aioneers’ Supply Chain Consulting Team Joins EFESO Management Consulting

aioneers GmbH, a leading expert in AI-powered supply chain analytics and decision intelligence software and EFESO Management Consulting, an international pure player in operations strategy and performance improvement announce, that the aioneers’ supply chain consulting team will join EFESO by a carve-out. The transaction will provide both the consulting team, which previously belonged to aioneers, and the software business, which will remain within the company, with the best possible framework and conditions for sustainable growth.

aioneers consisted of two business units. The consulting team is now part of EFESO and will serve its clients under the brand AIONEERS-EFESO. The aioneers technology team will focus on expanding its software business, especially on the development of AIO, its leading AI-powered supply chain analytics and decision intelligence platform. The cooperation between the EFESO group and the aioneers technology team, which has been fostered through several projects, will continue and intensify.  

"The successful carve-out opens up new, promising paths for both parts of our company. The consulting team will be able to benefit from synergies, knowledge, and the global presence of EFESO, while the technology business unit of aioneers can focus on the development of software solutions that improve the intelligence and efficiency of supply chain management for customers worldwide”, comments Dr. Christoph Kilger, CEO Revenue & Solutions at aioneers.

The role of technology is changing in the strategic design, planning and operational management of global supply chains. Customers increasingly expect smart, AI-powered technology to deliver maximum value and ROI in supply chain management. To achieve this, it’s key to combine expertise in technology and in operations. The joint EFESO and AIONEERS-EFESO team will amplify its footprint in this area. 

“With offices in Mannheim (Germany) and Pune (India), AIONEERS-EFESO will accelerate our growth globally by bringing in robust capabilities and a proven track record in supply chain planning and transformation”, says Bruno Machiels, co-CEO at EFESO.  “In addition to cutting-edge methodological skills in supply chain planning, the team has in-depth experience in leveraging key, future-ready platforms in supply chain planning to drive an overall business transformation”, he adds. 

AIONEERS-EFESO team brings significant experience in supply chain planning and S&OP projects. This starts from supply chain strategy definition to global target picture design, advanced planning system selection as well as transformations of planning processes, organization and state-of-the-art planning system implementation. This is supported by strong digitalization project delivery skills, powered-up by AI solutions, and holistic business transformation and change management. 

“Looking ahead, together we will enhance our role as a value-adding partner for our customers, serving as a bridge between their business requirements and state-of-the-art technology solutions. This will enable us to generate substantial value and competitive advantages for our customers in their supply chain performance”, states Luca Lecchi, co-CEO at EFESO. 

Both, aioneers Technologies and EFESO Management Consultants are committed to ensuring a seamless transition for clients and maintaining the highest level of service excellence throughout the integration process.
