PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 08, 2021 -- Chain.io supply chain expert, Brian Glick, will speak at GDS Group’s virtual Supply Chain Insight Summit North America on September 15th at 9:45 a.m. EST. Glick will be joined by Brian Summers, vice president, information technology of Magnate Worldwide, to outline their companies' relationship and divulge how Chain.io was able to transition from "vendor" to become a valuable "strategic partner" for Magnate.
“This workshop will cover specific milestones, deliverables and key takeaways that participants can apply to assess whether their providers have earned the right to call themselves a ‘partner,’ and will include tips to help guide and grow new relationships into long-term partnerships,” said Glick. “At Chain.io, we work hand-in-hand with your internal IT departments to understand the intricacies of your systems, what business processes and operations are being impacted and ensure end-user experience is being prioritized.”
