In 2002 LLamasoft began marketing their supply chain network software and landed Unilever one of its first big clients after the corporate giant discovered them on the web. Since then it has gone on to win clients across a wide range of industries, including: Dell, Unilever, General Mills, ConocoPhillips, Frito-Lay, Arcelor-Mittal (the world’s largest steel company), Johnson & Johnson, and US Departmen t of Defense.
Supply Chain GuruTM, LLamasoft's signature software, allows clients to evaluate important and potentially risky strategic changes to their supply chain network through optimization and simulation modeling. This can include everything from sourcing and manufacturing to inventory and transportation.
This 17 employee company continues to grow at a rapid pace, having and expects to add 3-5 primarily technical employees before the end of the year.
