Modern Supply Chain Experience 2018

Eminent had another fun-filled, successful trip to Oracle’s Modern Supply Chain Experience (MSCE) this past week.  We were a Gold Sponsor and a featured presenter this year!



Our very own David Johns co-presented on Tuesday, delivering the Grape to bottle and beyond — G3 Enterprises uses Transportation Management Cloud session.  David, known for his unique blend of humor and vast supply chain and logistics expertise, did not disappoint as he delivered an insightful, but entertaining, outline of G3’s unique project and Eminent’s implementation methodology.


Pizza and beer

Never one to miss an opportunity to blend work with fun, Eminent also hosted a happy hour on Tuesday at Rookies Sports Lodge’s downtown location.  The food and drinks were excellent as was the company!  We had a large turnout this year and appreciate all those that dropped by for a bit of downtime with a side of business.

Thanks for the memories San Jose.  See you again next year!
