Norm Saenz to Speak At WERC 2017

4.12.2017

St. Onge Company's Norm Saenz will speak during two educational sessions at the 40th Annual WERC Conference in Fort Worth, Texas. On May 1st, from 2:15 PM to 3:15 PM, Norm will be one of six panelists for a session called "Tools to Tame the Warehouse Beast."

To tame the wild-at-heart ways of the dynamic distribution center, one must understand all the moving parts and their interconnectedness throughout the operation. This presentation focuses on the key elements that drive operational success: people; software and technology selection; utilized equipment; software implementation; the data needed to set, support and achieve goals; and the metrics that define success and provide visibility through data analysis.

On May 2nd, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM, Norm will lead a session with Bobbie Melton called "Improve DC Operations to Handle Changing Demands."

Distribution managers are dealing with a variety of changing demands—including an increase in the number of SKUs and a tremendous uptick in small e-commerce orders. Further, many are running out of space, equipment and labor to mitigate the impact of these trends on their operations. This session details how to adapt to these changes over the years while maintaining the same facility footprint, by implementing new equipment, software and technologies.
