The regional event provides an opportunity for information sharing and networking as well as a product and services exhibit for businesses located in the North Texas region.

SRSI will be one of the 40+ exhibitors at the event. In addition, Ben York, founder of SRSI will be co-presenting with Craig Wilensky, CEO JASCI Software and Charlie Armstrong, Former VP Logistics of Home Depot, Founder Orion Advisors.  Their educational session is titled “How to Leverage ‘The Cloud’ to Optimize Your Supply Chain.” They will discuss the benefits of cloud systems and services for fulfillment and processing operations of all sizes, not just the largest companies with the biggest budgets.

“In order for companies to compete in this new fast-paced environment, they need to integrate new levels of software and technology. This is already happening where suppliers and sellers are leveraging the cloud to optimize their supply chains, as consumers gravitate to ordering on marketplaces and web-stores. We will take a closer look at how cloud technology will level the playing field,” notes York.
