Elemica Named to SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects for 2019

Elemica Helps with Successful Merger of Global Chemical Businesses, Creating Supply Chain Excellence

Atlanta, GA – June 27, 2019  – Elemica, the leading Digital Supply Network for process manufacturing industries, announces that Supply & Demand Chain Executive, has selected Elemica as a recipient of the SDCE 100 Award for the 7th consecutive year.

Elemica’s Digital Supply Network supported the successful merger of two large global chemical companies by providing frictionless business processes, flexibility and system portability.  Through Elemica’s Digital Supply Network, the merged business was able to quickly access new and existing trading partners because Elemica already connects to chemical and logistics partners specific to the industry. Because of this connectivity, the merged business is able to expand value-added products and solutions to more customers worldwide.

Through the Elemica Network, the merged company leverages the network effect of connected partners. Elemica acts as an abstraction layer allowing for dynamic routing to logically and physically separate systems, by housing the cross-reference tables externally. The merged company easily manages different sets of master data. Through standardized programming modules, they transform messages creating additional system portability, allowing for adapting to different ERP and partner requirements.

“Elemica is pleased to be selected for the seventh consecutive year for the prestigious Supply & Demand Chain Executive SDCE100 Awards that recognize innovative solutions that produced exceptional business results,” said David Cahn, Director Global Marketing at Elemica. “Mergers and acquisitions are rampant in the chemical industry, and Elemica has been instrumental in dozens of them. We help global businesses to merge and move forward on their digital transformation by introducing frictionless business processes that save time, reduce labor costs, and free up working capital.”

“Every year, our list of submissions for the SDCE 100 continues to grow as more companies rely on the expertise of supply management for innovative decision-making. Our winners raise the bar for what is achievable in the supply chain,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “With a variety of company sizes and industry sectors represented, our Top 100 are leading examples of how to approach and solve supply chain challenges. Congratulations to our 2019 winners and the projects that delivered greater operational efficiencies and bottom-line results across the supply chain.”

The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. Elemica was instrumental in the success of a global supply chain merger between two chemical giants. These projects can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.

The merged company remains focused on capitalizing on the synergies, and the significant growth opportunities in front of them. They look forward to positioning and launching three growth companies that will deliver long-term rewards for their shareholders while using the Elemica Digital Supply Network.
