SPS (Nasdaq:SPSC), a leading provider of on-demand supply chain management solutions, today announced that Scott Bolduc, Senior Supply Chain Strategist, and Jim Frome, Chief Strategy Officer, have been again named Provider Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The 2012 Provider Pros to Know lists individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the business challenges in the year ahead.
"Our annual list of Provider Pros to Know highlights the many thought-leaders who are helping to shape the supply chain industry and advance supply chain as a respected discipline in the enterprise," said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and knowledge base necessary for supply chain transformation, and in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them a place on this year's Provider Pros listing."
Mr. Bolduc has become a trusted supply chain expert and advisor to more than 40 retailers during his 11 years as a supply chain strategist at SPS. He partners with supply chain practitioners, sharing best practices and helping organizations improve how their products are distributed to retailers. Overall, he has reviewed the EDI requirements of more than 400 retailers, grocers and distributors, and provided recommendations to improve efficiency and supplier adoption.
In November 2011, Mr. Frome's vision of a more connected supply chain community led to the launch of the Retail Universe(SM), an online community for trading partners in the retail supply chain. Modeled after social networking sites, the Retail Universe is designed to facilitate relationships and communications between all members of the retail ecosystem, especially those looking to grow their e-commerce and drop-ship business. The community was immediately accessible by more than 40,000 retailers, suppliers and 3PLs. Member create a free online profile that details their company type, industry, items, technical capabilities and much more. In addition, SPS provides certification for vendors meeting specific e-commerce or drop-ship requirements.
The full listing of this year's Pros to Know will be available in the March 2012 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and on the Supply & Demand Chain Executive website here.
