Oco, Inc., providers of Software-as-a-Service business intelligence (SaaS BI) solutions, and Tompkins Associates, providers of global supply chain services and best practices consulting, announced a strategic partnership that integrates Tompkins’ vertical-market benchmark metrics with Oco’s supply-chain analytics.
Oco’s supply-chain analytics cover inventory, transportation, supplier performance, distribution, cost-to-serve, profitability analysis and manufacturing operations functions. Users will now have access to benchmark data from the 500+ member companies of the Tompkins Associates' Supply Chain Consortium. Available metrics encompass specific segments within the consumer packaged goods (CPG), industrial, hi-tech, retail, pharmaceutical, and logistics service provider vertical markets.
“This integration will allow customers to quickly compare their aggregated company performance to a relevant peer set and to easily identify their lagging and best performing products, regions, customers, distribution centers, plants, carriers and suppliers,” said Jim Tompkins, President and CEO, Tompkins Associates.
As an example, Welch’s, an existing Oco analytics client, will include Tompkins Associates’ benchmark metrics to compare key transportation operations performance metrics to those of its peers. Welch’s was named the Supply Chain Performance Leader by Ventana Research in 2009, in recognition of its use of Oco's business intelligence BI solutions to achieve greater supply chain performance.
