Testimonials

"Our team has enjoyed working with every single member of the River Logic team on our supply chain network optimization and S&OP project. Everyone on the team was approachable, technically strong, collaborative, customer-focused, and responsive.

Terese Hunwick
VP Supply Chain - Fly Ash, Boral Resources LLC

“We continually use River Logic for visibility and optimization of our network and we see great value from this. The scenario modeling is user-friendly, reliable and fast. The River Logic team is responsive and flexible to our needs. As we go forward, we are looking to gain further value from the tool, particularly in the area of network capabilities and capacities.”

European Supply Chain Team
Upfield (Formerly Unilever)

“We were attracted to the flexibility of River Logic. We can determine things such as where and how to blend coal, adjust plans based on customized multi-criteria optimization, and simulate financial flows. We will continue to use River Logic to streamline our efforts for determining functionally-aligned plans that optimize our performance objectives.”

Alexey Dmitrochenkov
Head of Planning, SUEK Energy

“The main thing that makes River Logic unique is that it starts with your real-world business (product, process, etc) and then attaches the financials. With other planning, you go straight to financials or simplify the inputs.”

Chris McCallum
COO, Shoes of Prey

“One of the key values from River Logic is the ability to bring our functional teams data that they can make actionable…We want them to understand the opportunity cost of producing and selling one more or one less of that product, and River Logic enables that for us.”

Lewis Belknap
VP of Planning, McKee Foods

“The implementation of River Logic makes it possible to plan the delivery time and cost of each postal item, choosing the most optimal routes. This allows us to not only meet delivery deadlines but also to deliver mail faster than the norm and identify bottlenecks in the production and logistics network to promptly eliminate them. Moreover, the system has reduced logistic costs by 10-15%.”

Alexey Skatin
Deputy General Director for Logistics, Russian Postal Service

“We could finally show people in a meeting what it would cost to move away from the best answer, and implement their new policy. It radically shortened the decision-making process and improved stakeholder meetings.”
