Pivotal Role of Inventory Optimization in Supply Chain Transformation Leads the Discussion at Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference Roundtable

ATLANTA — May 17, 2017 — Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, invites attendees of the 2017 Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference to register for the roundtable, Driving Supply Chain Transformation and Optimizing Inventory Investments. The conference, located at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Ariz., will be held May 23 — 25, 2017.

One of the key challenges for supply chain organizations is the ability to balance inventory investments with service level goals. These two powerful levers can have a significant impact on both a company's topline growth and bottom line profitability. Multi–echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) helps ensure the right levels of stock are at the right places to create the optimal balance between inventory cost and service level. This interactive roundtable will pull from nearly two decades of experience with companies such as HP, Intel Corporation and Moen to highlight how MEIO can free up millions of dollars trapped in working capital.
