Profit Point: Best Supply Chain Blogs of 2014

March 11th, 2014 9:30 am Category: Awards, by: Editor

A special thanks to the folks at Supply Chain Opz for including us in the Supply Chain Power 50: Best Supply Chain Blogs of 2014. The list includes our esteemed colleagues at SCM World, Supply & Demand Chain Executive, Supply Chain Management Review and more.

We don’t write about supply chains so that we can get awards or be included on lists. We write about the topic because we love helping supply chain innovators discover the next evolution of their business, because we love making things better and because we hate the status quo, especially if it’s wasteful.

That being said, it sure is nice to get recognized by our peers. And for that, we say thanks!

If you would like to stay updated on our research and writings, you can follow us here:

Participating in the Communities Where We Work and Live

December 27th, 2013 1:49 pm Category: Awards, by: Editor

A core part of the Profit Point mission is to participate in the communities where we work and live. We do that by providing pro bono services to local companies, by participating in community work days, and by contributing financially to organizations focused on job creation and the necessary accompanying community support.

While our financial support includes the more common annual grants to cover operating funds, we believe equally in the importance of making loans into the communities where we work and live. Lending provides capital into communities where traditional banking services do not always participate. There are many excellent non-profit organizations providing capital and the accompanying services to support small business in local communities.

Profit Point currently has three loans of $25,000 each to the follow organizations in communities where we work and live:

We encourage you to see the work that these organizations are doing, and to support similar organizations in the communities where you work and live.

Happy holidays from the team at Profit Point!

Green Supply Chain AwardGreen Network software is recognized for its role in helping to build environmentally sustainable businesses.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine honored Profit Point, a leading supply chain optimization company , with a 2008 Green Supply Chain Award. The company and its Green Network supply chain design software was recognized as a Green Supply Chain Enabler. Profit Point is showcased with other award winners in the latest issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

Profit Point has been delivering supply chain optimization services and software to Fortune 500 companies for more than a decade. Earlier this year, the company introduced Green Network when it recognized that its clients needed a robust tool to account for and optimize away manufacturing waste, such as industrial pollutants and green house gas emissions.

“Profit Network software has been helping large companies around the world build more robust and profitable supply chains for more than 10 years,” said Jim Piermarini, Profit Point’s CTO. “From our clients’ perspective it makes sense to incorporate environmental byproducts in to the network design to evaluate opportunities and costs and conduct scenario testing in advance of these critical infrastructure decisions.”

The company’s software products are now used to help companies manage the tradeoffs associated with environmental resource constraints, such as limited water supplies in developing countries. Profit Point’s transportation and distribution clients achieve more efficient territory planning and vehicle routes, which mitigates unnecessary fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.

The Green Supply Chain Awards recognize small, midsize and large organizations that are taking steps to realize eco-efficiency goals. Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of each program’s goals and strategy, the extent of the steps being taken, the impact of the results to date and projected results, and the form and presentation of the information submitted.

“We are honored to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for our focus on sustainability and we’re delighted to play a role in helping business managers define and reach environmental sustainability objectives across their supply chain,” said Alan Kosansky, President of Profit Point. “We look forward to any opportunity to help create a more sustainable business environment.”
