MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) - INSIGHT, Inc., top international provider of planning solutions that power supply chain design for the world's foremost companies, announces that company president Jeff Karrenbauer has been named a Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. This is Jeff's 7th appearance on this prestigious list of men and women who have helped their clients or the supply chain community at large improve performance, overcome today's significant challenges, and evolve their supply chains to meet market expectations in the years ahead. Jeff was chosen for his vision and thought leadership on next-generation supply chains solutions, such as the industry's first supply chain planning tool from INSIGHT to incorporate the cost and demand impact of marketing initiatives, thereby generating a profit-maximized corporate strategy.

"This recognition is a tribute to the breadth and depth of expertise that exists throughout INSIGHT and underscores how our first-to-market solutions set the stage for bringing the most profitability to clients through supply chain optimization," said Jeff Karrenbauer, president of INSIGHT, Inc. "INSIGHT is committed to delivering industry leading solutions that help our customers solve complex global supply chain challenges and create competitive advantage."

"Our annual list of Provider Pros to Know highlights the many thought-leaders who are helping to shape the supply chain industry and advance supply chain as a respected discipline in the enterprise," said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and knowledge base necessary for supply chain transformation, and in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them a place on this year's Provider Pros listing."

Dr. Karrenbauer has been involved in the supply chain and logistics industry for many years and is responsible for introducing new technologies and solutions that maximize profits throughout the supply chain. Most recently INSIGHT introduced INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER, which allows simulation of complete supply chain operations, including procurement, manufacturing, and finished goods distribution at a daily level of detail. It has complete, seamless integration into the SAILS system (INSIGHT's supply chain network design tool), including database, user interface and output reports and graphics. It gives the ability to simulate either current supply chain ("baseline") or the result of any SAILS optimization exercise with automatic communication of either solution to the simulation.

The Supply & Demand Chain Executive "Provider Pros to Know" awards recognize exceptional supply chain executives at manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who lead initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains or those of their customers for significant challenges ahead. The full listing of winners appears online and in the March issue.
