Aurionpro & STMT Trisakti University Take Supply Chain Management Thought Leadership to a New Level by Grassroots Nurturing of Talent Through an Innovative Educational Curriculum

The Ground-Breaking Partnership Will Create a Living Lab on the University's Campus to Accelerate the Development of Talent Focused on Supply Chain Technologies

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwired) -- 12/03/13 -- Aurionpro and STMT Trisakti, an Indonesia-based private institution of higher education focused on Transportation Management and Logistics, have collaborated to provide an innovative educational curriculum to create awareness of supply chain technologies and best practices through hands-on use of Aurionpro's industry-leading SCM platform, SCMProFit. As a forward-looking university, STMT Trisakti has partnered with Aurionpro based on proven thought-leadership across the logistics industry and its offering of the market-leading SCM solution, which includes a cloud-based delivery model and innovative mobile capabilities. The two parties have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding to implement a University Partnership Program making use of Aurionpro's SCMProFit software.

A key component of this partnership will be Aurionpro's direct involvement in the university's campus by helping to create a 'Living Lab' to accelerate the development, demonstration, and commercialization of new technologies and solutions in supply chain and logistics. Together, Aurionpro and STMT Trisakti aim to help nurture top talent for the Indonesian and global logistics markets and are expecting the first batch of students to be certified on SCMProFit in January 2014.
STMT Trisakti offers management programs across Management in Air Transport (MTU), Management in Land Transport (MTD), and Management in Sea Transport (MTL) and along with Aurionpro's participation, has conducted successful SCMProFit training and certification initiatives earlier this year for STMT faculty.

In order to set the program up for success, Aurionpro will host a cloud-based SCMProFit environment that will be accessed by various STMT Trisakti academic departments. Lecturers will then be trained and certified by Aurionpro SCMProFit experts, and STMT staff will prepare teaching modules and handouts that will form the foundation for the training curriculum. Finally, Aurionpro and STMT will work together to place students in internship opportunities at existing SCMProFit customers in order to further their hands-on expertise in the technology. This internship program is key as it will benefit the growing number of SCMProFit customers as well as individuals in the new talent pool who will be looking for career opportunities to practice their newly honed skillsets.

Commenting on the partnership, Andri Warman, S.Sos.,MM, Vice Chairman of STMT Trisakti reflected, "The SCMProFit application program adds value to the STMT Trisakti graduates' competency richness, particularly in supporting the fulfillment of the demands of the market in the transport industry. The SCMProFit application program is designed to be an effective learning medium for students to identify and comprehend the process of transporting goods from shippers to consignees, along with the required documents. The Certification Program for students who have attended the courses of SCMProFit application program has served as valid proof of the close partnership between STMT Trisakti and Aurionpro. We greatly appreciate the efforts of Aurionpro's management in helping to bridge the gap between universities and the transport industry through the SCMProFit application program."

"Our partnership with STMT Trisakti is exciting on a number of levels," added Snehal Pandit, Vice President of Sales, Aurionpro SCM. "Working with another thought leader in the field of supply chain management will help to refine and advance best practices in the industry, and helping to cultivate a highly educated and specialized workforce to support the rapidly growing field of logistics in Indonesia and across the globe will help to make organizations more efficient and competitive in their respective markets."
