Barcoding’s 2nd Annual Executive Forum – A Huge Success!

Yesterday, Aug. 20, 2012, marked the 2nd Annual Executive Forum: Accelerating the Supply Chain with Barcoding and RFID. The forum, held at the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbot Camden Yards, was a half-day event hosted by Barcoding, Inc., in conjunction with Motorola Solutions, Zebra Technologies and Verizon. The forum’s primary goal was to show supply chain executives how to be more efficient accurate and connected with mobile technology throughout the enterprise.

Keynote speaker Clint Lange, Director of Process Engineering for Iron Mountain, kicked-off the day with a presentation discussing lessons learned from implementing and standardizing mobile applications and devices within the enterprise, focusing on the importance of selecting, managing and refreshing hardware.

After the keynote address, Russell Goodman, editor-in-chief at SupplyChainBrain, led the discussion on “Challenges with BYOD and Consumer vs. Rugged Devices,” featuring Martin Jack (CTO, Barcoding), Bruce Willins (Senior Director of Technical Solutions Group, Motorola Solutions), and Matthew Montgomery (Director, Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Verizon). Topics included personal devices within the enterprise and the security issues and challenges faced by internal IT departments.

Then, the topic of discussion moved to “Mobile Device Management: from Smart Phones to Rugged Devices,” with Ron Wilson, director of North America sales, SOTI; “Wireless Security – Is Your Network Secure and Optimized?” with Jay McKibbin, Wireless LAN Account Executive, Motorola Solutions; and “Growing Power of RFID in Asset Management,” with McLeod Williamson, RFID Business Development Manager, Zebra Technologies. Between each of the topics, attendees met and greeted representatives from Barcoding Inc. and partners, in addition to participating in demonstrations from some of the latest technologies for the warehouse and fleet.

Barcoding, Inc.’s VP of sales, Shane Snyder, thanked attendees and sponsors, stating, “The industry is evolving, making events such as this necessary. Last year, ‘BYOD’ wasn’t even mentioned. Rather, we focused on ‘mobility.’”
