Dallas, TX  — February 15, 2015 — Viewlocity and FDC Solutions (FDC) today announced a strategic alliance that will provide companies that have large complex supply chains with an integrated SCM solution — ViewlytICS.  ViewlytICS is built on the Viewlocity Control Tower Platform and the FDC Inventory Capital Solutions (ICS) suite of inventory and distribution solutions.

Both organizations are pioneers in helping organizations that are challenged with managing their extended supply chains to manage and minimize supply chain risk while reducing inventory carrying costs.  FDC’s ICS software is an inventory simulation and planning system that reduces inventory levels and safeguards service, while the Viewlocity SCM suite of products provides real time visibility and control for event responsiveness and optimization.

“Viewlocity is committed to providing best of breed Supply Chain Management solutions,” said Chris Anderson, President of Viewlocity.  “With the development of ViewlytICS,  our customers now can scenario model and risk model inventory positions across the extended supply chain, while the Viewlocity Control Tower solution enables companies to access this critical information in real-time and make appropriate changes to logistics schedules.”

“Viewlocity shares our commitment to providing organizations with best of breed solutions for managing inventories and minimizing risk,” noted Robert Jenkins, Co-Principal of FDC. “FDC’s ICS software is a revolutionary system that applies insurance risk technology to the supply chain, allowing customers to adjust stock holdings relative to the risk levels detected.  In this context, advance supply chain event notifications from Viewlocity will exponentially improve our ability to analyze and revise planned purchase orders. We’re excited to work with Viewlocity to provide a more comprehensive and capital-efficient supply chain management solution for our clients,” he added.
