The action sports and fashion company will leverage the operational intelligence platform to streamline sales, allocation and supply fulfillment as it progressively transforms business.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – May 16, 2017 – PRLog — OpsVeda, the SaaS provider of Operational Intelligence solutions, announced that Boardriders Inc., a leading action sports apparel company is live on the OpsVeda platform. The platform enables quick realization of the plans the company management has laid out for its turnaround. OpsVeda clients use the real-time platform for early identification of operational opportunities and risks.

“Use of OpsVeda has already yielded significant savings, cost avoidance, and efficiency gains. It enabled us to scale Sales Operations without backfilling or adding additional headcount,” said Brian Sininger, Head of Sales Operations and Customer Service Americas at Boardriders Inc. He added, “Lost sales have reduced due to visibility to future inbound supplies, expedites are fewer and we now have an accurate view of the risky transactions that need our attention.”
“OpsVeda is a great partner. They are committed to our industry, and are bringing cutting edge capability with predictive visibility into sales operations and supply chain,” said Nicolas Foulet, Global CIO, Head of e-Commerce and Digital Marketing at Boardriders Inc.
“Turnarounds can be intense. That is when execution efficiency matters the most. When you are trying out different options and running against time, agility and discipline can be your biggest asset,” said Sanjiv Gupta, Founder and CEO at OpsVeda. “We were always confident that Boardriders will see early benefits. Our platform is tailor-made for the kind of execution issues they had. Our experience with apparel, fashion and footwear industry processes ensured that we delivered quickly and with precision!”
Boardriders plans to expand use of OpsVeda platform to its Europe and Asia Pacific operations. Deployment to additional processes like new product introduction, sourcing, manufacturing and retail management is also being evaluated.
