Atlanta, GA (July 10, 2018) – Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Chainalytics as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2018.
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. The list is a showcase of how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
“First and foremost, we want to congratulate the winners of this year’s Top 100 for their successful and innovative projects, which serve as models to companies of all sizes what is achievable in their supply chains,” says John Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Regardless of company size, these projects are best-in-class examples of the types of efficiencies and bottom-line results that supply chain executives should be striving in their own operations. Our 2018 winners provide a roadmap for how to get there.”
Chainalytics, a recognized global leader in supply chain consulting, analytics and market intelligence, partnered with a leading health and beauty product manufacturer to alleviate dropping customer order fulfillment levels, rising backorders, and ongoing warehouse congestion issues. Working closely with the manufacturer’s leadership, the Chainalytics team quickly identified the root causes, developed a recovery plan and communication plan, and instantiated dashboards to measure KPIs and leading indicators of the recovery.
Using industry-leading technology through a Planning-as-a-Service model, Chainalytics provided statistical forecasts, inventory targets, production plans, material requirements and operational recommendations that allowed the manufacturer to restore service levels and prevent the loss of key national accounts.
