The intuitive design and ease of configuration makes the Starboard network design solution stand out. The solution is built for continuous use, eliminating the need for a consulting project to model potential resolutions to unexpected supply chain disruptions.
“Now more than ever, supply chain leaders need solutions to help them see around the corner, plan for plausible changes and quickly pivot to keep their businesses moving forward. Adding Starboard into Logility’s portfolio mix gives our clients that and more, Starboard gives Logility clients the confidence to make the right multibillion dollar investment decisions based on sustainability profile, risk, cost and service.”
