The tired old trio of people process and technology is definitely due for a makeover… and Scout RFP may have the answer. In this webinar, they will be joined by Rendi Miller, Director of Travel & Procurement at Splunk Inc. to talk about the potential associated with combining Automation, Collaboration, and Education.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that there are regional constraints to this event even thought it is being hosted by APICS’ Atlanta chapter – their events are national caliber. Based on research conducted over a seven-month period, the Material Handling Institute (MHI) has compiled a research report covering four fundamental aspects of the supply chain industry: technology, the consumer, the workforce, and logistics infrastructure. In this webinar, Stephen T. Hopper, PE Founder & Principal, Inviscid Consulting, will present a summary of the study’s findings and offer specific recommendations on how supply chain-dependent businesses can prepare to meet the significant challenges they will face on the road to 2030.
