Quintiq (News - Alert), a SAP-certified company that provides supply chain planning and workforce optimization (SCP&O) solutions, enables enterprises to improve efficiency at every stage of the supply chain journey. Enterprises increasingly turn to Workforce optimization solutions to improve efficiency and effectiveness of their customer interactions. These solutions help them capture interactions across all channels, analyze to reveal insights, and drive actions that impact business results and customer experience.
Quintiq recently showcased its enterprise workforce optimization solutions at Mastering SAP (News - Alert) HR & Payroll Conference held in Melbourne, Australia, to demonstrate how enterprises can identify new and different ways to use SAP HR & Payroll functionality to generate business results.
Quintiq's workforce optimization solution is increasingly used as a fatigue management tool. It powers end-to-end planning and optimization of personnel, resources, and processes in a single planning environment, across all planning horizons.
According to Paul Shepherd, director of Quintiq Australia and New Zealand, fatigue management is an increasingly important issue in organizations concerned with employee and public safety, such as those in aviation. Several customers including Airservices Australia, the nation's air navigation service provider, have turned to Quintiq to optimize personnel, resources and processes in their organizations.
"We have worked with Airservices, on transforming their workforce planning to achieve critical HR obligations and organizational objectives in the areas of government regulatory and labor law compliance; scheduling, recruitment and training; integrating with SAP Payroll,” Shepherd added.
Quintiq recently announced two major appointments. Earlier this month the company appointed Kim Rhodes as vice president, general counsel, and secretary of the Company. Rhodes previously worked with Fiberlink Communications and Citi Prepaid.
Earlier in Februay, Quintiq appointed Jeffrey Vail as chief marketing officer for the company. Vail previously served as senior vice president of Global Corporate Marketing for Siemens (News - Alert) Enterprise Communications and previously held senior marketing positions with SAP and Unisys Corp.
