About the Event:

"Unlocking the Hidden Potential with Supply Chain Mobility"

Enterprise mobility is making significant inroads in the business world, with about 90% of employees already using their own technology (in at least a limited capacity) at work. In most cases, business simply can't block the trend. Some organizations believe mobility may help employees be more productive. Others say it increases employee morale and convenience by using their own devices and makes the company look like a flexible and attractive employer.

The APICS Ventura Professional Development Meeting (PDM) is geared to help you assess how mobility may work for your company. You will leave with information to help you decide for yourself what may be the best path to take when implementing your supply chain mobility.

Attendees will learn:

  • How the benefits of supply chain mobility are available now.
  • The aspects of running your business from a portable device.
  • An organization's mobile needs.
  • How can your mobility needs be met.
  • A supply chain mobility platform development rationale.
  • The benefits for upgrading a supply chain with mobile.
  • Security concerns exist within supply chain with mobile.
  • Supply chain mobility apps available.
  • The meaning, trends and predictions of "Bring-Your-Own-Device" (BYOD) by staff.
  • Best practices for "Bring-Your-Own-Device"

Implementing Supply Chain Mobility is a stepping-stone towards a broader, more strategic mobility initiative as part of your successful BYOD deployment can be transformative for your business.
