AIMMS and UniSoma renew Partnership Agreement to deliver the value of Prescriptive Analytics to the Americas Market

logo_unisoma_grande_transparente.pngFebruary 1, 2017 - AIMMS, an award-winning vendor of Prescriptive Analytics software, and UniSoma, a leading provider of Advanced Planning solutions, have renewed their partnership agreement, celebrating years of collaboration. Through their partnership, the companies have served many industry giants like JBS, Suzano, ArcelorMittal, Marfrig, Votorantim, Gerdau and others. With their renewed agreement, they formalize their commitment to bring innovative AIMMS-based analytics solutions that result in significant business value to clients at a global level.

UniSoma has worked closely with AIMMS for two decades and became an AIMMS Partner not long after they started using AIMMS. UniSoma was the first company in Latin America to use the AIMMS platform to develop complex decision-making solutions. The companies have thus far provided supply chain, planning and production optimization solutions for leading corporations in food production, pulp and paper, steel, agribusiness, among others. As a partner, UniSoma is primarily responsible for developing decision models, designing, implementing and maintaining AIMMS Apps for customers. AIMMS is accountable for developing and maintaining the AIMMS software and supporting UniSoma in sales and implementation.

The two organizations work closely together to ensure customer success and have enabled their clients to achieve substantial financial return through optimized decision making. Two great examples of clients being serviced in this partnership are: 

  • JBS, a global leader in beef, lamb and poultry processing with annual revenue of $45 billion, is a joint customer. Using an AIMMS-based tool developed by UniSoma for cost-to-serve optimization, the company was able to increase its original margin by 25%. The system and decision models developed enable them to respond rapidly to changing market prices on a daily basis at over 50 primary processing plants for 2000+ SKUs.
  • AcelorMittal, the world’s leading integrated steel and mining company with an annual revenue of $ 63 billion, also benefited from this cooperation. The company chose AIMMS and UniSoma to develop personalized planning tools to facilitate the expansion of its operation in the Brazilian Market. Strategic and operational decisions were improved by comprehending millions of variables crucial to optimize the coal-to-steel-to-client process, enabling AcelorMittal to increase profitability.  

"We are excited to take our partnership with UniSoma to the next level," says AIMMS' Gertjan de Lange, SVP Connecting Business and Optimization. "UniSoma's staff has extensive knowledge of AIMMS and an impressive track record in delivering value with their supply chain planning solutions. We are committed to fostering the growth of both of our organizations."

“Our commitment to our clients in delivering valuable solutions is strengthened by using AIMMS as our development platform,” says Luis Pinto, International Market Accounts Manager at UniSoma. “In our 20 years of partnership, we’ve seen how the technology behind AIMMS has continuously evolved, guaranteeing an agile and complete environment making it possible to transform businesses through advanced analytics solutions. I look forward to seeing the next 20 years.”
