“The biggest challenge in today’s global supply chains is the absence of a single system of engagement, where all parties leverage one version of the truth to collaborate and transact.” TradeCard CEO Sean Feeney
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
TradeCard, Inc., the supply chain collaboration and global trade platform used by more than 13,000 retailers, brands, manufacturers and service providers, announced that CEO Sean Feeney has been named a winner of the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards.
Feeney joined TradeCard in April of 2012 with the goal of transforming how global supply networks communicate and collaborate in the future. Feeney is being recognized for his work in expanding TradeCard’s cloud-based supply chain platform to deliver a true system of engagement for global transactions.
“The biggest challenge in today’s global supply chains is the absence of a single system of engagement, where all parties leverage one version of the truth to collaborate and transact,” said Feeney. “ERP connects operations, but only within your four walls. Without an extra-enterprise system for supply chain management, there’s limited visibility. Our goal is to become that system of engagement, delivering for all global trading partners true end-to-end visibility, operational efficiency and supply chain agility.”
On January 7, 2013 TradeCard announced plans to merge with GT Nexus, creating the world’s largest cloud-based business network for supply chain transactions. Upon completion of the merger, Feeney will lead a global network that manages over $100 billion in direct supply chain trade for 20,000 businesses spanning every major industry—from retail and apparel to high tech, automotive, heavy industry, consumer products, life sciences, chemicals, commodities, finance and logistics.
Now in its 13th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize both ends of the supply chain. This includes honoring the “providers,” which includes individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges. This also includes honoring the “practitioners,” e.g., those supply chain executives who demonstrated leadership by managing risk in the supply chain; provided competitive advantage; and delivered value to the bottom line.
