Birmingham, AL – June 25, 2018 Command Alkon, the global leader in integrated supply chain technology solutions for the Heavy Building Materials (HBM) industry, announces winning the SDCE 100 Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The 2018 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 award winners outline innovative ideas and solutions to guide industry leaders to maximize efficiency, profitability and operational success. Command Alkon was chosen for its project with Wayne Davis Concrete to better manage daily replenishment plans for this ready-mix concrete producer to reduce out of stocks.

“Command Alkon is extremely pleased to win this prestigious award for helping this client better manage their complex operations and fill operational gaps, opening many opportunities for improvements that directly impacted bottom line results,” said Phil Ramsey, Chief Executive Officer at Command Alkon. “The company’s ability to know what inventory levels are at each plant ensures customer orders can be met and that customers will be satisfied.”

“First and foremost, we want to congratulate the winners of this year’s Top 100 for their successful and innovative projects, which serve as models to companies of all sizes for what is achievable in their supply chains,” says John Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Regardless of company size, these projects are best-in-class examples of the types of efficiencies and bottom-line results that supply chain executives should be striving toward in their own operations. Our 2018 winners provide a roadmap for how to get there.”

The 2018 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 spotlights a few of the industry’s most successful and transformational projects that deliver value to enterprises across a range of supply chain functions. The supply chain projects featured in this awards program offer a forward-looking perspective for the industry on new opportunities designed to drive operational success.

Wayne Davis Concrete uses Command Alkon supplyCONNECT supply chain management solution for managing daily replenishment plans and reducing the costs, risks, and waste involved with both out of stock and overstock situations. The real-time supply and demand information provided by supplyCONNECT virtually eliminated stock outs. Time previously spent manually juggling each and every raw material replenishment need was now focused on ensuring customers’ deliveries. Costs improved by eliminating expensive wait times at plants, lowering their on-hand inventory and giving them the ability to proactively plan their material sourcing.
