sedApta

sedApta is an international formed group formed by the union of technology companies based in Italy, Germany, France and Brazil. Each company is a leader in their industry, and together we share over 30 years of experience in IT Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management.

The integration of planning and execution is becoming increasingly important, allowing manufacturing companies to equip themselves with tools that can improve responsiveness to last-minute variations in demand in terms of both production and purchasing. A key factor lies in a company’s ability to synchronize procurement and manufacturing aspects: the first one concerns development and the integrated management of supplier networks, the second one the production network. Today many companies operate within global supply networks, including customers, suppliers and production plants in different countries, and this complicates the synchronization of all the different actors.

Based on over 30 years of industrial experience, the sedApta Suite is an all-in-one solution to optimize processes along the entire supply chain. The Suite features an integrated set of our Sales & Operations Planning solutions, Manufacturing Operations Management solutions, and process optimization solutions. The integrated modules are supported by our innovative Process Orchestration, Support & Analytics platform, which serves as a “digital backbone” and allows companies to continuously improve business process by promoting a culture of change.
