SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/13 -- Resilinc Corp., the leading provider of supply chain resiliency solutions, today announced that it has won the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive "100" Great Supply Chain Projects award and that it was also highlighted in a recently released IDC Manufacturing Insights report on supply chain resiliency. The award will be presented in the June issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) magazine. Extending its industry leadership in supply chain risk and compliance, Resilinc also announced that its SupplyIntel offering now supports conflict minerals compliance pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502.
The 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive "100" award honorees are supply chain solution and services providers that are helping their customers and clients to achieve supply chain excellence by driving improvements and bottom-line value across their supply chains. The annual SDCE 100 awards spotlight innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions in warehouse, transportation, procurement sourcing and other business-critical areas in the end-to-end supply chain. The supply chain projects receiving SDCE 100 awards can serve as a roadmap for new opportunities to drive operational improvements because they have produced measurable gains in ROI through cost-cutting and increased efficiency. The submissions were evaluated by the magazine's editorial staff primarily based on: ambitiousness/scope of the project (30 percent); creative application of technologies/solutions/services used (20 percent); extent of the business results/impact (40 percent); and clarity of submission (10 percent).
The IDC Manufacturing Insights report titled "Business Strategy: Arguing the Case for Supply Chain Resiliency in 2013" (doc #MI240502, April 2013) discusses the growing importance of supply chain resiliency and argues the case for focus and investment. According to Simon Ellis, practice director, IDC Manufacturing Insights, "Manufacturing supply chains must prioritize flexibility and visibility if they are to adapt to a global marketplace that is evolving to be simultaneously volatile, personalized, and demanding of quality in product and service." The report discusses the vendor landscape according to four categories including: risk assessment; supplier relationship management; visibility, monitoring and reporting; and responsiveness. According to the report, Resilinc is unique in addressing all of four categories. Ellis states, "Indeed, if a manufacturing company were to ask for a vendor that covers the full spectrum, the only one that IDC Manufacturing Insights has had experience with is a specialty vendor called Resilinc. A company formed by ex-Cisco risk management practitioners, Resilinc is small but covers all of the four areas mentioned above."
"Resilinc is proud to be recognized as an industry leader by Supply & Demand Chain Executive and IDC Manufacturing Insights. And now with our expansion into conflict minerals compliance, Resilinc is quickly becoming the global gold standard for supply chain risk, visibility, resiliency, and compliance solutions. SupplyIntel 3.0 now empowers integrated conflict minerals compliance pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502, in addition to providing next-generation multi-tier supply chain mapping and visibility, risk analytics, global event monitoring and total resiliency management capabilities," said Bindiya Vakil, CEO of Resilinc.
