Businesses are constantly looking for ways to improve their efficiency and to cut costs. However, situations arise that disrupt the best laid plans. For example, after a major storm on the east coast of the United States disrupts travel, an airline uses a sophisticated scheduling solution to reposition its crews so that the airline can recover and start flying more quickly than its competitors. A power company uses an advanced solution for dispatching power plants to generate electricity, achieving a return on investment in less than 10 days. A financial institution uses an ingenious way to match buy-and-sell orders, reducing clearing time from one day to under two minutes. Think about what similar efficiency improvements can mean for users business.
