Synchrono Director Kirk Studdiford Receives Distinction from Supply and Demand Chain Executive

Synchrono, a leader in modern demand-driven manufacturing software, today announced that Director of Client Services, Kirk Studdiford, has been named a 2018 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

The Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ or client’s supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.

Studdiford was recognized for his ability to immediately establish creditability with manufacturing operations, supply chain, IT leaders and more based on a career spent implementing and successfully proving the merits of Lean and Demand-Driven Manufacturing principles. “It’s extremely satisfying to help customers shift from old paradigms to more modern methods such as Demand-Driven Manufacturing – and measure the results”, noted Studdiford. Through his guidance, Synchrono clients have improved on-time delivery, increased production flow, optimized stock buffer and inventory levels, reduced downtime and more. In many cases, Studdiford and his team have saved clients millions annually.

As the head of the Synchrono Client Services team, Kirk is ultimately responsible for customer satisfaction. As such, he takes great care to match the skills of the Synchrono professional services team to the manufacturer’s needs and has developed a six-phased methodology to streamline and accelerate the Synchrono software implementation process. Due to the value Studdiford and his team provides, clients began asking for consulting and specialized support services beyond the software implementation process. This led to the development of the Synchrono® InSync™ Program which provides clients with post-implementation consulting services for delivering continuous improvement. Once again, Studdiford developed a process for working with clients to determine their desired outcomes, putting strategies into place and measuring ROI.

“I’m grateful to Supply & Demand Chain Executive for this recognition. My greatest reward comes from working closely with our customers – getting to know their manufacturing operations and supply chain – and guiding them through process and technology improvements that have a substantial monetary impact on their business,” Studdiford summarized.
