MIDDLETON, Wis. — June 28, 2019 — Esker, a worldwide leader in AI-driven process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced it has been named a recipient for the 2018-19 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 Top Supply Chain Transformations (SDCE 100) award. Esker was selected for the impact its solution brought to TAMKO Building Products LLC following implementation.
The SDCE 100 recognizes individual and corporate leaders in the global supply chain. This list highlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions. The projects featured in this awards program serve as an industry roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive operational success.
“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,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our winners raise the bar for what is achievable in the supply chain.”
TAMKO chose Esker’s cloud-based, AI-powered Order Management solution for its ability to help reduce costs, improve reporting capabilities and consolidate orders into a single system. Ultimately, the company wanted to ensure that orders were being entered and fulfilled efficiently and accurately.
“The implementation of Esker’s Order Management system has not only had dramatic productivity benefits in our process, but we have achieved those results without sacrificing the service level to the customer,” said Robert Keeling, Assistant Vice President Supply Chain Operations at TAMKO. “It’s been a key part of our back-office automation efforts and has helped provide more time for our employees to engage in higher value activities.”
Following Esker’s Order Management solution implementation, TAMKO achieved an overall reduction in time and cost of manual entries, as well as other benefits such as:
- Enhanced reporting for continuous process improvement
- 84-percent reduction in average order processing time
- 60-percent reduction in time spent on new hire onboarding
