JDA's December 11 Event Focuses on Critical Trends in Warehouse Management


Attendees at Atlanta event will gain warehouse management insights from industry experts and be inspired by real-world success stories

Packed with employees, inventory, equipment, and time-intensive processes, warehouses represent one of the single largest cost centers in the end-to-end supply chain. Warehouse performance is also the ultimate factor in ensuring speedy, reliable, accurate delivery of customer orders. Every day, millions of dollars in profits — as well as the immeasurable value of long-term customer loyalty — are placed at risk in underperforming warehouses around the world.

How can companies ensure that their warehouse performance is truly optimized? JDA Software Group, Inc., is hosting an informative half-day event on December 11 in Atlanta, Georgia, to help manufacturers and retailers maximize the value of their warehouse operations. Held in the W Atlanta – Midtown, the event begins at 9:00 a.m. and wraps up at 1:00 p.m. following a lunch session.
