Two InfinityQS Leaders Awarded by Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics

Eric Weisbrod and Jason Chester honored for helping manufacturers improve products, processes, profitability

Published: Thursday, April 21, 2022 - 11:59

(InfinityQS International: Fairfax, VA) -- InfinityQS International, the global authority on data-driven enterprise quality, has announced that Eric Weisbrod, vice president of product management, and Jason Chester, director of global channel programs, have been named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine’s 2022 Pros to Know award list. Additionally, Weisbrod has earned a spot on the 2022 Food Logistics’ Rockstars of the Supply Chain list for his contributions in the cold food and beverage space.

Each year, Supply & Demand Chain Executive reveals its Pros to Know list, which recognizes more than 200 executives that lead initiatives to help their organizations prepare for supply chain challenges and the ever-changing nature of today’s business world. The magazine’s sister publication, Food Logistics, presents the annual Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award, which recognizes influential individuals whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped the global cold food supply chain.

This marks Weisbrod’s third time as a Pro to Know and second as a Rockstar of the Supply Chain. Both award programs commended Weisbrod for leading the evolution of InfinityQS’ Statistical Process Control (SPC) software to ensure that new features and updates directly address the quality management needs of modern manufacturers. Under Weisbrod’s guidance, InfinityQS has helped clients across industries implement its cloud-based solutions—Enact and ProFicient on Demand—to gain anytime, anywhere access to strategic insights for improved quality and compliance, decreased costs and risk, and enhanced performance across their organizations.

“Outdated quality control methods are still common in many manufacturing plants, even in industries like food and beverage, where quality and safety standards are particularly stringent,” explains Weisbrod. “When quality data are locked away in paper checklists, spreadsheets, or siloed databases, they prevent a proactive approach to quality and leave valuable insights untapped. But when data from all processes, lines, and sites in an enterprise are united in the cloud, the big picture of quality forms. Manufacturers can then solve production issues in real time, discover the greatest opportunities for organizationwide improvement, and even drive high levels of quality up and down the supply chain. I’m proud to be recognized for helping today’s manufacturers make the move to digital with InfinityQS solutions.”

Earning his second appearance on the Pros to Know list, Chester was honored for educating InfinityQS’ strategic channel partners and industries at large on manufacturing optimization through next-generation solutions like InfinityQS’ Enact. With demand for flexible, digital quality tools on the rise in the wake of Covid-19, Chester has helped InfinityQS’ global channel partners successfully integrate Enact into their portfolios of offerings. Now more manufacturers around the world are deploying InfinityQS software to monitor production remotely, increase agility, improve performance, and build resilience.

“The benefits of moving from paper to digital quality management are clear, yet we still see some hesitation due to misconceptions about the transformation journey,” says Chester. “Many manufacturers believe digital initiatives are long-term, strategic investments that come with high costs and risks. But InfinityQS and the Partner Program are shifting this paradigm. Our cloud-based quality solutions empower manufacturers to rapidly deploy technology to target specific challenges or weaknesses, and then scale implementation as needed. Ultimately, we’re helping clients take the first steps toward digital transformation and lay the foundation for smart manufacturing operations of the future.”
