Midwest Wheel Companies has been named a finalist in the 10th annual Constellation SuperNova Awards.
The program recognizes teams and leaders for their innovative application of disruptive technology and transformative initiatives. Midwest Wheel was chosen as a leading program in the area of Tech Modernization and Optimization.
Public voting for the SuperNova Awards will take place online from Aug. 10 – Sept. 4, 2020. The winners will be announced at the SuperNova Awards Gala on Oct. 28 in Half Moon Bay, Calif., during Constellation’s Connected Enterprise and globally live-streamed.
Midwest Wheel moved from a legacy character-based ERP to a modern html5 user interface hosted in the cloud with warehouse logistics and analytics. Over 100 years of using a pencil and a piece of paper evolved into a modern business system with extensive tracking, logistics and product picking. Steve McEnany, vice president of marketing and technology, and the entire Midwest Wheel team believe in learning new technology and implementing it on their own in as many aspects as possible.
Midwest Wheel is positioning itself to be agile and take advantage of new innovations such as AI and ML pivoting into the next 100 years. Never needing to perform upgrades in the conventional sense and maintaining a thirst for innovation is a distinct competitive differentiator in what some would be considered a legacy industry, according to the announcement.
“We have seen mass acceleration of transformation projects. What would have taken four years has been accomplished in four months. Mission critical projects have dominated this year’s SuperNova Awards,” says R. “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder, Constellation Research.
“The finalists selected for the 2020 SuperNova Awards represent individuals, teams and organizations who have overcome significant hurdles amidst a pandemic and post-pandemic environment. Their dedication to their customers, fellow employees, and partners is massively commendable. The judges had a very tough time identifying the finalists this year as the competition was intense,” Wang says.
“With our modern approach to key systems we allow the team to remain lean and innovate with the latest tools,” McEnany says.
The 2020 SuperNova Award judges, comprised of technology thought leaders and journalists, selected finalists who demonstrated success in implementing leading-edge business models and emerging technologies for their organizations. Finalists achieved remarkable results, including competitive advantage, cost savings and quantifiable improvements in agility.
