Synchrono®, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, today announced that Vice President of Product Strategy, John Maher, has been named a 2017 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

The Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ or client’s supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.

Maher was recognized for a career focused on working with manufacturers to develop technologies that create greater alignment between operations and the extended supply chain. “A synchronized supply chain maximizes flow throughout the extended supply chain in order to serve customers in ways they value,” notes Maher. "This is achieved by getting as close to demand as possible.” Synchrono systems operate in real-time and adaptively adjust to changes in demand as they occur. As a result, manufacturers have experienced increased capacity, improved production flow and greater rates of on time delivery.

Maher drove the vision and led the execution of an award-winning manufacturing technology platform by coupling a passion for technology with an in-depth knowledge of multiple manufacturing environments and an expert understanding of Lean Manufacturing, Constraints Management and Six Sigma principles. The resulting Synchrono Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform connects the entire manufacturing operation and extended supply chain in real-time, enabling end-to-end visibility and generating intelligence for instant decision-making and a foundation for communication, collaboration and continuous improvement. This forward-thinking technology led Gartner research to designate Synchrono as a Cool Vendor.

“Thanks to Supply & Demand Chain Executive for this recognition. My greatest reward is in working with manufacturers and helping them to apply demand-driven methods to achieve true performance improvement,” Maher summarized.
