Horváth & Partners partners up with Swiss technology start-up Modum

Modum and Horváth & Partners collaborate to improve supply chain steering capabilities, thereby minimizing supply chain risks with the use of cutting-edge technology such as Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain.

Together the two companies offer strategic guidance and supply chain optimization from one hand. Clients in the area of distribution of sensitive goods, such as food or pharmaceuticals can now benefit from the joint expertise of management consultants Horváth & Partners and next generation supply chain optimization provider Modum.

With value chains becoming more complex, a lack of visibility of key supply chain events and trends can impact a company’s ability to control and steer the supply chain effectively. Additional challenges in supply chain management are the lack of available trusted information, high error risk and long process times due to manual and fragmented processes as well as missing cost-attractive solutions for end-to-end condition monitoring.

By bridging the digital and the physical world, Modum enables trusted data driven steering of supply chains. Based on measurement and transmission of environmental condition and location data with smart sensors, Modum allows their customers to analyze data on the fly in order to gain a better understanding in their supply chain and recognize future trends. As a result, processes can be automatically triggered on event-driven parameters and an agreed rule-set. Manufacturers, processors and distributors can act based on the gained insights, which derive from a single, trusted and globally available source.

Combined with Horváth & Partners’ expertise in developing effective supply chain strategies, steering concepts and its deep knowledge in performance optimization and corporate management, this offers customers a truly value-adding partnership to level up their supply chain steering capabilities – from idea to implementation.

«We are confident that partnering with Horváth & Partners enables us to give our customers even more holistic support on how to optimize their value chains and on how to making their supply chain management fit for 21st century market and supply chain dynamics and cost-efficiency requirements», said Simon Dössegger Modum’s CEO about this new collaboration.

Kai Gindner, who leads Horváth & Partners’ health care practice in Switzerland added, «In partnership with Modum we are now able to offer our customers end-to-end connectivity of ecosystem partners, complete supply chain network transparency and reliable product traceability. Modum’s solution combines powerful disruptive technologies that offer new possibilities for corporate management and performance optimization – it is therefore a perfect fit for us.»
