Two Essent representatives are scheduled to speak at the 2018 PPAI Technology Summit.
President & CEO Eric Alessi joins a panel on what to consider when choosing a software provider or consultant. "Swiping Left or Right When Choosing a Software/Consulting Partner” identifies criteria to consider for a relationship that works.
Essent Vice President of Research Stephen Luisser, an award-winning technologist and integration expert, is part of a session on cloud computing trends in the promotional products industry, joining David Jackson of Sweda, Paul Fleischman of PCNA, and moderator David Shultz of Distributor Central.
As more and more companies move more and more of their infrastructure to the cloud, the session looks at some of the options, what has worked, and what hasn't worked.
Additionally, Mr. Luisser and Essent Business Development Manager Marco Peña are speaking at the PromoStandards integration workshop that's co-locating at the Tech Summit.
Mr. Peña is part of a panel for people new to PromoStandards. The panel covers what it’s like to get started and the Dos and Don’ts of integration. The session is intended to generally help those less familiar with PromoStandards become more familiar and get started.
Mr. Luisser meanwhile is presenting on the latest PromoStandards offerings. PromoStandards recently created and is finalizing the framework for distributors, decorators, and suppliers to share Purchase Orders and Invoices automatically and in real-time.
PromoStandards is a group of distributors, suppliers, and service providers dedicated to improving supply chain efficiency in the promotional products industry through trading partner integration, which allows business information to be shared automatically and in real-time instead of slowly and manually by phone and email.
The PPAI Technology Summit, sponsored by Essent, is a forum for top-of-mind technology issues, challenges, best practices, and more in the promotional products industry today.
