A brief intro by An De Wispelaere and Steven De Schrijver
Easy-to-use solutions for complex problems
Conundra are intricate and difficult problems with an unexpected solution. One of the most famous Conundra is the Monty Hall problem, where a counterintuitive approach renders the best result.
An elite team with one focus: cracking distribution puzzles
Steven De Schrijver and An De Wispelaere have shared a profound passion for optimization for many years, and together they founded Conundra. They have achieved a continuous growth based on a relentless drive for results and a resourceful dedication, today employing an elite team of supply chain experts, optimization consultants, researchers and PhD engineers on projects across Europe.
Technology, talent and passion are the Conundra cornerstones for optimization. Cutting edge technology is applied to find tailor-made and unique solutions for big, complex and non-standard supply chain planning problems. Academic and experienced talent is actively sought, trained internally and externally and continuously challenged to further develop. Passion is what unites the team daily to deliver high quality solutions to a wide variety of customers.

A SHARED PASSION FOR OPTIMIZATION
OptiFlow – Our world record-breaking solution
We invested in OptiFlow, a complete and full service end user solution for route optimization.
We have been creating successful solutions for more than 10 years with IBM ILOG optimization software, a strong mathematical programming engine. During this time we have been working very closely with the IBM ILOG developers and creative minds on a global level. There is a very strong bond with the IBM ILOG ODME & CPLEX experts in France, where ILOG was founded.
It’s a perfect marriage: IBM has the strongest mathematical programming engines, and Conundra has the experienced and bright experts to deliver results in distribution optimization. Together, Conundra and IBM form a strong team: 1+1=3.
