The supplier community management company announced Wednesday that it was honored in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s (SDCE) list of 100 great supply chain projects for 2016. CBX was nominated for a Lamps Plus project, which used the firm’s software to improve its supply chain.
Lamps Plus, the largest lighting retailer in the U.S., is known for its product development, sourcing and vendor management initiatives. With the help of CBX, the retailer’s project established major productivity gains by eliminating redundant data entry, delayed communication and missed opportunities across various internal functions.
“Lamps Plus came to CBX with a vision to compress the supply chain, ensure a higher level of quality assurance and increase margin. Together we devised a multi-phased approach to implement a platform that provides the tools, collaboration and transparency to realize this vision,” said CBX Software CEO Michael Hung.
The SDCE 100 list recognizes companies’ supply chain projects each year. The projects set industry-wide standards for supply chain executives who want to improve their own company sourcing, and demonstrate how supply chain solutions help companies keep up with consumer demands while committing to sustainable practices.
“Our goal with 2016’s SDCE 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain,” said SDCE editor Ronnie Garrett. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.
