FOSTER CITY, Calif. -- E2open (NASDAQ: EOPN), the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for collaborative planning and execution across global trading networks, will be participating in the American Supply Chain and Logistics Summit, which will be held on December 8-10 in Dallas, Texas. At the event, E2open will be leading a workshop titled, "Accelerating Revenue Growth: Leveraging Your Supply Chain to Accelerate New Product Introduction (NPI) Processes," presented by Geoff Annesley, Industries General Manager at E2open. The company will also be hosting a booth as a silver sponsor.
In this session, which is taking place on Monday, December 8 at 1:55 p.m. (CT) in Stream Two, Annesley will identify the challenges that NPI creates in the supply chain for managing increasing complexity and cost, and will explain how businesses can integrate suppliers for better visibility and collaboration around NPI ramp, new technology introduction, and production. Annesley will also discuss how to quickly align the supply base to new product requirements and leverage the outsourced supply chain to nimbly respond to volatility in demand or supply.
"The pressures are greater than ever before for companies to rapidly get new products to market. When NPI is managed effectively, companies can gain a significant competitive advantage, but when not, this can be a huge setback for a business," said Michael Schmitt, Chief Marketing Officer at E2open. "Today, we're seeing more companies seeking solutions for how to enhance the success rate of NPI. Leveraging the power of the cloud to build more advanced and agile supply chains is one such approach. E2open's solutions enable many of today's largest global brands to have better visibility into their extended value networks, which helps them keep pace with the intense demands of NPI."
