opened 3 new offices in 2022 – Atlanta, London and Warsaw (read more).

Throughout 2022, we were over the moon to see our customers rave about the Atlas Planning Platform and our services across sites such as Gartner Peer Insights and Capterra, where our Atlas Planning Platform is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars.

Here’s just a small sample of what some of you said this past year:

"The single platform architecture is a great advantage in integrating our process end to end -as opposed to cobbling together multiple standalone solutions."

“Our experience with Atlas Planning has been outstanding! The consultants are very professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and they understand our business - which is a plus.”

“The solution is leading edge and superior to other solutions we investigated. The team supporting us is very knowledgeable on the tools and on the business practices we are trying to automate.”

"John Galt Solutions has been a critical partner for our Supply Chain team as we have grown over the years. We have relied on their expertise and agility as we have scaled in a high growth business."

"We have successfully integrated multiple ERPs into Atlas to obtain Supply Chain visibility using a data warehouse interface (ease of implementation of Atlas). With Atlas we have delivered Supply Chain Visibility and Action across multiple business units.”

“I am using Atlas daily to understand outliers in business- where we can quickly and efficiently impact business. I finally have access to a full view of data that allows me to decipher what I need to do immediately.”

Driving Innovation Across the Atlas Planning Platform

The Atlas Planning Platform is at the forefront of supply chain innovation to help companies across industries solve today's critical operational challenges, increase network visibility, augment human decisions, and build resilience for tomorrow.

We are constantly evolving the platform, enhancing the breadth and depth of capabilities and introducing the latest advances in technology. Just a couple of examples from this past year include our enhancement of real-time multi-enterprise supply chain visibility to boost risk response strategies, and further developments to our high-fidelity digital model with panoramic and detailed visibility across the end-to-end supply chain. These updates allow companies to make the most of their data and gain a deeper level of visibility into the network for increased real-time updates across large, global planning environments.

With a solid focus on our customers, we released improvements to elevate user experience, bringing smarter tools that further support automation and deliver advanced analytics. We also enhanced our graph database which helps companies gain insights from complex connections between data and the relationships between seemingly unrelated items – which translates to powerful, actionable insights for making better decisions faster.

Our continuously enhanced technology stays ahead of the curve, ensuring we are well positioned to constantly innovate and provide the support companies need to progress in their supply chain maturity journey. Every update to further develop our highly configurable solutions is aimed at paving our customers’ way towards achieving their goals; we deliver the benefits you seek today while preparing you for the future.
