Betafence, a worldwide leader in integrated perimeter security solutions and fencing systems, has selected OM Partners to implement OMP Plus for Supply Chain Planning.

Betafence will begin to use OMP Plus for Inventory Optimization and Forecasting in the European Operations. The company, which distributes solutions via various channels, has production and distribution sites in Italy, Poland, Belgium, UK, Germany, and beyond. Betafence’s focus was to find an advanced planning tool to further optimize inventory levels while maintaining or improving service levels. As an additional benefit, OMP Plus facilitates a company-wide consensus on the target inventory levels in each location, based on mathematical modeling.

Tom Van Herbruggen, Group Planning Manager at Betafence, explains the company’s decision: “We selected OM Partners after a demonstration using Betafence data. We were especially impressed by their deep insight into supply chain processes. Additionally, we appreciated that OMP Plus is an integrated planning solution, also covering S&OP and Production Planning. OM Partners’ no-nonsense approach convinced us that they are the right partner for us.”

Luc Bongaerts, Business Development Manager at OM Partners, confirms: “We are pleased to work with Betafence, a professional and focused team that is eager to work towards lasting business results. This implementation reconfirms the position of OM Partners in the building products industry.”
