CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER BLUE RIDGE
Jim Byrnes is the CEO of Blue Ridge where he brings a proven track record in growing profitable application and consulting businesses.Read More
Welcome! We are Blue Ridge, creators of the
leading supply chain platform for wholesale
distributors, specialty retailers and light
manufacturers. We get businesses out of
panic mode and into profit mode.
We believe that demand forecasting and pricing strategy are NOT individual activities. The unique integration of the two are what shape demand, create value and give companies ultimate control over forecast accuracy, even under erratic supply chain conditions.
With inventory data and pricing strategy working in harmony at all times, our customers can respond to new opportunities with speed and assurance. Right products, right places, right prices, — versus operating on safety stock and clearance markdowns.
We’ve built our culture and success on a passion for the people, blended with a relentless commitment to community and best-in-breed execution. We prove our core values every day in everything we do.
Blue Ridge maintains a raving fan base of customers from $50M to $2B, with a 98% customer loyalty rating and 4.7/5 stars in Gartner Peer Review.
Our 550+ Voice of Customer is actively engaged in the Blue Ridge Community. We created a Blue Ridge Education Network that hosts 160+ learning management courses in use by more than 2,000 customer users.
Customers trust our platform, evident in that 99.5% of recommendations are accepted by users without changes. We’ve had no failed implementations and deliver rapid ROI through 24/7 LifeLine Consulting.
ERPs and big-bang vendors cover a lot of ground, but they lack the breadth of capabilities and resources. We are picky. We don’t try to be all things to all people. It’s why Blue Ridge is the best at what we do.
The art of emotional intelligence motivates us. We value hard work and results, not just effort. We are customer success obsessed, always honing our craft, and delivering on our promise to respect others.
Digital continues to blurry the lines with more volatility, competition and risk. We help firms around the world manage this chaos proactively through global resources.
Actions speak louder than words. Blue Ridge’s LifeLine Team is relentlessly focused on customer success. White glove support and proactive value creation. For as long as we’re together.
We rally as a team to ensure our customer’s success just keeps getting better and better. Through connectivity and best-in-breed experiences, we are growing business velocity, together.
We choose our Partners wisely. They allow our customers to quickly plug into the right technologies and services and pivot with new market pressures – rather than getting stuck in some pre-defined roadmap set by us. This configurable model is disrupting the way businesses think about buying software – with a low-risk, rapid path to value in months, not years.
‘Customer Success’ is not just an abstract saying on a dusty, old plaque in our office. It’s the foundational rock of our success and the driver behind everything we do. Explore the people we work with and what they say about their experiences with Blue Ridge.
Our forward-looking executive leadership team is a driving force in ensuring we meet the needs of all our stakeholders – every day and everywhere.
