Supply & Demand Chain Executive names Jim Mandt a 2010 Supply Chain "Pro to Know"
ROCHESTER, Minn., March 1 -- Jim Mandt, vice president of technical services with Metafile Information Systems, Inc. (http://www.metaviewer.com) has been named a recipient of the "2010 Provider Pros to Know" award by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Metafile is an independent provider of paperless document management applications supporting accounts payable (AP), accounts receivable (AR), and human resources departments and has served middle-market and large businesses for more than 30 years.
Through his work with clients in a variety of industries in the AP realm, Mandt has developed a cross-industry philosophy centered on restructuring and adapting AP processes and best practices prior to implementation of new technology to ensure maximum value for an organization's technology investment. It is this philosophy that has helped Mandt become a respected advisor to his clients and well-regarded by his peers.
"Jim understands technology's influence, and is often on-site with our customers as technology is implemented. Jim also ensures technology continues to deliver value by scaling as our customers' organizations grow," said Nick Sprau, vice president of marketing for Metafile. "We are extremely proud that Jim is being recognized for both his depth of knowledge and for his exceptional customer service during and after implementation of AP automation technology."
The Supply & Demand Chain Executive "2010 Provider Pros to Know" includes a list of individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies, or analyst or research firms who have personally helped clients address the challenges of the recession and prepare for the recovery ahead.
"The '2010 Provider Pros to Know' have shown themselves to be thought-leaders in the supply chain industry," said Andrew K. Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Highlighting the learnings that the Provider Pros to Know have taken out of the Great Recession provides our readers with a wealth of best practices that they can apply in their own supply chains, as well as insights into how leading organizations are positioning themselves for competitive advantage in the Great Recovery ahead."
Supply & Demand Chain Executive, which defined criteria for the Provider Pros to Know, issued a call for nominations in November 2009. Beginning in January, the magazine's editorial selection committee culled through more than 400 submissions to find the applicants that best fit the criteria, which included demonstrated willingness to assist clients in addressing the challenges of the recession and working to meet the challenges that supply chains will face in the coming year.
"Businesses must not simply 'throw' technology at their existing processes; they must review those processes and fix them first to ensure seamless and effective technology integration," said Mandt. "It's great to be recognized as a Provider Pro to Know, and I look forward to bringing process improvement, efficiency, transparency, and cost savings to the supply chains of more organizations in more industries' in the future."
In his role as the vice president of technical services at Metafile, Jim Mandt oversees Metafile's help desk, and professional services teams, and is responsible for all aspects of providing technical support to Metafile's customers, as well as project analysis and design for both new-customer installations and expansions within existing customers.
