GERMANTOWN, Tenn. ADN’s Network Information Services (NIS) team recently hosted its third Technology Forum for the group’s member warehouses and manufacturer partners in Irving, Texas, said Mike Lambert, Network president.
“More than 100 information managers from car-care industry manufacturers and distributors gathered for hands-on training and instruction from NIS personnel to gain a thorough understanding of the group’s latest IT solutions,” Lambert said.
During the forum, there were ample opportunities for the Network’s peers manufacturers, distributors and system providers to share information with each other and the NIS team, according to Tom Frey, the Network’s vice president of Information & Technology.
“The focus of the event is training, but the interaction has proven invaluable,” he said. “Many enhancements made to our software and services are a direct result of feedback we received during previous Network Technology Forum events. Hands-on training with our members and vendor partners help ensure a seamless transition with our evolving IT solutions as we strive to reduce the cost of doing business between the Network’s member warehouses and our suppliers.”
