Arlanxeo use case

Expanding success

Arlanxeo, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and LANXESS, is a world-leading chemical company that develops, manufactures and markets synthetic rubber and high-performance elastomers for use in various industries.  Arlanxeo initially deployed TrendMiner software in 2016 in Europe. With a best practice onboarding approach by TrendMiner’s Customer Success team, Arlanxeo achieved an ROI within the first months of use. Based on the success of its pilot program, Arlanxeo will initiate deployment of TrendMiner software globally in its two business units.

“You cannot wait until you have a final perfect solution before you start using big data tools. It’s better to do it in parallel: start using analytics while you continue to gather data.”

“If you lose time, this will cost you production volume and additional time to handle the problem. Whenever we can solve a problem in less time, this is a huge benefit. TrendMiner is providing us this benefit.”
