SYNOPSlS: Unlocking Greater Value in Your Supply Chain

Samsung Roundtable Presented by LogiSYM

Held Last January 27, 2022
This roundtable was presented by LogiSYM, in collaboration with Samsung Electronics.
On the ground and in person with supply chain industry professionals networking and learning in a safe environment. Great start to our first on-ground event of the year and thanks to our partner Samsung Electronics for hosting it.

Moderated by LSCMS President, Dr. Raymon Krishnan with an expert panel including Nathalie Duchemin from Samsung Electronics and James Christopher from TMX, the expert panel reinforced that digitalisation of the supply chains will remain to be a key priority among businesses as we move towards a ‘better normal’.

 

In line with this, we can expect to see more businesses considering the implementation of automation solutions throughout their supply chain operations – but what should be considered before getting started on this automation journey?

 

Nathalie pointed out during the panel discussion, that it is beneficial to consider how automation or mobile solutions implemented can future-proof businesses, particularly in today’s uncertain business climate. Looking into solutions that can improve the resilience of the supply chain will be helpful should more disruptions happen. James emphasised the all-important factor of ensuring that your people are part of the journey after you have worked with experts to identify your business needs. With excellent input and a lively dialogue with almost 100% attendance, the event was a resounding success.
