What we are solving for

Sustainability is complex.
Our solutions are designed to help your company overcome these barriers.

Increase visibility

o9 helps solve issues around limited visibility. Our solution identifies key environmental impact data within supply chains and presents a roadmap for mitigation initiatives.


Higher fidelity

Companies struggle with fidelity when mapping environmental impact data, relying on assumptions and secondary data. o9 seamlessly acquires, validates, cleanses, and harmonizes ESG data into the EKG model to inform more accurate decision-making.


Link siloed data

Siloed sustainability data is mostly disconnected from core enterprise planning, execution systems, and business strategies. o9 connects sustainability data with core supply chain planning objectives in a single platform.


Adapt to changing regulation

Organizations need the capacity to respond rapidly to changing compliance and regulation. o9 makes companies agile to changing requirements while still meeting operational performance objectives.

"So with IBP, what we are achieving now is one single source of truth. Everyone aligns behind one number, with the ultimate accountability for IBP being the general manager. So you take the power out of the functions and give it to the general manager to run the business as they see fit, which is unbelievable."

"o9 is moving the team’s workload and energy away from executing mundane, tedious tasks like determining how many units of each SKU go to each store every single week. We're moving them upstream into preseason planning, into developing strategy, and then the system executes automatically."

"We are seeing about a 50% scrap reduction. And that is driven by the fact that we have a line of sight now to our customer forecasts, and we're making decisions to avoid bringing in excess inventory or inventory we don't need."

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. International standards define our criteria. We compute a range of sustainability KPIs and track them against set targets. We then balance these with conventional supply chain KPIs.

Yes. Customization is an essential element of the platform architecture because companies in different industry sectors have varying requirements and use different combinations of standards.

Standards-based sustainability measures are seamlessly integrated with the existing digital twin model to optimize sustainability KPIs with traditional performance indicators.

Existing platforms available on the market today can be characterized as point solutions that exist outside of the core enterprise systems that companies use to manage their operations and supply chains.

To fill this gap, we have extended our core supply chain modeling technology including sustainability metrics and KPIs as optimization variables in a single platform.

leaders say

Enterprises are one of the largest consumers of the Earth’s precious resources. If your planning processes are poor, you use many more resources than you need. IBP is key to ending this practice and meeting your company’s goals. It is both smart for your business and positive for the planet.
