FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nationwide Supply Chain Management Training Provider Enters into Strategic Business Relationship with NTE
Relationship to Provide Mutual Benefit to Customers
CHICAGO – Oct.3, 2014 – NTE LLC, the leader in multi-tenant platform Software as a Service (SaaS), providing: Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Supply Chain Management (SCM) and complete Trading Party Systems Integration(SI) technology solutions, today announced it has entered into a strategic business relationship with Jack Quinn Solutions, a provider of supply chain management certification training.
The reason for the relationship stems from an effort on behalf of both companies to provide value-added services to their respective clients. NTE has customers in need of supply chain training and advancement; while Jack Quinn Solutions has clients in need of access to technology tools that help manage supply chains. NTE and Jack Quinn Solutions identified an opportunity to work together would mutually benefit one another in achieving their goals of providing more to customers.
Jack Quinn Solutions was founded in 2010 by its chief executive officer, military veteran Dr. Randall Mauldin (USMC (ret), CPSM, PMP). Dr. Mauldin has been creating supply chains, managing procurement, and facilitating logistics to create extraordinary value through cost savings and continuous improvement for over 20 years. It is because of this first-hand experience that Jack Quinn Solutions understands the value of certification of procurement professionals.
“Would you use an accountant that doesn’t hold a CPA license?” said Dr. Randall Mauldin, CEO, Jack Quinn Solutions. “The same applies to procurement professionals, who can be tasked with managing millions of a company’s spend. Our focus is on training – specifically, teaching people to pass the Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM) certification, which holds a lot of credibility in their profession.”
Regarding their strategic relationship with NTE, Jack Quinn Solutions wanted to expand their business to offer more to their clients, once the training and certification was complete.
Throughout training sessions, Mauldin discovered some of his training participants had problems with their supply chain management systems. He also found participants with systems they didn’t use at all, or that simply didn’t manage their supply chains effectively.
“There is a lot of software out there, and we don’t teach people how to use it per se” said Mauldin. “What we do teach them is what types of data to collect in these systems, and how to analyze the data to identify problems and opportunities in order to effectively manage supply chains for efficiency and cost savings. Then people can select the technology and tools to help them to do that.”
Now, through a business relationship between the two companies, NTE delivers credibility and demonstrated value of these technology solutions for managing supply chains to the table.
“A key message in teaching supply chain and procurement professionals on how to manage supply chains is that technology can help,” said Mauldin. “NTE provides testimonies and examples to that effect, and introduces these professionals to technologies available out there.”
“Jack Quinn Solutions teaches customers how to shift from a tactical to strategic approach in managing supply chains, said Robert Rocque, chief executive officer of NTE. “They are innovative, flexible and all over the country. We are thrilled to work with them to offer value-added services to our clients in need of supply chain management training and certification.”
JQS facilitates monthly training boot camps at locations across the country, making it accessible for procurement professionals from all over to get trained and certified.
One of the things NTE found most appealing in Jack Quinn Solutions was their commitment to their customers. “If participants go through the training and don’t pass the certification, Jack Quinn Solutions will pay the re-exam fees until they are certified,” said Rocque. “That demonstrates not only their belief in the importance and value of the certification itself, but also in how good they are at training for it.”
