o9 Solutions, a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making, announced it has been selected by Johnsonville, LLC, the most popular brand of sausage in the United States, to transform its supply chain planning capabilities and enable more data-driven planning and decision-making. The family-owned and operated Wisconsin-based company, based in the town that bears their name, sells and serves more than 70 varieties of sausages across 40+ countries and in more than 75 U.S. professional, semi-pro, and college sports stadiums.
Jason Beyersdorf, IT Director at Johnsonville, said: “We choose o9 because of the innovative culture and capabilities. The technology will move us to a single platform and data model, enabling business value in the areas of supply chain execution and financial and integrated business planning (IBP). These new capabilities will also allow us to shutter the fragmented and restrictive legacy technology that was no longer effective in achieving our business goals.”
