About us: learn about our history
Since 2010, we ensure the best availability and freshness
The idea of founding OPAL first arose in 2010, during our doctoral studies at the University of Mannheim, after being involved in various projects to improve operational processes in the production and supply chain of well-known, international companies.
In 2013, we (Alexander Gossmann and Marc Huber) finally founded the startup OPAL - Operational Analytics. In addition to food retailers and bakeries, our customer base also includes chemical, automotive and engineering companies. With our idea, we not only convince our customers: OPAL has been awarded various prizes, including the SAP HANA Innovation Award 2015, the Mannheimer Business Startup Award 2016 and the Innovation Award Baden-Württemberg 2017.
2019 – Weltherrschaft
2018 – Kontinentalherrschaft
2017 – Landesherrschaft
2016 – Regionalherrschaft
2015 – Gründung
Our team consists of highly motivated data and software specialists. We work closely with the University of Mannheim in the field of Data Science and Operations Research.
