Supply Chain Execution

Global supply chain execution (SCE) leader EXE Technologies(R), Inc. (Nasdaq:EXEE) announced that industry luminary Richard N. Foster of McKinsey & Company — one of the most renowned strategists in the field of innovation and business performance — will be the keynote presenter at EXsite 2002 — EXE’s international user conference to be held October 2-4 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at Reunion Tower in Dallas. Among the featured speakers confirmed are: Peter Foxton, chief executive of the Defence Storage & Distribution Agency which serves the logistics needs of the British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force; and Fred Housman, vice president of distribution for Hy-Vee, Inc.

This year’s conference theme is “Because Execution = Everything!” Fittingly, EXsite 2002 represents the ideal opportunity and venue for EXE’s global customers and partners to come together in a single location for two days to learn, network, and share information in the key areas of supply chain execution: decision support, physical execution, collaboration, and optimization.

“Today, it’s critical for companies to get the most value out of every dollar invested in their supply chain and supporting IT infrastructure,” said Ray Hood, EXE’s chairman and chief executive officer. “This requires tried-and-true supply chain execution and network management solutions that enable companies to protect existing investments and resources while, at the same time, increasing efficiencies and reducing costs at every step along the way. That’s the primary focus of EXsite 2002, precisely why this year’s theme is so relevant.”
