Modex 2016. Called “the Greatest Supply Chain Show on Earth,” it’s where 850 of the leading manufacturing and supply chain providers gathered to showcase their latest and greatest solutions in early April. There were four powerful keynotes, a supply chain education summit and more than 100 hands-on education sessions.
As a reseller of JDA Warehouse Management and Warehouse Labor Management software, we spent some time in the JDA booth, showing the latest version of WMS to prospective customers at Modex 2016. The remainder of the time we walked the show floor to try to get caught up on the latest from other material handling and software vendors. If you weren’t able to get to Modex 2016, here are some recaps and summaries from some well-respected sources in our industry:
- Bob Trebilcock’s final thoughts on Modex and the future of Material Handling, as well as an earlier take on Modex and CMMS
- Roberto Michel weighs in on the prevalence of Robotics
- Dan Gilmore gives his take on the best solutions he saw (Part 1 and Part 2)
MODEX is the one-of-a-kind manufacturing and supply chain industry event where solution providers and powerful buyers come to meet, network, and get deals done face-to-face. These buyers come from over 110 countries around the world looking for ways to increase the speed, efficiency and performance of their supply chains. They want what you have: solutions. Only MODEX gives 800 of the top material handling, logistics and supply chain providers the opportunity to showcase their solutions for these key decision-makers on the show floor at the Georgia World Congress Center. Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the next Modex show being held April 9 – 12, 2018.
