2004 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 to highlight leading solution and service providers
Mesa, AZ — May 4, 2004 — With the economy picking up speed and enterprises continuing to seek competitive advantage, Supply & Demand Chain Executive is gearing up to release the latest edition of its "Top 100" list of solution and service providers that are helping organizations enable their supply and demand chains for competitive advantage.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive, formerly iSource Business, released its first Top 100 list three years ago, in early 2001, to highlight supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations that were helping lead the way in transforming companies' supply and demand chains.
After a hiatus in 2002 during the worst of the tech industry downturn, the magazine released its next listing in 2003, pinpointing the enterprise-wide solutions and consulting organizations that had survived the downturn, as well as new solution providers that were carving out their own niche in this rapidly changing and demanding environment.
With the 2004 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, due to be released in the magazine's June/July issue, Supply & Demand Chain Executive is turning the spotlight on software and service organizations that have continued to offer innovative solutions for enabling supply chain transformation.
"Clearly much has changed since our original list appeared early in 2001," said Andrew Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "We've seen plenty of solution providers close their doors over the past few years, but we've also seen a significant number of providers continue to build up their customer base, build out their offerings and build solid reputations for effective solutions. This year's Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 will highlight these 'supply and demand chain survivors.'"
The "Top 100" are selected by the magazine's editorial staff and advisors based on information submitted by solution providers. The criteria for the selection process were derived from those factors that the magazine's readers have indicated matter most as they consider possible solutions to enable their supply and demand chains today, including stability, industry knowledge and expertise, return on investment and innovation.
The current deadline for submissions is May 12, and more information and a submission form is available at http://www.sdcexec.com/sdcexec100/.
