John Galt Solutions announced today that Reddy Ice, a leading provider of packaged ice in the United States, has selected John Galt’s Atlas Planning Suite to support its demand planning process.
The demand for packaged ice varies in myriad ways and requires a robust solution in order to forecast and plan for this demand. Variables for ice demand include seasonality, weather, events and more. With Reddy Ice supplying the market with 1.8 million tons of ice annually through thousands of sellers, Reddy Ice’s sales and operations planning needed an automated system to capture and compile the available data, produce an accurate statistical forecast, and then integrate that into the demand and supply plan.
After researching dozens of options, Reddy Ice chose John Galt’s Atlas Planning Suite for its core abilities to meet Reddy Ice’s requirements and the flexibility to configure and grow the solution as Reddy Ice’s needs evolve.
“We expect to be able to increase efficiency while simultaneously increasing the service levels to our customers,” commented Bobby Wehmeyer, Vice President of Supply Chain at Reddy Ice. “The John Galt implementation team has been fantastic in working with us and meeting our constantly changing requirements to ensure our project is a success.”
“Modeling demand and producing a distribution plan for packaged ice is no easy task,” said Anne Omrod, President & CEO of John Galt Solutions. “Reddy Ice made the right decision because our tool was built with flexibility in mind, and we have a superb team of experts to craft the right S&OP solution for our customers.”
