Tecsys Inc., an industry-leading supply chain management software company, announced the appointment of Steven Berkovitz to the position of chief platform officer. In this newly-created senior executive role, Berkovitz will focus on Tecsys’ strategic development and implementation of a unified approach to cloud architecture across product lines.
This overarching role will steer the technology platform that underpins the company’s growing SaaS operations while empowering teams both inside and outside of Tecsys to build the next-gen of supply chain solutions.
“The Tecsys platform has always been a distinct strategic advantage for our customers,” explains Peter Brereton, president and CEO of Tecsys. “Through Steven’s appointment and mandate, we are ensuring that that strategic advantage continues to equip our customers as supply chains get more complex and best practices continue to evolve.”
Berkovitz brings over 20 years’ experience working in technology and building software for the commerce, retail, supply chain, accounting and education industries. He was co-founder and CTO of OrderDynamics, a distributed order management company acquired by Tecsys in 2018. He serves as a technical advisor to multiple start-ups and has previously held roles with Tulip Retail and eCommera (now Isobar), having architected and built SaaS platforms, and led organizations through multi-tenancy and SaaS transitions.
“Software platforms are more than just apps and user interfaces,” explains Berkovitz. “The power of Tecsys’ platform lies in leveraging the product portfolio to build and support a robust set of cloud-centric, AI-driven services and applications that will power supply chain solutions across industries and verticals.”
On Tecsys, Berkovitz adds: “Tecsys enjoys a fantastic reputation for creating clarity from complex operational challenges across healthcare logistics, general distribution and retail verticals. As Tecsys continues to build on that pedigree in this new period of growth and transition to SaaS, I look forward to leveraging my experience by building innovative products and great engineering teams.”
