SAVILLS’ new supply chain division has selected Opturion to support artificial intelligence for its industrial clients.
Opturion provides AI technology to optimise operations and support decision making in transport, logistics manufacturing and maintenance. This will build upon other tools Savills has recently added to its stable including SA1’s Nodemaster and Orcoda’s Logistics Management System.
Opturion’s managing director Alan Dormer said the relationship with Savills will further leverage the use of Opturion to match supply of resources to demand.
“It will allow Savills to assist clients tailor their supply chains to make them more efficient and effective.”
Savills supply chain director Bob Quirk said the firm selected Opturion, “because they are an Australian company that has the power to help us tap into the well of a client’s big data and use it quickly to help understand and optimise its supply chain.”
“I’ve used AI to create ‘heuristics’ or ‘rules of thumb’ to quickly enable good decision making through ‘backward chaining’ or reverse engineering from outcomes to relevant inputs. Instead of an organisation drowning in data and unable to act, AI can support leadership to fast-track action by considering the relationship of factors to speed complex decision-making. It provides the ability to move faster in the marketplace to changing trends and customer needs,” he said.
