InfinityQS International, Inc. , the global authority on Manufacturing Intelligence and enterprise quality, today announced that president and CEO, Michael A. Lyle, has been recognized as a 2013 "Provider Pro to Know" by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. As a three-time winner, Lyle is dedicated to understanding the needs and challenges of manufacturers and providing a solution – InfinityQS’ ProFicient – to ensure that the products delivered to customers are produced to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” include professionals proactively working to improve their business’s functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output; procurement; logistics; risk mitigation strategies; sourcing; financial operations; packaging and distribution; transportation; and much more.

“The number of issues that can present themselves in one’s business truly run the gamut—from a dysfunctional product component found within a manufacturer’s tier-three level of the supply chain to clarifying a business’s procurement strategy for reduced costs,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome such issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements.”

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.

Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO, InfinityQS, said, “Earning a spot on the 2013 Pros to Know list is reflective of InfinityQS’ ability to continuously understand the challenges facing today’s supply chain – including the need for visibility, traceability and analytics. This past year, InfinityQS expanded upon the functionality and mobile capabilities of our enterprise quality hub, ProFicient, to help manufacturers surmount these challenges and ensure a quality product at every step in the product lifecycle.”

ProFicient is a proven enterprise quality hub powered by a centralized SPC analysis engine. With flexible cloud-based or on-premise deployment options, ProFicient enables manufacturers to proactively monitor, analyze and report on Manufacturing Intelligence to improve quality, decrease costs and make more strategic business decisions.

InfinityQS will be demonstrating ProFicient at booth 15 at the 2013 Global Food Safety Summit, to be held March 6-8, at the Hotel Rey Juan Carolos in Barcelona. For more information, visit:
