Webinar: Building the WMS Business Case 2018

CSCMP and Softeon Webinar with Tompkins on WMS 2018

Not to be missed for anyone considering new WMS solutions!

This webinar has passed, but you can view on-demand here.

Warehouse Management Systems are mature, having been around since about 1975. Yet, right now the WMS market is very hot, as a variety of market and business factors lead to high levels of WMS adoption. 

Those factors include: new omnichannel and eCommerce fulfillment requirements; aging WMS platforms; mergers and acquisitions; companies developing their own 3PL capabilities; more extensive compliance requirements, moves to much more automated distribution facilities, and more.

Whatever the scenario, the new WMS must almost always be cost justified. In this fast-paced webinar discussion, two veterans of the industry will cover all the basics – and add new insight based on what’s different in 2018.

Discussion to be led by Kevin Hume, Vice President - Supply Chain Technology at prominent consulting firm Tompkins International, and Dan Gilmore, Chief Marketing Officer at leading WMS provider Softeon and long-time WMS industry veteran.
