DIAMOND BAR, Calif. - Oct. 14, 2020 - PRLog -- JUSDA, a global supply chain integrator, claimed the top $12,000 prize in the virtual GS1 US Hackathon titled Flexible and Resilient: Future-Proofing the Supply Chain, held August 31 -September 20, with judging taking place from September 21-29.  The winning solution provides real-time visualizations and actionable insights into supply and demand signals across supply chains, allowing for rapid response during a crisis. The panel of judges selected the solution for its real-world applicability and its seamless integration of GS1 Standards. JUSDA has been designing innovative solutions for the future of supply chain services for more than 20 years and, as underscored by this award, in helping create flexible and resilient supply chains.

The GS1 US Hackathon, hosted and organized by GS1 US, asked the developer community to challenge the traditional way supply chains function.   Developers were asked to leverage technologies including blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to help "future-proof" the supply chain, making them more agile and adaptable during times of disruption. Each entrant addressed one or more of four areas: food, consumer packaged goods (CPG), healthcare or they created their own unique solution that addresses the theme of the event. The judges evaluated each solution for market impact, seamless implementation, advanced technology utilization and incorporation of GS1 Standards.

"We are extremely excited to be recognized by GS1 and the panel of judges for a problem we continue to see within supply chains.  To solve the problems of the companies of tomorrow, we need to innovate and create partnerships throughout the supply chain," said Jack Chang, Managing Director, JUSDA Supply Chain Management. "This top prize further recognizes that JUSDA Supply Chain Management is dedicated to innovation and designing the future of supply chain services to deliver actionable insights that lead to winning outcomes to clients."

John Berry, the JUSDA IT Director who spearheaded the project adds, "The JUSDA Technology team enjoyed participating in this hackathon and learned a lot from the resources the GS1 provided. We want to thank GS1 for putting on this hackathon and for awarding us first prize in the competition. The GS1 standards are a critical piece of a more resilient supply chain and we encourage everyone working in supply chain to learn more about how you can use the GS1 standards to improve your business."
