This year’s list, “100 Great Supply Chain Projects,” highlights technology implementations that have had a transformative impact on supply chain companies

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – June 5, 2012 – Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, today announced that it has been included in the 2012 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine. This year marks the second time the company has received the distinction.

This year’s 11th annual Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, themed “100 Great Supply Chain Projects,” highlights technology implementations that have had a transformative impact on supply chain companies.

“Our goal with this year’s ’100′ is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that are delivering bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The projects featured in the ’100′ article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.”

Through an online submission process, Supply & Demand Chain Executive collected information on supply chain transformation projects, including information on the objectives, scope, timeline and results of the project. The submissions were evaluated by the magazine’s editorial staff primarily based on: ambitiousness/scope of the project; creative application of technologies/solutions/services used; extent of the business results/impact; and clarity of submission.

Accellos’ submission included its case study of Reno-Sparks, Nevada-based customer ITS Logistics, Inc., a third party logistics provider for the sporting goods, retail, healthcare and hardware & tools industries. Accellos helped to reengineer the geography and processes at the company’s two 200,000-square-foot warehouses and implemented the AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL suite, including the warehouse management platform itself as well as alerts and reporting tools, three-dimensional warehouse and bin mapping, customer self-service web portal, and more. The implementation allowed ITS Logistics to double its physical space and client count, achieve significant shipping and inventory accuracy improvements, eliminate clerical work and develop and solidify a new and successful business sector.

“It is an honor to be included in this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100,” said Michael Cornell, Chairman and CEO of Accellos. “Accellos is especially excited about this award because it recognizes how our software has helped ITS Logistics grow their business and improve their customer service.”
