Frontline Thoughts …

I stopped by the Frontline Conference and Expo in Chicago this week, hoping to gain insights into the intersection of supply chain management and Spend Management. Unfortunately, the event was a bit in the trenches with a deep focus on RFID and warehouse management, offering little to tie supply chain issues to broader business and Spend Management ones. I did have a little fun putting on my "geek hat" by digging into inventory and tracking technology, such as Ekahau’s WIFI inventory tags and associated software which enables companies to pinpoint the exact position of an item within a warehouse that has at least 3 wireless access points. Cool stuff, but not exactly relevant to Spend Management, at least at this stage of the game.
