Activant, a developer of comprehensive enterprise software solutions, held its annual Summit Conference in Las Vegas, March 21-24. The annual event, strictly for wholesale distribution customers, encouraged networking opportunities among different distributors to share ideas on how to improve their business. A schedule of classes also provided a time for breakout sessions, which included demonstrations on Activant Prophet 21™ (formerly CommerceCenter), B2B Seller, wireless warehouse and online idea exchanges. Throughout the Summit, attendees were also invited to interact with a variety of software options and services directly on-site at Activant's Technology Center.
Steve McLaughlin, senior vice president and general manager of Activant's wholesale distribution group, welcomed more than 1,200 guests at the general session. McLaughlin told SUPPLY HOUSE TIMES he's excited to be working with such a dynamic group. “It's been non-stop, going out and visiting customers in all the different market segments. I hear and watch things happen business-wise on the warehouse side, and it's huge. We've sold a lot of warehouse management units. In fact we're demo-ing the Wireless Warehouse Management Solution here at the Tech Center.”
