Plantensive Partners with Vanguard Software to Enable Supply Chain Marketplace Vision and Growth

Vanguard Predictive Planning Solution Suite to be Offered to Value-Conscious Mid-Market Customers

Cary, NC. – January 20, 2021 – Plantensive, Vaco’s supply chain, retail planning, and category management division, has partnered with Vanguard Software Corporation to enable the future supply chain marketplace vision and growth charted by recently named managing partners Dan Luttner and Derek Cesarz.

The partnership will further cement Plantensive’s position as a leading-edge software, technology, and supply chain innovator by bolstering its service and solution offerings to value-conscious customers in the fast-growing mid-market segment.

“Customer planning needs in this space are no less trivial than those of our Fortune 1000 customers,” said Luttner.  “In fact, planning for supply chain uncertainty has never been more important, but we also recognize the need to meet these planning challenges with scalable solutions that can be delivered at attractive price points.”

Customers acquiring Vanguard Predictive Planning™ through Plantensive will do so as part of an executable roadmap designed to bring the solution to life and enable measurable value realization.

“We’re excited to know a Gartner-recognized firm such as Plantensive will be leading our customers’ supply chain transformation journeys,” said Nathan Goldstein, Vanguard’s Director of Channel Management.  “It’s that type of functional expertise that is needed to maximize customer value and that we will continue to prioritize as we build our global partner network.”
