PINC Solutions, the leader in cost-effective yard management solutions based on real-time asset visibility technology, has been named by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine among its 2008 top-100 providers of next-wave supply chain services and solutions.
The seventh year since its first publication, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 is a select list of the best supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations that were helping lead the way in transforming companies' supply and demand chains.
This year the magazine focused the criteria for its "100" feature on supply chain innovation. "Our readers turn to Supply & Demand Chain Executive to learn about new solutions and best practices for enabling the supply chain, to understand trends in supply chain technology, and to benchmark their own companies' enablement initiatives with those of other enterprises across industry verticals," explained Andrew K. Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "The corporate executives and line-of-business leaders who rely on the magazine want to know what the different supply chain solution and service providers are doing to help them meet the challenges of the 21st century supply chain."
“We are delighted that, once again, a leading industry publication has recognized PINC as a leading innovator in supply and demand chain solutions,” said Aleks Gollu, CEO of PINC Solutions. “By focusing on solving the fundamental challenges, i.e., the lack of real-time visibility, common to the participants in the supply and demand chain, we have developed a unique asset visibility and management solution enabled by a revolutionary RTLS technology platform. Built on web-based application interfaces, PINC’s products are available as turnkey solutions with hosted systems and optional Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). With commercial deployments across North America since early 2006, these systems return their values through immediate efficiency improvements in customers’ daily operations, addressing the needs of companies regardless of their sizes.”
The 100 recipients of the recognition are featured in the cover story of the June/July 2008 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, as well as online.
