FuturMaster Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In June 2018, FuturMaster noted that this first semester is a turning point in FuturMaster's cloud transformation. Most client projects are now in the cloud. On-premise customers have also decided to migrate to FM Cloud Services solutions such as DS Smith Packaging in the United Kingdom, a leading international packaging company, and Shiseido Travel Retail in Singapore, the division of the Japanese cosmetics giant.
The company has appointed Michel Stekelenburg as head of sales in Northern Europe.

From their growing bases in France and the UK, FuturMaster have signed some large customers in the last few years across Northern Europe, including Heineken in the Netherlands and L'Oreal across Benelux and the Nordic regions, that's why FuturMaster beleive they have a huge potential for growth in this region.
FuturMaster Risks and Challenges
The launch of a new product constitutes a high risk in a company after the overall cost of ownership and potential wastage are taken into account.
FuturMaster Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
In October 2017, FuturMaster Brazil concluded one of its main objectives by formalizing a new partnership with G2A - a leader company in sales and implementation of Ortems' production planning solutions in Brazil.
After meeting at the 13th Supply Chain Marathon of INBRASC in May of this year, both companies started to evaluate the possibility of joining their experiences and knowledge in order to develop new business perspectives in many manufacture segments, as Food & Beverage, Pharma & Cosmetics, FMCG, among others. On one side, FuturMaster will strengthen its position on the Brazilian market, on the other, the new partner will count with a new efficient, adaptable and robust Supply Chain management solution in its own portfolio to offer to current and future customers, improving their relationship.
Also, that year, Coach IT - an enterprise solutions integrator specialized in SAP partnered with Futurmaster. Through this partnership, FuturMaster's advanced planning solutions for supply chain will be distributed by Coach IT counting on its expertise and know-how on data integration between APS, ERPs and other software.
