Are you looking for some justification to go to this event?
One of the best benefits for companies at this conference is to attend any session run by their customers at the event (e.g. Lowe's, Wal-Mart, Dot Foods, Wakefern, etc.). You can hear their plans and ask questions of them -- most of the retailers/distributors also have round-table sessions where you can have some one-on-one time with them.
The other activity that can be very helpful for companies at this conference is to network with peer companies -- they may be in your industry or in a similar situation as your company. You can see what your peers are doing for data sync and what issues they have overcome.
Distributors Find Their Solution For GDSN
As retailers such as Wal-Mart push Data Sync adoption through their supply chain, distributors are hearing the final call for GDSN. Aligntrac's Sync/PDI for Distributors service makes it easy to answer this call !
Aligntrac Keeps Watch on Data Sync Standards
There are a number of changes coming in the GDSN Major Release 3, but it will not be deployed until Q2 2016 -- Aligntrac is tracking the release closely along with 1WorldSync (we have been involved in meetings with them on this) and our Sync/PDI solution will be compliant with the release.
