Woodland Hills, CA June 17, 2013


Infocast is delighted to announce its Automation, Robotics & the Supply Chain Summit, next month in Pittsburgh from the 16-17 at the Fairmont Pittsburgh. With 8 real-world case studies and a faculty comprised of system integrators, robotics and automation technology providers, plus the companies utilizing those technologies today, this ground-breaking summit will demonstrate how to plan, operate and justify the costs of an automated supply chain and materials handling operation. Two dual-track workshops precede the summit; Constructing a Roadmap for Successful Automation and Building Your Automated Supply Chain Team, and survey the economics of automating your materials handling operation.

The market for supply chain and distribution services is in upheaval, driven by increasing consumer demand for next-day and same-day deliveries and an expanding variety of product offerings. By embracing advanced automated supply chain solutions and robotics, distributors and suppliers can expect to experience lower operational costs, greater throughput and ultimately higher revenues. But only those operators who are well versed in the financial risks and rewards, technical considerations, and long-term trends will prosper as the market for their services continues to evolve and grow. Infocast's Automation, Robotics & the Supply Chain Summit will be the place to learn about automating your materials handling operation, network with leaders in the field, share experiences with peers and develop the strategies needed to strike deals in an increasingly complex market.
