Atlanta, GA (July 6, 2017) – Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Chainalytics, a global leader in supply chain consulting, analytics and market intelligence, as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2017.
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. These projects can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
“Our goal with 2017’s Top 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. We congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!”
Chainalytics’ team partnered with SiteOne Landscape Supply, headquartered in Roswell, GA, to assist with the design and transformation of its distribution network along with the implementation of JDA’s supply chain planning solutions. The transformation was a critical element required to maintain the customer value associated with SiteOne’s business model and reputation in the face of growth and accelerating complexity.
The collaboration between the two organizations revolved around a two-phase plan Chainalytics developed which allowed SiteOne to quickly realize the benefits of optimized order and demand management for retail sites in parallel with reconfiguring the distribution network via the launch of a number of new optimally located distribution centers. The resulting supply chain integration and infrastructure enables SiteOne’s supply chain team to support the business with market-leading distribution, logistics, and replenishment capabilities for over 100,000 products across 470 locations.
“The JDA implementation proceeded in parallel with the design and build of the new DC network. It was imperative to the success of both initiatives to maintain a great deal of flexibility and adaptability while still moving forward at pace,” remarks Kyle Dempsey, Director of Replenishment with SiteOne.
Both phases of the project were completed on time and on budget, enabling improvements to existing stores as well as the successful launch of the new distribution center.
