Named to Great Supply Chain Partners 2018 by SupplyChainBrain

Annual Listing Recognizes Leading Supply Chain Solution Providers Based on Customer Nominations

Open Sky Group is honored to announce its inclusion in the “Top 100 Great Supply Chain Partners 2018.” It’s the company’s sixth naming to this annual listing that is based on customer nominations and compiled and published each year by SupplyChainBrain magazine. Open Sky Group is a global specialist in JDA Warehouse Management, JDA Warehouse Labor Management, and JDA Transportation Management software.

“It’s an honor to be named for the sixth time. Our rapid implementation methodology is changing how the industry views JDA upgrades and implementations and leading to quicker installation, reduced modifications, and faster return on investment for our clients,” said Chad Kramlich, COO for Open Sky Group. “We are focused on consistently delivering exceptional results by leveraging software to the fullest extent and extending that value for clients through services like managed support and hosting. Congratulations to all who made the Top 100 Great Supply Chain Partners 2018 listing!”

Nice-Pak Products, Inc., a global manufacturer of pre-moistened wipes including brands such as Nice ′N Clean®, Grime Boss®, and Wet-Nap®, began working with Open Sky Group over a year ago on support of WMS.

“Open Sky Group teams are extremely knowledgeable, responsive and flexible,” said Visvaldis Steinbahs, Senior WMS Analyst for Nice-Pak Products. “They listen to our concerns and address root cause of issues, not just the immediate challenges. Open Sky Group is a great supply chain partner!”

“For sixteen years running, SupplyChainBrain has published our much-anticipated list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners — a select group of companies whose customers recognize them for providing outstanding solutions and services,” said Brad Berger, publisher of SupplyChainBrain. “This year’s field of nominees was competitive and inspiring – coming from all sectors of supply chain management.”

Open Sky Group was selected for the listing out of thousands of nominations from a six-month poll in which readers were asked to nominate providers whose products, services or solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service, and overall supply chain performance. The purpose of the list is to focus on those providers who have so impressed their customers that they deserve to be held up as examples for others. The complete list can be found on

As part of a comprehensive solutions approach, Nice-Pak Products is a manufacturer and marketing partner for leading retailers who want to deliver superior quality applicators, formulas and packaging under their own brands and deliver the best value to their shoppers. Nice-Pak Products also offers exciting brand entries to further create and expand wet wipe categories: Nice ′N Clean®, the first complete line of sustainable personal wipes; Grime Boss®, the essential cleaning tool for quick, yet serious cleaning, inside and outside the home; Wet-Nap®, the original brand with a new look and premium cloth-like wipe.
