Demand Solutions Honored in SDCE’s 100 Great Supply Chain Projects for 2014

Coveted Award Highlights Innovative Uses of Supply Chain Technology

 (August 26, 2014) – Demand Management Inc., a leading global resource for supply chain management solutions, announced today that it has been recognized in Supply and Demand Chain Executive’s list of 100 Great Supply Chain Projects for 2014.

The list recognizes Demand Solutions’ leadership as a solution and service provider in enhancing the supply chain function and assisting supply chain executives as they seek to move toward supply chain excellence.

The award winners were announced online on May 19, 2014 at, and will also be listed in the June 2014 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

This year’s awardees are supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence. They have produced measurable gains in ROI through cost cutting and increased efficiency—whether in warehouse, transportation, procurement sourcing, or any other category in the end-to-end supply chain.

Judges evaluated submissions based on the ambitiousness and scope of each project; creative application of technologies, solutions, and services used; extent of the business results and impact; and the clarity of each submission.

Demand Solutions’ submission highlighted the story of ITW Proline—a customer that lost an entire warehouse to fire in October 2010. With the help of Demand Solutions software, ITW Proline quickly recovered its business operations and commenced a process to re-establish its distribution network. In fact, the business was able to move to an alternative office location, where it re-commenced transactional activity within 36 hours and distribution into customers within 48 hours.

“Success stories like the one from ITW Proline can be much more common when companies put the right supply chain processes and technology in place,” remarked Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management. “We are honored to be included in the 100 Great Supply Chain Projects for 2014, but even happier to know that we have given a customer the ability to keep their supply chain moving even in the most challenging circumstances. We look forward to helping more companies achieve this level of supply chain excellence.”
