“(Blue Ridge) gave us precision, visibility and granularity of detail.”


It’s hard to believe that the average consumer of media is exposed to between 4,000 and 10,000 ads each day, but it’s true.

To help businesses cut through the noise, SupplyChainBrain Editor Robert J. Bowman just published their annual list of “100 Great Supply Chain Partners”.

Who appeared on this list of best supply chain management providers?

The list is made up of solution providers who have received multiple nominations from actual customers and/or whose customers were interviewed by SupplyChainBrain for a published, in-depth study.

  • Reliability
  • Excellence
  • Value
  • Expertise
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Continuous improvement
  • Support
  • Positive attitude
  • Global reach

Big Thanks to Our Nominator

MacPherson’s, the largest art supplies distributor in North America, serving 2,600 retail customers through a variety of channels, gave this feedback on Blue Ridge supply chain management solutions:

“Blue Ridge provided us with precision and visibility, thanks to the broadening of demand and supply planning projections, and the granularity of detail available in demand and supply plans. The cloud-based environment enables us to move away from the spreadsheet method of buying, which often resulted in inaccurate forecasting, imprecise recommendations and slow reaction to shifting trends, disruptions and conditions.”

“Now, our inventory analysts are using machine learning intelligence to meet the dynamics of today’s market with precision and agility. Blue Ridge is always there for us. Whether it’s LifeLine, the hands-on training, or just during our implementation, we have their full support. They were instrumental in us going live on target with training, testing and implementation, on time and on track.”
