NRF 2014 Interview by WhichPLM

Posted by Ryan Gudovitz on Tue, Feb, 25 2014 @ 11:00 AM

In the first of our exclusive vendor interviews from last month’s NRF show in New York City, our Editor talks with Gary Barraco of ecVision about supply chain transparency, sustainability, and the future of collaborative materials management.

Ben Hanson: Firstly, how has the show been for you, and do you think the trends you see here are indicative of trade shows in general?

Gary Barraco (pictured far right):

I like to tell everyone that these kinds of shows really mirror the industry as a whole. So here on the expo floor, we’re a supply chain solution provider, and the focus is not really on us. The focus for the attendees this year is on retailing, and all of the aspects of customer experience, including how to deliver the right products into the hands of the consumer.

Our role, instead, lies in getting those products from design to receipt into the warehouse and the store. So although we do play an important role in the process of getting things to retail, we haven’t seen the traffic for supply chain buyers like we did last year.
