Oak Brook, Illinois - February 22, 2016 - Optricity Corp., a leading provider of supply chain optimization software, has signed on as a Champion Sponsor of the Warehousing Education and Research Council's (WERC) 39th Annual Conference for Logistics Professionals. The Conference will be held in Providence, Rhode Island at the Rhode Island Convention Center on May 15-18, 2016 and includes three days packed with educational sessions. The annual event routinely draws nearly 1,100 senior-level warehousing, logistics and supply chain professionals.
This year Optricity is celebrating its 10th anniversary of WERC partnership, notes Lindsay Olla, marketing manager for the firm. That decade-long relationship, however, is just one of many reasons Optricity chose to sponsor the 2016 Conference.
"We're supporting WERC's conference and educational programming because we know, from experience, that it is one of the best organizations to be a part of," Olla explains. "WERC's dedication to spreading knowledge and connecting individuals within the warehousing industry is worth the investment."
In fact, Optricity has routinely made the WERC Conference a capstone in its marketing and industry initiatives, she continues: "The people we have met over the years and the lasting connections we've built—along with the knowledge that we have had the chance to absorb and share with others—has been an asset to our team and how we operate."
During the WERC Conference's education sessions, subject matter experts share industry-specific ideas for actionable strategies to improve processes and operations in a variety of topic areas—metrics, outsourcing, people, transportation, reverse logistics, real estate and more—in industries such as retail, healthcare / pharmaceutical and manufacturing. The Conference also includes off-site facility tours, intimate and relaxed networking, and a Solutions Center featuring the latest innovative products and solutions.
Optricity's Solutions Center exhibit will offer access to our optimization experts and insight to upcoming products. "Up until now, we've been known as the 'slotting gurus,'" says Olla. " This year we will unveil our innovative, new technologies focusing on solutions that improve operational precision within the warehouse."
