Supply chain IT is undergoing a cloud transformation that is driving tremendous investment, and IT buyers need help navigating uncharted waters.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) February 29, 2016
NPI, a leading spend management advisory firm, has announced that CEO Jon Winsett has been named a 2016 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes the 2016 Provider Pros to Know —individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive is the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation. The organization received more than 350 entries for the 2016 Pros to Know Awards.
Winsett provides sourcing optimization services to retailers, manufacturers and distributors to reduce supply chain overspending on IT and shipping. Under Jon’s leadership, NPI has saved clients more than $750 million on technology and transportation investments. The impact of these savings extends far beyond the financial calculation. By freeing up substantial portions of the technology and shipping budget, companies are able to repurpose these funds to improve customer and supplier service, innovate and position themselves more competitively in the marketplace.
“It’s an honor to be named a Pro to Know, especially at a time when supply chain IT is undergoing a cloud transformation that is driving tremendous investment, and IT buyers need help navigating uncharted waters,” said Winsett. “For the shipping category, the carrier pricing landscape can only be described as brutal. Most shippers are dealing with historically high rates, discount erosion and declining service levels – all while carriers make frequent pricing and service changes that drive spend even higher. It’s time for shippers to take charge and I’m backed by an incredible team at NPI that’s helping them achieve that goal.”
