In 2018, after four years in business, River Rock Advisors was nominated for and received its first SupplyChainBrain 100 Great Supply Chain Partners recognition. We were grateful for the nomination, which came from one of our satisfied clients who recognized us for our contributions to their organization. 

This year, we are again pleased to share that we have been recognized for the second time in a row on this prestigious list of some of the top supply chain organizations.

As a supply chain management information resource, SupplyChainBrain has for two decades been asking organizations around the country to nominate their supply chain partners based on outstanding service and solutions. After a six-month poll, SupplyChainBrain notified our firm that we had again been recognized for this honor.

“Our six-month online poll of supply chain professionals requires a qualified response, asking them to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service, and overall supply chain performance,” said SupplyChainBrain Publisher Brad Berger. 

“This year’s field of nominees was competitive and inspiring — coming from all sectors of supply chain management. River Rock Advisors will appear in the 2019 August issue of SupplyChainBrain magazine and on as an honored member of this year’s 100 Great Supply Chain Partners.”

We do not take this recognition lightly, as manufacturing and distribution companies worldwide face even greater challenges today than in previous years that extend well beyond their supply chain. The industry is in a rapid state of growth and change, and we are grateful to our clients for taking the time to show their support. More importantly, we are grateful for their trust in partnering with our firm to identify, resolve, and report on their supply chain challenges.

It’s All About Adding Value

As a boutique value chain advisory firm, our ultimate focus is helping our clients take their supply chain optimization further to create one thing: business value. Often, organizations with a supply chain strategy are trying to get from A to Z but are treating the many steps between those two points simply as items to be checked off. Companies can also quickly lose sight of the importance of those additional steps in relation to the starting point and their goals.

When they reach steps C, J, Q, and V, it’s important to consider whether they’re in alignment with the overall operational and supply chain strategies. Also, are they in alignment with the intended end state? Or will they completely derail the organization’s strategy? While change is expected, it must be carefully managed with respect to the entire strategy in order for the strategy to be successful and for business value to be realized.

Helping our clients approach their supply chain challenges and operational strategies in this manner is our specialty. If your organization is looking to take its operations to the next level, our firm is here to assist.
