Kenco’s Kristi Montgomery Presenting On 3PL Technology Integration At Aberdeen SCM Summit
Kenco’s Kristi Montgomery, vice president, IT, will discuss “3PL Technology Integration” at the upcoming Aberdeen Supply Chain Management (SCM) Summit, taking place April 9–10, 2013 in Chicago.
Montgomery will identify issues that companies should address when transitioning to a new 3PL partner. Along with other IT leaders, she will explore how technology integration and data exchange have been handled by leading supply chain companies that faced the need to integrate 3PL services across warehousing and shipping, transportation and delivery, inventory control, customer service, and finance.
“The presenters will talk about using technology to make the transition smoother and give customers a better experience,” said Montgomery. “We will also discuss long-term relationships and how we have successfully integrated multiple supply chain functions to provide better visibility and deeper partnership opportunities.”
