Ultriva, Inc.
1601 S. De Anza Blvd.
Cupertino, CA, 95014
USA



Press release date: December 20, 2013

Ultriva is continuing expansion with a global provider of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The $61 billion Heating and Air Conditioning industry is heavily influenced by activity in the construction market, with the majority of industry income generated from HVAC installations in new residential and nonresidential structures. The recovery and revival of the housing market have put the economic recession in the rearview mirror caused new construction activity to increase dramatically. These factors increase demand for HVAC installations across all construction markets and portends great growth for Ultriva.

Known as a pioneer in Kanban solutions, Ultriva CEO Narayan Laksham and the team of technology solutions professionals at the Cupertino-based firm are strongly advocating that HVAC manufacturers integrate with the demand side to streamline the supply chain. This process is "End to End Pull" replenishment, also known as E2E. Laksham expanded, "This is clearly a paradigm shift compared to the constant focus on improving the planning or forecasts using better and superior algorithms. The primary goal of the E2E process is to schedule manufacturing production based on customer demand instead of forecasts while raw materials and components usage at the manufacturing facilities should drive replenishment to the upstream supply chain. This is also known as consumption driven replenishment or electronic kanban loops."

Ultriva is experiencing rapid growth in HVAC with the wide adoption of E2E globally. Underlying the E2E process is real-time collaboration with the customers and suppliers. On-premise solutions, like MRP and ERP, do a great job for inside the four walls of business. E2E is best-suited outside the four walls of business which is why HVAC are adopting the consumption driven replenishment solution. New features in version 7.6 address some of the specific HVAC sector demands. Ultriva has deployed this type of solution across many large multi-national customers worldwide.
