Optimize Anywhere: AIMMS PRO Released
On June 15, Paragon Decision Technology has launched the AIMMS PRO Platform, our Publishing and Remote Optimization Platform. AIMMS PRO is a revolutionary product in the field of optimization technology and will change the way we enable the use of optimization everywhere. To learn more about AIMMS PRO and experience what it can do for your organization, please visit www.aimms.com/aimms-pro-platform.
Testimonial – Astral Foods
One of our early adopters of AIMMS PRO is Astral Foods of South Africa. Working closely with our partner UniSoma, they have rolled out various optimization solutions using AIMMS PRO, in order to better support their business users. This is what they have to say: “AIMMS PRO allows optimization to become a corporate solution instead of just a technical tool. The transparent licensing, updating of applications, and optimization that is done on the server eliminates the need to micro-manage users. In the end, it simply makes implementation faster and easier.” Andries Steyn, Project Coordinator at Astral Foods.

EMEA News: Shell and Deutsche Post DHL
Deutsche Post DHL has recently conducted a scenario study, “Delivering Tomorrow: Logistics 2050”. The study examines five different scenarios of life in the year 2050 and what the implications could be for the logistics business. Last week DHL premiered a video in which Frank Appel, CEO Deutsche Post DHL, states: “Only those who think about alternatives can devise robust strategies”.
A careful observer might see a similarity with the famous Shell Scenarios, currently named “Scramble” and “Blueprint”.
We are very pleased that both Shell and Deutsche Post DHL rely on AIMMS technology to optimize their company’s assets.
