While the picture for material handling is rosier for next year, according to a recent study, executives should still exercise caution when reviewing investments in material handling, says Jensen.
“Far too often, a material handling investment is not vetted rigorously enough, leading to the distinct possibilities of slower than expected returns, or worse, no return at all,” Jensen says.
Attendees at the seminar will learn:
- How to ensure a material handling or equipment investment is warranted.
- How to garner maximum return for each specific material handling investment opportunity.
- How to identify portions of any material handling design or investment that are NOT driving appropriate fiscal returns.
- Approaches to ensuring senior management is in complete alignment with the return on the investment.
“The advantage to the virtual conference is that you can attend my session or others at a time that fits your schedule,” says Jensen. “It’s like bringing an expert right to your computer.”
Top experts who also gave presentations at the virtual conference discussed topics that include: equipment investment, picking and packing operations, automated systems, and SaaS warehouse management systems.
The webinar is about 45 minutes.
