OTM SIG 2016

We recently wrapped up another successful OTM SIG conference.  This conference is held annually in Philadelphia in early August, bringing together OTM users and vendors of all backgrounds and expertise levels to share, collaborate and meet with Oracle representatives.

This year Eminent was a Platinum sponsor!  We participated in multiple presentations and round table events, sharing our experiences and know-how to help problem solve and brainstorm fresh ideas.  Our primary presentations involved anecdotes from present clients Sony and SPS regarding their success with Eminent Logistics.  And, in true Eminent fashion, we featured a video of familiar Eminent resources to provide some entertainment value!  We also revealed our new branding at our information booth where we had opportunity to meet a variety of new businesses and discuss our logistics philosophy.

Eminent also hosted our largest SIG happy hour yet!  For two years in a row, we have hosted this event at the beautiful Independence Beer Garden, where guests enjoyed views of the historical Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.  Our guests braved the August heat and humidity and were rewarded with pints, delicious locally inspired hors d’oeuvres, and most importantly lively conversation surrounding current OTM best practices.  Our luckiest guest – Patrick Heelan of PL Developments – won the Eminent drone give away.

We look forward to many more success conferences ahead!
