Hamilton, NJ, December 10, 2018 – Voxware, a leading provider of cloud-based voice and analytic supply chain solutions, announced today that it will sponsor and participate in the “Hottest Food Supply Chain Trends 2019” live webinar hosted by Food Logistics magazine, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the food supply chain. This one-hour webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, December 12 at 1:00pm ET and will feature Keith Phillips, President and CEO of Voxware.
Alongside Phillips will be supply chain executives from SAP and Armada. The trends webinars tend to be incredibly popular with Food Logistics readers as they allow for industry thought leaders to weigh in on the hottest trends shaping up for the coming year and what they portend for the industry at large.
“The leading trend for food and beverage companies in 2019 will be a continuation of the well-documented labor shortage,” said Phillips. “The impact of low unemployment will progress to the point of impacting profit margins as companies are forced to increase pay and benefits in order to attract and retain employees. In the coming years, automation in the distribution center is going to become even more critical than in recent years as companies in all industries compete for labor. Between the labor shortage and increasing wages, companies who do not leverage technology to increase efficiency throughout the supply chain will find it increasingly difficult, if not impossible to remain competitive.”
Historically, companies could add more people to make up for inefficiencies, but with unemployment rates hovering in the 3-4% range, labor will continue to be in short supply and companies will face much higher costs than they have in recent years. Through automation, Voxware is able to increase efficiency and productivity while creating a better overall customer experience. Voxware automates all aspects of distribution center operations through its multimodal Voice Management Suite solution. The flexibility of a multimodal solution allows workers to use the best tools for the task and individual.
