The future of distribution has arrived. Is your organization prepared?

The fourth industrial revolution has arrived — and as a result, executives across the globe have been compelled to ponder what the world’s increasing reliance on innovative digital tools and big data will mean for their organizations. Their considerations inevitably come to one conclusion: that soon, tried-and-true operational processes will no longer pass muster amid a fast-evolving industry landscape.

To remain competitive, distribution executives will need to update their perspectives and develop distribution strategies that are better suited to the reality and demands of a digitally-savvy, data-empowered world.

The time to prepare is now. On Wednesday, October 6th, from 4:30 PM to 5:45 PM, join Gerent and Salesforce for a deep dive into the state of distribution today and learn how innovative players are reimagining their operations to meet the fourth industrial revolution head-on.

During this event, attendees will have the chance to hear a panel of experts share their insights into the current challenges facing distribution as well as air their own thoughts via an interactive roundtable discussion. Representatives from Orgill, a major distribution organization, will also be present as a real-life case study of how Salesforce CRM systems can help distributors bolster their achievement potential.

These conversations will explore timely topics such as:

  • How distribution leaders can imbue their supply chains with greater flexibility and adaptability by integrating AI tools and customer self-service platforms
  • Why distributors should use big data analytics to improve their S&OP alignment and gain significant visibility on product profitability
  • How distributors can leverage technology to bolster efficiency and attract a younger workforce
