BP testimonial AIMMS PRO

“The simplicity and ease of browser-based access to our AIMMS tools provided by the AIMMS PRO platform has removed a significant entry barrier for our user community. A brand new user can now simply click on a web page and literally in 5 minutes have an AIMMS optimization model loaded and running on his local machine. This has greatly expanded the number of our team members who now routinely access and apply our AIMMS models.

The AIMMS PRO platform has also simplified and streamlined model maintenance procedures for our AIMMS Developers. With AIMMS PRO, deploying a new update to an AIMMS model, or even a completely new version of AIMMS, only requires publishing a new version on the AIMMS PRO server. This just takes a few minutes, and replaces the previous procedure which took anywhere from days to weeks – depending on the level of internal IT support required. Using AIMMS Pro we have cut our response-time for serving urgent user requests to a matter of hours.

The combined impact of these changes has been remarkable. For example, in the first three months since migrating to the AIMMS PRO platform, we have seen our user base expand five-fold for one of our core scheduling applications. And with so many new eyes reviewing this application, the data are more reliable, and we are producing better schedules than ever before.”
