Demand-Driven Manufacturing Software Provider Receives Rare Distinction

Gartner Cool Vendor - Synchrono

Synchrono Named Cool Vendor in Manufacturing Operations

“It’s great to be recognized for our modern demand-driven approach and the technology that enables it; especially when supported with actual customer results."

Synchrono®, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, today announced that it had, once again, been recognized as a Cool Vendor in Manufacturing Operations by the respected industry research and analyst group, Gartner.

Synchrono was first recognized as a Cool Vendor in 2011, based on the company’s initial software offering, SyncManufacturing (then called Adaptive Manufacturing). The product was highlighted for providing a closed-loop system, which synchronizes customer service (demand), planning and scheduling with shop floor execution. A patented scheduling algorithm sets the optimal pace for production resulting in heightened on-time delivery rates and often, increased capacity. Manufacturers using the software also gain granular levels of visibility, can respond instantly to changes in demand, and greatly reduce the complexity of the planning process.

According to Gartner sources, rarely do vendors receive the Cool Vendor distinction more than once. Yet in Cool Vendors in Manufacturing Operations, 2017 by Simon F. Jacobson, Vice President of the Supply Chain Research Organization at Gartner, Synchrono was once again highlighted, catching readers up on the manufacturing operations and supply chain solutions the company has introduced since 2011.

Today, SyncManufacturing is one of five systems that comprise the Synchrono Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform. Jacobson highlights the impact of the Platform based on the results achieved by a Synchrono aerospace client who, among other items:

  •     Increased their rate from producing 1 to 12 airplanes worth of parts per month;
  •     Consolidated 11 applications onto the Synchrono Platform;
  •     Eliminated 16 systems/steps in their replenishment process.

“It’s great to be recognized for our modern demand-driven approach and the technology that enables it”, notes Pam Bednar, Vice President of Marketing for Synchrono, “especially when supported with actual customer results.” The company has a collection of customer case studies quantifying results on their website at

Synchrono will be demonstrating SyncManufacturing and other software applications within their Demand-Driven Manufacturing Platform at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference in Phoenix, Arizona May 23-25.
