HOUSTON, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Satellite Logistics Group (SLG), a leading supply-chain solution provider for the beverage industry, announced today that Scott Moorad, the company's vice president of business development and strategy, has been named one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine's "2016 Pros to Know."
The annual "Pros to Know" awards honor select supply chain executives who are leading initiatives to help their clients, companies, or the supply chain community at large to prepare for the significant challenges in the year ahead.
SLG's Moorad is recognized for helping to develop a ground-breaking solution to enable beer brewers to tackle a major pain point in their supply chain: keg loss due to poor asset utilization. KegID® asset-tracking technology allows brewers to scan each keg (or pallet) using a barcode scanner or smartphone, so they know where each keg is, what's in it, and how long it has been gone. This real-time visibility helps them to maximize keg use, improve accountability, and minimize keg loss.
KegID® has set the industry standard for keg scanning, in part, because of its unique analytic capabilities. The in-depth data captured can be used to improve keg turn performance, identify preventative maintenance needs, and determine the number of kegs needed in a brewer's supply chain.
"Under Scott's direction, KegID® has become a strategic asset-tracking solution that adapts to suit brewers' needs – from integrating with brewery production technology to powering our Kegspediter® keg management services," said Kevin Brady, SLG president and CEO. "We're excited that the editorial team at Supply & Demand Chain Executive has recognized Scott for his commitment to helping brewers address one of their key supply chain challenges."
