Supply & Demand Chain Executive Award Honors Samarth Sarthi’s Influence
on Supply Chain Industry

PITTSBURGH, PA – SCA Technologies, the leading provider of category sourcing and margin management solutions, today announced that Chief Executive Officer and Founder Samarth Sarthi has been named one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2016 Pros to Know. This honor is extended yearly to a select number of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who have helped the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead.

The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and more than 40 Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.

“It is an honor to have been recognized as one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2016 Pros to Know. It is an acknowledgement of the passion SCA Technologies has for our industry,” Sarthi said. “In speaking with our customers and potential customers, a common theme emerged. Aligning with our clients’ overall goals necessitates a strategy from supply chain that enables collaboration powered by people, process and technology, which we excel at.”

Samarth Sarthi has helped to revolutionize supply chain management technology for the restaurant business, most notably for McDonald’s, one of the world’s largest and most respected supply chains. As the CEO of SCA Technologies, Samarth was the visionary and driving force around the development of SCA Planner, helping customers make data-driven decisions, thereby mitigating risks and volatility associated with fluctuating supply, demand and costs.
