MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, 1 March 2010 – SolveIT Software Pty Ltd, a leading provider of enterprise software for supply & demand optimisation and predictive modelling, announced today that it has been engaged by Visy to conduct a comprehensive technology review of the company’s fibre supply chain.

SolveIT Software has been working with Visy since 2008 in the area of supply chain optimisation across a variety of Visy business units. As a follow-on project, SolveIT Software will work in partnership with a leading consulting group to carry out a comprehensive supply chain review across the fibre supply chain at Visy.

“To achieve a best-in-class fibre supply chain, we have engaged SolveIT Software to help us identify and document opportunities for improvement within our fibre supply chain,” said Mr Johann Nell, General Manager Supply Chain of Visy. “We believe there are unrealised opportunities that can be uncovered with process and technology changes and we view this supply chain review as a crucial first step in identifying those benefits.”

During the 2007-2008 financial year, Visy employed over 5,600 people, operated from 110 sites, manufactured more than 700,000 tonnes of 100% recycled packaging paper and 300,000 tonnes of plantation-sourced kraft paper, produced more than 850,000 tonnes of packaging products, collected, sorted or processed more than 2 million tonnes of used industrial and post-consumer materials, and generated more than $2.3 billion in revenue.
