Eric Weisbrod and Jason Chester were honoured for helping manufacturers around the globe improve products, processes, and profitability through quality data in the cloud.
INFINITYQS® International, Inc. (InfinityQS), the global authority on data-driven enterprise quality, proudly announces 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 to the cold food and beverage space.
Each year, Supply & Demand Chain Executive reveals its Pros to Know list recognising over 200 executives that lead initiatives helping their organisations 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 recognises influential individuals whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped the global cold food supply chain.
This marks Eric 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 new features and updates directly address the quality management needs of modern manufacturers. Under Eric’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 organisations.
“Outdated quality control methods are still common in many manufacturing plants, even in industries like food and beverage where quality and safety standards are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. When quality data is locked away in paper checklists, spreadsheets, or siloed databases, it prevents a proactive approach to quality and leaves valuable insights untapped,” explained Weisbrod. “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 organisation-wide improvement, and even drive high levels of quality up and down the supply chain. I’m proud to be recognised for helping today’s manufacturers make the move to digital with InfinityQS solutions.”
Earning his second appearance on the Pros to Know list, Jason Chester was honoured 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. Many manufacturers believe digital initiatives are long-term, strategic investments that come with high costs and risks,” commented Chester. “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 towards digital transformation and lay the foundation for smart manufacturing operations of the future.”
