AUSTIN, Texas, June, 2017 — Upland Software, Inc.

The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects that demonstrate ideal examples of supply chain solution and service providers that help customers and clients achieve excellence.
“Our goal with 2017’s Top 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium, and large enterprises across the supply chain,” said Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.”
The award-winning project consisted of a three-phased strategic initiative to establish Lean Supply, Lean Distribution, and Lean Factory across Trane’s five manufacturing plants. The initiative produced a 98% RFID scan success rate, eliminated material stock-outs, and produced a 25% reduction in inventory.
