Arlington Heights, IL. (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
DemandCaster® by Cadent Resources Inc, a provider of demand and supply planning software as a service, has joined Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine's 2011 Supply Chain Executive ranking for the third consecutive year. The leading industry magazine focused this year's criteria for its "100" ranking on supply chain transformation projects that have had a significant impact on customers.
Candent Resources was nominated for a customer project that helped a mid-sized Illinois-based manufacturer manage volatile, rising materials costs. Using DemandCaster's forecasting capabilities, the customer was able to translate forecast data into a revised resource plan—hedging against rising raw materials costs and gaining a competitive price advantage.
"We're very proud to be part of the Supply Chain Executive 100 ranking this year," said Ara Surenian, president of Cadent Resources, Inc and chief system architect of DemandCaster. "By smartly tapping companies' own data and operations information, DemandCaster SaaS technology is helping companies of all sizes manage uncertainty and thrive in a tough business environment."
"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."
Final recipients are featured in the cover story of the June 2011 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, as well as online at http://www.SDCExec.com/SDCE100.
