Wrapping up the week, we wanted to reflect on some of the emerging technologies and interesting companies we met at ProMat 2015 in Chicago. This is by no means a comprehensive review of the 800+ vendors who exhibited at the event. Below are a few vendors that we wanted to mention because they fit into our vision of what the future looks like. In alphabetical order:
Blue Violet Systems
Blue Violet Systems is pioneering an impressive technology stack for supply chain analytics. Their technology allows companies to query video that is matched up with transactional data. The technical details aside, this is a truly innovated use of technology to offer unparalleled visibility to processes and product. Applications include use cases such as monitoring loading processes, investigating exceptions during MHE handling, and providing mobile visibility to deliveries, including deliver exceptions.
