MavenWire, Ruan Team Up to Implement OTM Technology Into Iowa State University Curriculum

WAYNE, PA and DES MOINES, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- MavenWire and Ruan Transportation Management Systems, two leaders in the supply chain and logistics industry, are joining forces to offer Iowa State University (ISU) students a real-life look at supply chain and management information systems by adding Oracle Transportation Management (OTM), the leading global transportation management software, to the school's curriculum and providing scholarship opportunities for students.

MavenWire, a Wayne, Pa.-based provider of OTM services, hosting, training support and solutions, and Ruan, a family-owned transportation company headquartered in Des Moines, IA, will partner to enhance ISU's Supply Chain Management and Management Information Systems programs with OTM technology beginning in the fall of 2014. This collaboration marks the first time the OTM product will be embedded into a college curriculum.

MavenWire will install and host OTM, and Ruan will provide data and real-life case study examples for classroom instruction and hands-on experience for students. Ruan executives will also provide assistance with instruction, lending their expertise in OTM and overall logistics management.

"ISU has a top-tier supply chain program, and our goal is to enrich young minds and share knowledge on succeeding in the industry to help young people forge their career paths," said MavenWire President and CEO Sam Levin.

ISU's supply chain program, ranked seventh in North America by academic correspondents in Supply Chain Management Review Magazine, offers comprehensive training at the undergraduate, MBA, and Ph.D. levels.

Ruan's involvement in the program is based on a long-running relationship between the company and ISU. Ruan Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Solutions Marty Wadle is an ISU graduate and serves on the executive advisory council for the university's College of Business Supply Chain Management undergraduate program.

"Ruan is excited to partner with Iowa State University and MavenWire to implement OTM software into the school's curriculum this fall," said Wadle. "Ruan is proud to hire several ISU graduates each year, and we feel that preparing these students with best-of-breed tools like OTM is a tremendous opportunity for both the students and future employers."

MavenWire and Ruan have also initiated a joint scholarship to benefit a student each year who excels in ISU's Supply Chain Management program.
