MILPITAS, CA– April 13, 2022 – Resilinc Corporation, the world’s leading supply chain monitoring, mapping, and resiliency solution is pleased to announce Chief Product Officer and co-founder, Sumit Vakil, has been named a 2022 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage.
Since co-founding Resilinc in 2010, Sumit has been instrumental in leading the company’s product and technology vision, direction, and delivery. This includes bringing to market supply chain risk management solutions including: EventWatchAI, an AI-powered event monitoring platform that uses natural language processing technology to alert companies about disruptive events that could impact their supply chains; RiskShield, a patented risk scoring technology that leverages algorithms to asses supplier risk and revenue impact; WeatherWatchAI, a weather monitoring system that tracks local, inclement weather along transportation routes; and CommodityWatchAI, an advanced algorithm that uses machine learning to predict commodity supply constraints and price fluctuations.
“This recognition is a testament to the achievements of the Resilinc team and the great work everyone the company is doing to bring technology-driven supply chain risk management solutions to market,” said Sumit. “The past two years have presented historical supply chain challenges and we are not out of the water yet; we need to be prepared for more big disruptions to come. Companies must continue to prioritize making their supply chains resilient and supply chain pros need to have a seat at the table when it comes to incorporating supply chain risk management as part of their strategic initiatives.”
Resilinc helps transform the way that global organizations approach supply chain visibility and risk; driving them to shift from reactively addressing catastrophic supply chain events to putting preventative solutions in place through monitoring, mapping, and planning. These solutions – driven by Artificial Intelligence and machine learning – have enabled today’s largest companies to substantially offset supply chain disruption and enable resiliency.
“Investing in supply chain visibility and risk mitigation has become the rule, with Gartner reporting 87% of companies planning investments in supply chain resilience. As organizations continue to seek out comprehensive end-to-end supply chain risk management and resiliency solutions, Resilinc is poised for tremendous growth,” said Ravi Mohan, Managing Director at Shasta Ventures, a Resilinc investor. “The cutting-edge AI and technology-powered solutions that Sumit is bringing to market are enabling this highly sought-after resiliency. A big congratulations to Sumit on being named a Pro to Know. Well deserved.”
