Vancouver, BC – October 25, 2016

SYSPRO, a provider of award-winning, best-of-breed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that it will host the first APICS Vancouver 2016 - Supply Chain Strategy Summit, with the Vancouver chapter of APICS. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 2, 2016, at the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre, from 12:30 P.M. – 8:30 P.M. PT.

The afternoon event will explore insightful supply chain industry topics, including best practices and innovation methodologies.

Designed specifically for both supply chain executives and practitioners, the event will host premier thought leadership presentations from prominent industry subject matter experts—in a multi-track format, to best serve the targeted needs and skill levels of the attendees. This event will also provide attendees with invaluable opportunities to network with industry peers and thought leaders.

The sessions will conclude with a special keynote address by renowned industry leader, Carol Ptak, the Co-Founder and Partner of the Demand Driven Institute. The keynote will discuss how to successfully manage and sustain competitiveness, in the wake of rising supply chain variability and volatility. Real-life lessons learned will also be explored with a Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) case study, from a local Canadian biotechnology company.

“We are very excited to bring this informative supply chain innovation and best practices summit to our Vancouver APICS community,” according to APICS Master Instructor, Roberta McPhail. “This inaugural event continues the long tradition of providing leading educational topics to our members, to help them excel in their performance and productivity for their organizations.
