Fortna Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 List

Work with Tech Data named as “100 Great Supply Chain Project”
May 19, 2014 - PRLog -- READING, PA – Fortna, the distribution experts, is proud to be named to the 2014 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100.  The SDCE 100 list highlights supply chain solution and service providers whose projects helped their clients by producing measurable gains and return on investment through cost-cutting and increased efficiency.

The winning project includes rolling out a single, integrated software solution across Tech Data Corporation’s entire North American distribution network.  Fortna’s Warehouse Control System – FortnaWCS– was at the core of the solution.  FortnaWCS™ is a software application that optimizes the flow of activity in a distribution center, maximizing the efficiency of the material handling systems and the warehouse associates.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our joint project with Tech Data,” said Andrew Breckenridge, executive vice president at Fortna.  “It is a testimony to the business results achieved by the project and the positive impact it has had on Tech Data’s customers.”
