- Monday, 10/21, 2 PM, Room 109: "New Logistics Formats for the Omni-channel Retail Age," led by Manhattan Associates Senior Manager Vijay Ramachandran and Aberdeen Group Senior Research Analyst Bob Heaney
"As of October 2012, 50 percent of Americans owned a smartphone. This marks an inflection point for companies as they strive to make their supply networks more seamless and responsive to the always-connected customer," said Ramachandran. "Supply chains have become commerce differentiators—and the need to synchronize sales and fulfillment processes across channels and network nodes is paramount to creating great customer experiences."
- Monday, 10/21, 2 PM, Room 201: "Is there ever an average day? Incorporating variability into Transportation Modeling," led by Manhattan Associates Senior Director Mike Mulqueen and Papa John's Senior Director Eric Hartman
"Shippers and retailers often struggle to develop robust transportation policies because it's difficult to evaluate the effect of uncertainty and variability on their network," said Mulqueen. "Only by taking that variability into account can you create an operationally-resilient transportation policy that reflects the realities of weather delays, road closings, shipment delays and other hard-to-predict variables."
