Our Value to our Clients Goes beyond Savings and Increased Profit
Adexa planning solutions are designed to be both flexible (or adaptive) and accurate with the use of attributes throughout the supply chain. In addition, Adexa eGPS uses a Unified Data Model (UDM) which is more than a single data model. UDM enables one point of integration for high level planning and low level execution thus allowing expansion to higher levels of detail or contraction to more abstract modeling. Lastly, the distributed architecture is designed to deliver Real-Time response where needed with the use of Intelligent Agents.
