Elemica Focus Group Meeting Hosted by Lora Cecere of Supply Chain Insights

Prioritizing Corporate Supply Chain Initiatives in the Process Industries

EXTON, PA--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2014) - Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network provider for the process industries, is sponsoring a Focus Group titled "Prioritizing Corporate Supply Chain Initiatives" on Sept. 30, 2014, hosted by Lora Cecere, Founder and CEO of Supply Chain Insights. The Focus Group meeting will address a number of topics of interest for supply chain executives, including supply chain risk, B2B social collaboration, and supply chain visibility. Participants will gain keen insights into the evolving goals and challenges within the process industries, particularly as they relate to their Global Supply Chains. The output of this research driven focus group will be an accurate and forward-looking market view.

"The process industries are an extremely competitive environment and companies need to have visibility, flexibility and innovation inherent in their supply chains to grow their competitive edge," said Ed Rusch, Vice President of Corporate Marketing at Elemica. "I'm confident attendees will uncover new and actionable strategies to help create more agile, outside-in, supply chain networks that deliver real market differentiating and financially significant results."

The Focus Group is research driven. Participation requires the completion of a survey conducted by Supply Chain Insights. The survey, "How Effectively Are You Building Supply Chain Business Networks in the Process Industries?" is specifically targeted for leaders in manufacturing and wholesalers/distributors/co-operatives in the process industries only, and is open to those with supply chain leadership, IT, business leadership or corporate social responsibility roles. Focus Group members will receive the research results before they are published and available in the broader market. In addition, participants have the option to schedule a personalized review of the results by phone with a Supply Chain Insights research analyst.
