Users of Logistex’s warehouse management and control software recently gathered at the Kettering Park Hotel for our fifth User Group. Delegates heard about the latest product development, attended workshops on how to make the most of the software, and engaged in lively discussions with their industry peers about how to address business challenges facing them today.
A highlight of the day was guest speaker Brian McBride, Chairman of ASOS and former MD of Amazon UK, who gave our closing speech. Brian spoke about digital disruption, citing the likes of Nokia and Kodak who went from being hugely successful to falling by the wayside as they did not respond to digital advances. He also spoke about the importance of mobile and social media, giving examples from ASOS and Amazon, and ultimately arguing that retailers only have two choices – ‘Evolve or Die.’
“All the speeches, presentations & workshops were highly professional, and the content was all current & relevant to our working world”
