Avendus advises Orchestro on its strategic acquisition by E2open

5th July 2016 | Bethesda | Investment Banking

E2open, the largest and most comprehensive supply chain operating network, today announced that it has acquired Orchestro, the leading provider of demand signal repositories and preemptive analytics for retail and Omni-channel fulfillment.

“ERP systems were not designed to address the complexities of multi-enterprise supply chains. Manufacturers are accelerating their use of trading partners for manufacturing, distribution, and transportation. E2open's solutions allow the best-run supply chains to thrive within today's vastly more complex operating environment. With the addition of Terra Technology and Orchestro, E2open is the only company that can provide true end-to-end planning, collaboration and execution, from raw materials to final delivery to the consumer” said E2open CEO Michael Farlekas. “Our recent acquisition of Terra Technology allowed us to help our clients sense demand across the network. With the addition of Orchestro, we will leverage daily, store-item data to create the world's only demand-driven Supply Chain Operating Network.”

“Orchestro's vision was to leverage Big Data to make big decisions in the retail and consumer packaged goods supply chain,” said Orchestro CEO PV Boccasam. “We can now combine one true demand signal with Demand Sensing technologies to enable manufacturers to become proactive in preventing out of stocks, provide actionable insight from source to shelf, and preempt expensive disruptions in the supply chain.”

Puneet Shivam, Head-US and Co-Head of Outsourcing Group, Avendus, said, “We continue to witness growing interest and investments in analytics technology platforms as players in multiple, data rich verticals including retail and CPG look to harness real-time predictive analytics to enhance customer experience and business outcomes. Orchestro-E2Open-Terra combination is very well positioned set the standard in endto-end, Omni-channel supply chain optimization solutions.”
