From Slides to Software!
The MPO founding story is about best things coming together to serve the world.
Being friends since high school, Martin Verwijmeren & Paul van Dongen studied Engineering Sciences with majors in Supply Chain Management & IT. In his PhD study, Martin developed a new theory for smart flexible supply chain software using distributed object technology.
Working for multi-billion corporations (GE, Cap, KPN, TNT) in Supply Chain and IT, they noticed such smart flexible supply chain software was missing The founders concluded that just linking existing ERP, WMS and TMS does not bring the required capabilities of both integration and flexibility.
Being a brilliant programmer since high school, Paul began prototyping the new supply chain software using platform independent Java technology. With the vision of an increasing need for and feasibility of smart and flexible supply chain software, Martin & Paul founded MP Objects (MPO).
Since the incorporation of MPO, the software has evolved into the unique, rich and strong MPO SaaS for Customer Chain Control. ‘Blessed with a team of talented international professionals, we serve our worldwide customers by putting complex theory into simple practice.’
