Learn how to run a connected, intelligent and responsive supply chain: Infor APAC Supply Chain Virtual Summit 2020


Industry experts and customers to tackle post-pandemic supply chain structures, share best practices: June 23-24

 

SINGAPORE | Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Media OutReach – June 19, 2020
 Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by
industry, today announced the Infor APAC Supply Chain Virtual Summit 2020 will take
place online June 23-24 with a central theme of how to run
a next-generation supply chain.

 

The two half-day
summit will cover a range of topics focused on Supply Chain 4.0, from smart
warehousing to running a live supply chain in real time. Attendees will gain
insider tips and insights from experts as well as industry peers, such as IDC,
DB Schenker, Standard Chartered, Treasury Wine Estates, Greensill, LF Logistics
and EBP Global. The event is supported by the Global Supply Chain Council and
Geek+.

 

According
to IDC, almost 60% of ASEAN, and Australia and New Zealand manufacturers said
their top priority in the next three to four years is to improve supply chain
performance.

 

Cas Brentjens, vice president, Infor Nexus Asia
Pacific Japan & India, Middle East Africa, will discuss how to run live
supply chains with real-time insights.

 

“To
remain competitive and resilient in today’s world, supply chains must be
connected, responsive, and digitally enabled. Organisations that leverage data
and rich visualisation can transform their tracking to generate real business
insights that will give them a competitive edge. The APAC Supply Chain Virtual
Summit is all about how to do this, with in-depth roundtables and networking to
complement presentations,” Brentjens said.

 

Stephanie
Krishnan, IDC research director
and expert in Industry 4.0, will share
new economic and supply chain market research with participants.

 

“With
the COVID-19 pandemic shaking up supply chains globally, having intelligent,
fully connected supply chains is more important than ever before. Today’s
disrupted business landscape requires an optimised supply chain that is
seamless, transparent and connected. This helps companies control costs,
enhances quality and ultimately, builds resilience. We predict that by the end
of 2023, 40% of all Asia-Pacific manufacturing supply chains will have invested
in supply chain resiliency and AI, resulting in 15% productivity
improvement.”

 

Michael
Sugirin, global head of open account trade and trade implementation, Standard
Chartered,
is a recognised leader in supply chain finance, mobile
money and complex treasury solutions. He will present new findings into supply
chain finance: best practices during Covid-19.

 

“The
pandemic has revealed vulnerabilities of supply chains, and many of our clients
are rethinking their strategies. We’ll examine what key themes are emerging and
offer insights into what corporates are doing to mitigate liquidity
risks,” Sugirin said.

 

Bobby
Mathew, global director, Treasury Wine Estates
, will
discuss how his company has digitised its global supply chain from vineyard to
bottle.

 

“Innovation
is paramount at Treasury Wine Estates. We’ve transformed our company over the
past few years, optimising our operations by digitising our global supply
chain, which has propelled our growth in new and existing markets. We’re
looking forward to sharing our story with delegates and discussing our
experience,” Mathew said.

 

Some of the largest brands in the region rely on Infor’s
expertise to boost their bottom line. Last December, supermarket giant Coles
selected Infor Nexus, a Leader in Gartner’s Magic
Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks
, for its global trade platform to
create enhanced international supply chain visibility.
