Are you as pumped about the upcoming ProMat 2015 show (March 23-26) in Chicago as we are?. From a technology standpoint, it’s always fascinating to experience first-hand the new innovations out there that ensure the world of material handling and logistics runs as smoothly as it does—day in and day out—without a glitch.
We’re also excited about one of ProMat’s keynote speakers: the one and only Steve Wozniak (a.k.a. The Woz) who is one of the great legends of the IT industry. Together with Steve Jobs, the Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist is of course famous for co-founding the company Apple and developing the legendary models Apple I and Apple II, the first true personal computers with a keyboard.
The pioneers who made it happen
During a scheduled fireside chat with DC Velocity, The Woz will be sharing his views on the latest iPhones, smartwatches, and the state of technology and risk in America. He’s also expected to make compelling technology predictions and investment strategies for Big Data, robotics, automation and more.
It’s hard to imagine the world without the wizardry that is computer technology as we know it today. Without the pioneering minds of Wozniak, Jobs, Bill Gates and Paul Allen—as well as many other brilliant people too numerous to mention here—we clearly wouldn’t have the capabilities we have today, such as those offered by 4SIGHT Logistics Solution.
How to avert a $500,000 mistake
At this year’s ProMat, you’ll find 4SIGHT in McCormick Place – South at booth #4870 where we’ll be hard at work demonstrating our 4SIGHT YARD™ Management System. 4SIGHT YARD utilizes the latest RFID and GPS technology to collect location and trailer data and provide accurate, real-time information that will help your facility keep track of everything going on in the yard as well as automate workflows and events.
From scheduling to reporting, 4SIGHT YARD helps increase visibility, productivity and sustainability from the time a trailer enters your yard until the time it leaves.
Just imagine risking losing $500,000—or roughly 25,000 gallons—of paint product bound for a large retailer due to only one lost trailer and a sudden unexpected turn in the weather. A paint manufacturer actually experienced such an unfortunate event, but 4SIGHT YARD could have prevented the loss from happening in the first place.
So don’t get caught out in the cold . . . we invite you to visit 4SIGHT’s booth at ProMat 2015 to learn more and receive a 4SIGHT YARD demo for yourself. And better yet, experiencing a personal demo qualifies you to be entered into a drawing to win Apple’s new (and amazingly thin at only 6.1 mm) iPad Air 2!
We look forward to seeing everyone at ProMat 2015, including The Woz.
