ANN ARBOR — LLamasoft Inc., the global leader in supply chain design software solutions, today announced the appointment of Business Modelling Associates as the exclusive LLamasoft distributor in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.
Both companies have more than 20 years of experience in supply chain design and this strategic partnership will combine their shared expertise to help Africa’s leading organizations improve their supply chain operations.
Business Modelling Associates is a Johannesburg-based supply chain consulting and software development company specializing in strategy, design, operational planning and analytics solutions. Over the past two decades, the founders of BMA have introduced numerous globally recognised supply chain software solutions into the African continent. This strategic partnership with LLamasoft will further strengthen BMA’s reputation as Africa’s leader in supply chain modeling, design and optimization.
“We have long admired LLamasoft’s leadership and history of innovation in supply chain design,” said Shane Russell, a founding director of Business Modelling Associates. “What this partnership means for local companies is that we can now offer them access to some of the world’s leading supply chain design tools, supported by local expertise and implementation skills.”
A priority for BMA will be to introduce local clients to LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru — the market leading supply chain design and analysis application. It enables companies to model, optimize and simulate their supply chain operations, leading to major improvements in cost, service, sustainability and risk mitigation.
“We have identified synergies in our solution offering whereby we can achieve even higher levels of performance for clients in supply chain network optimization, transportation network design and enterprise simulation,” said Russell.
“LLamasoft is excited to extend our services in the African region, a territory that we consider to have significant growth potential,” said Toby Brzoznowski, executive vice president of LLamasoft. “We look forward to partnering with Business Modelling Associates, a company with a proven track record in supply chain design and innovation.”
