HICKORY, N.C., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Transportation Insight, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, announced that Jim Taylor, Vice President of Information Technology, has been named a Provider Pro to Know 2014 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.
Taylor was recognized for leading Transportation Insight's visionary plan to bring game-changing data analysis tools to its clients. As the developer of Insight Fusion™, the company's groundbreaking interactive business intelligence portal that helps shippers measure, manage and optimize their supply chains, Taylor understands the value of accurate transportation data in the life of every business.
"Today companies need to make decisions more quickly and more intelligently, yet there is so much information available that they find it hard to even get started," says Taylor, a 25-year veteran of the logistics industry who has been building innovative technology applications throughout his career. "To make sense of all this data and understand what is happening within a company's supply chain, companies need to dive deep into the data. The tools we're designing will help our clients transform their supply chains into adaptive and predictive powerhouses. It is an honor for me, and for Transportation Insight, to be recognized for our innovations."
From a centrally-managed, audited logistics data repository, Transportation Insight clients using Insight Fusion have point-and-click access to the data they need to adjust supply chain strategies to meet changing customer demands. "Insight Fusion enables our clients to drill down into these combined data sources to access a wealth of information," says Taylor. "The way we present this information in Insight Fusion can help our clients make strategic decisions that set them above their competition."
"Our annual list of Provider Pros to Know highlights the many thought-leaders who are helping to shape the Supply Chain industry and advance Supply Chain as a respected discipline in the enterprise," said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and knowledge base necessary for Supply Chain transformation, and in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them a place on this year's Provider Pros listing."
The Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who have helped their Supply Chain clients or the Supply Chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead. The magazine's editorial selection committee culled through hundreds of submissions to find the applicants that best fit the criteria of helping clients to meet key challenges facing their supply chains in the years ahead.
The full listing of the 2014 Pros to Know will be available in the February/March 2014 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and e-book beginning in early March and on the Supply & Demand Chain Executive website.
