Spinnaker Partners with River Logic to Deliver Optimization-enabled Business Planning Solutions

Houston, TX. July 7th, 2017 - River Logic today announced its new partnership with Spinnaker, a supply chain services company that helps clients grow, manage risk, reduce costs and improve customer service by developing world-class supply chain capabilities.

The partnership aligns with Spinnaker’s strategic growth plan, which aims to triple the revenue of its Supply Chain Consulting practice over the next five years. The plan includes expanding its already strong team of experienced subject matter experts in both supply chain and advanced analytics as well as establishing new partnerships with innovative technology vendors, thus increasing the scope and value of their client offerings.

An added benefit for Spinnaker will be the opportunity to embed its deep knowledge of the critical issues challenging today’s supply chain organizations into River Logic’s unique Prescriptive Analytics platform, resulting in a range of ongoing solutions that deliver client value over the long-term and help to monetize the firm’s core intellectual property.

“As a consulting firm, River Logic’s platform approach is extremely compelling,” said John Sharkey, SVP Supply Chain Consulting. “It's highly intuitive optimization modeling capabilities are extremely flexible, which means we can help our clients address a wide range of complex problems without them having to onboard a team of optimization experts. Better yet, the platform makes it easy for client planners and executives to quickly create and analyze a planning business scenarios that leverage the models we will create during our engagements.”

River Logic shares Sharkey’s enthusiasm. “Spinnaker fits our ideal solution partner profile perfectly,” said Nathan Goldstein, VP Channel Partners. “They’re consultants first and foremost, focused on solving client problems. They have deep functional expertise, strong executive relationships with the customers they serve, and they’re adept at leveraging technology as a piece of the overall puzzle. We’re ecstatic about the opportunity to work alongside this highly qualified and respected team, and we have no doubt customers will be the ultimate benefactors of this collaboration.”

Spinnaker plans to leverage River Logic's platform to target existing challenges within core S&OP and supply chain planning processes across Food & Beverage, Chemicals, Consumer Goods and High-Tech clients. In particular, the firm sees a particular need for supply chain organizations in these verticals to fill the what-if scenario planning and analysis gaps left by existing supply chain planning systems of record.
