This year’s ProMat DX, like many things this past year, looked a bit different than previous conferences as the event took place in a completely virtual format. Nevertheless, the digital event, designed to give manufacturing and supply chain professionals cutting edge education, featured a full lineup of compelling keynote speakers, seminars, product demos and networking sessions allowing us to connect with colleagues and industry leaders.
6 River Systems shared several exciting announcements this week at ProMat. As the conference comes to a close, here are the highlights from our team:
- Footwear brand Crocs led a seminar discussing how the company quickly deployed a popup warehouse in just 90 days, in partnership with supply chain consultants Sedlak and our team at 6RS, to support their 2020 peak season. As a result, Crocs saw a 182% pick rate improvement reaching full volume within two days of go-live. The warehouse was also able to reduce training time from 1 week to one day.
- Our co-founder and co-CEO Jerome Dubois had the opportunity to introduce the keynote session, “Beyond COVID-19: Building Supply Chain Resilience.”
- Jerome also joined Rick Goe, VP of Supply Chain Management at DM Fulfillment Services, for “Building a Business with 6 River Systems featuring DM Fulfillment.” The seminar discussed how our wall-to-wall solution helped the company flex their fulfillment muscles to not only survive the pandemic, but also grow their business.
Jerome reflected on 6 River’s partnership with DM and noted, “I think it’s a great example of how a technology provider can work with a service provider like [DM] and really align itself toward the end goal of making sure that these things were all in place with the foresight of getting flexible technologies in place prior to a pandemic…we’re thrilled to be a part of this voyage.”
- We released an interactive “pick with Chuck” video during the conference – a virtual experience that gave all ProMat attendees an opportunity to pick with our collaborative robot in a realistic warehouse setting from the comfort of their own office.
Step into the shoes of a warehouse associate and supervisor as you perform induct, picking and takeoff tasks without ever leaving your desk.
The 6RS team is available to continue the conversations from ProMat DX, discuss our wall-to-wall solution in more detail and give virtual product demos. Interested? Reach out to email@example.com or contact us directly here.
We’d like to thank everyone who made this year’s ProMat show possible and to those who had the opportunity to watch our sessions and connect with our team. We’re looking forward to next year’s event!
