Customer Engagement at Supply Chain North America 
Communicating Demand Signals Across Extended Supply Chain Ensures
Value & Profits 
EXTON, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 --   Elemica, the leading
provider of supply chain integration and optimization solutions,
announces that Gary Neights will be speaking at Supply Chain North
America on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 in St. Louis. Gary's talk, "The
Demand Driven Value Network for Improved Customer Engagement" will
discuss how demand driven value networks manage cross-functional
processes that integrate and synchronize product, demand, and supply
networks to optimize joint value for businesses.  
"The flow of information and products is becoming more complex and
globally distributed. This presents significant challenges across the
network of customers, suppliers, and logistics providers," said Gary
Neights, Director of Product Management at Elemica. "Our market
research shows that customers expect manufacturers to be innovative
with both the products they bring to market and the supply chain
technology used to communicate demand signals across the extended
supply chain network to ensure that quality products are delivered to
the right place at the right time and with the right accounting." 
Supply chains and distribution networks extend globally in today's
market, making the management of risk and increased visibility more
critical to success. For success, companies need to collectively
sense and properly respond to changes in demand and supply. When
companies operate their supply chains to respond directly to external
market drivers, this enables them to focus more on sensing, shaping
and driving an intelligent response to the environment happening
outside their internal control. 
In his presentation, Gary will discuss how:  

--  A Demand Driven Value Network maximizes the value of extended supply
    chain processes with technologies that enable collaboration across
    multiple networks of corporate stakeholders and supply chain trading
--  This type of supply chain network leverages an outside-in view based
    on insights about customer value to deliver a demand response that
    improves profitability and visibility.
--  The foundation of a demand driven value network is strong core
    functional capabilities, flawless execution, and data visibility.

Gary Neights' presentation will take place on Tuesday, April 9, 2013
from 1:30 PM - 2:20PM at Supply Chain World North America, held at
the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark. He will use the SCOR model to
discuss how to create a Demand Driven Value Network, its core
functional capabilities, and the benefits to all trading partners,
followed by real-life examples of a demand network that supports
innovation and growth.
