5. More Than 110 Educational Seminars

We are very excited to be one of the exhibitors at the event this year. It's going to be a great show. Additionally, in case you haven’t seen this yet, PINC has been nominated MHI Innovation Award finalist with our inventory robotics solution.
The MHI Innovation Award serves to educate and provide valuable insights on the latest manufacturing and supply chain products and services. Companies were called to submit a new product, product line, technology or service or new application of existing products or technology that create quantifiable and sustainable results in terms of ROI, cost savings, customer satisfaction, etc.
"We are very thrilled by this nomination. Nothing excites us more at PINC than working on innovative solutions that provide value to our customers and to the supply chain industry as a whole," commented Matt Yearling, PINC's CEO. "Inventory counting and reconciliation are well known challenges at every company I talk to. It's a great honor to help industry leading organizations overcome this popular problem with our technology."
On Monday, April 3, 2017, PINC and finalists will present their unique solutions to a panel of judges on the show floor at ProMat 2017. The winners in each category will be announced at ProMat 2017 on April 5 during the MHI Industry Night.
In addition, Matt will be speaking at two different educational sessions about drones in the supply chain.
Session 1: Drones in the supply chain: What’s the big deal about cycle counting?
Monday, April 03 @ 10:45 am • Location: Autonomous Vehicle Solutions Theater (North Hall)
Session 2: Drones in the supply chain: It’s not all about delivery.
Tuesday, April 04 @ 3:00 pm • Location: Theater C (South Hall)
