Activplant/Patni partnership to take performance management solution global
London, Ontario – Manufacturing performance management solutions vendor, Activplant, and Patni Computer Systems Ltd., a global IT services provider, have announced a strategic partnership aimed at providing manufacturers a performance management system to drive efficiency and performance across the enterprise. This partnership builds on previously successful implementations between Activplant and Patni with world-class manufacturers around the world.
The collaboration will enable Patni to provide enhanced production performance management services to global manufacturing enterprises in the automotive, pharmaceuticals & life sciences, consumer packaged goods, and food & beverage industries. Similarly, it will provide Activplant with an access to Patni’s industry experts, implementation tools and frameworks and global delivery model. The joint-value proposition will allow the two companies to effectively address the customers’ needs for manufacturing intelligence.
Activplant’s Performance Management System and Throughput Analyzer application provides manufacturers with visibility to true chronic constraints on the plant floor that ultimately improves throughput, product quality and product launches that drive quantifiable performance gains. Activplant’s focus on delivering performance management applications that solve industry critical needs, like production throughput, leads to improvements in plant performance. Automating the identification of chronic constraints on the plant floor, Throughput Analyzer empowers continuous improvement teams with a focused attack plan designed for repeatable/rapid deployment, 10% to 25% throughput improvements and complete ROI in as little as two months.
“This association leverages the strengths of each of our companies, and we look forward to working together to deliver software solutions that will improve the production throughput and lead to improvements in plant performance. Activplant's Performance Management solution will form an important part of the solutions we deliver to customers that provide them with more visibility to their plant floor operations. This combined with Patni’s industry experience and global delivery capabilities will help enterprises maximize the value of their investments in manufacturing performance management systems.” says Sunil Chitale, Senior Vice-President and Head Manufacturing Business Unit Head.
“Patni’s expertise in supply chain management, business process management and enterprise technologies will ensure that the clients derive maximum value from the quick and effective deployment of the Activplant Performance Management System,” said Chuck Frosst, Activplant President. “The world’s manufacturers are facing extreme pressure to continuously improve efficiency and increase the bottom line. This partnership expands both Activplant’s and Patni’s global presence, bringing manufacturers one step closer to realizing their goal of maximum efficiency and throughput improvement.”
