COLUMBUS, Ohio (March 31, 2017) — VARGO®, a leading provider of material-handling system integration, warehouse execution software and equipment solutions for major e-commerce and distribution centers, will present two industry-critical seminars at the upcoming ProMat trade show April 3-6, 2017, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The first seminar, “Wholesale — The Next Frontier for Waveless,” will be presented by a team of VARGO® experts. The seminar will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. on April 3 in Theater E. Seminar attendees will learn about the unique business requirements of wholesale distribution. In wholesale distribution, the SKU distribution is not as random as with e-commerce, yet it does not have the visibility of point-of-sale data as retail. VARGO® experts will discuss alternative concepts, such as waveless, continuous flow processes, can result in more efficient fulfillment results.
The second seminar — “E-commerce Put Wall — Turn Time is Key to Flow” — will be presented from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on April 4 in Theater C and from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on April 6 in Theater E. Seminar attendees will learn about how put walls — which come in different types and from different providers — all have one thing in common: The faster the cubbies turn, the more volume that can be produced. At this seminar, attendees will learn about different configurations and their benefits as well as achieving flow via waving, overlapping waves, and a continuous flow, Warehouse Execution System (WES). The seminar will also touch on semi-coupling and decoupling the packing process from the put wall.
