Explaining the philosophy behind the firm’s central focus on Supply Chain and S&OP Planning, Mrzlak, the President of the company says, “We believe in concentrating in one crucial area, and doing it better than anyone else.” The strength of this unique methodology emanates from the company’s pragmatic, educational approach to help customers 1) address issues in their supply chain; 2) re-engineer processes that will boost supply chain functionality and profitability; 3) strengthen Supply Chain’s relationship with S&OP. ChainSequence also guides client teams in selecting technology solutions that yield maximum improvement in the shortest time, although Mrzlak cautions that selecting absolution is only half the battle. Once a solution has been determined, Mrzlak’s emphasizes maintaining the integrity of the new process definition though constructive deployment is key. Addressing this successfully lays a strong foundation for agility and better planning in the future.
The company has a sterling reputation for on-site guidance and well-defined solutions that provide clear instructions, outline required data inputs and outputs, and use achievable milestones to meet goals.
ChainSequence injects a vital principle of simplification into its client’s enterprise processes, ensuring the integration of an end-to-end, best-practice solution that–– apart from streamlining supply chain processes—also provides meaningful insights toward improving workflow.

In many cases, unnecessary touchpoints and bottlenecks in legacy business processes are also effectively identified and removed, improving operations and sales channels that, in turn, increase their customer satisfaction rates, from initial customer interaction through on-time delivery.
Mrzlak recalls a client once compared ChainSequence leaders to ‘plumbers,’ meaning they have the rare ability to both engage strategically with senior client leadership to architect solutions, and then “lay the pipes” to deploy solutions alongside client teams at an operational level.
Numerous clients have benefited from ChainSequence’s exceptional services. One such client was an international supplier of semiconductors that decided to expand beyond their internal business to the external market. During this large endeavor, ChainSequence completely re-engineered the client’s entire supply chain––from demand planning to order fulfillment with a proactive end-to-end planning model that maximized worldwide resources, balanced automation and human intervention, reduced previously elongated administrative cycle times, and increased customer responsiveness.
ChainSequence’s core services include in-house education/workshop programs within-site assessments for organizations that require provable business cases before embarking on an improvement initiative. Moreover, ChainSequence also provides staff training in Supply Chain planning and S&OP. In the months to come, Mrzlak says, “ChainSequence will continue to pursue opportunities to develop significantly nimbler business processes, and research new technologies that can better respond to fluctuating market drivers and more accurately align complex supply chains with customer demand.”
