Snapshot of Sessions/Topics

Product Roadmap

The BROWZ 2016 Client Summit included the introduction of BROWZ OneView, a significant development in the evolution of supply chain management software. At the upcoming BROWZ Client Summit, the product roadmap for 2018 will be released as well as new apps, features, tools, and tricks. 

Best Practices

What are you doing well and where can you improve? Where are others having success and what are the best practices in your industry? These are important questions to benchmark your program and continually improve your processes. Topics to be discussed at the summit will include: why manage contractors, auditing, integrating into the procurement process, learning from the contractor's perspective, tips and tricks with BROWZ OneView and much more. 

Peer Learning

The Client Summit is intentionally designed to give you face-to-face time with your peers allowing you to ask real world questions about the problems you're facing. The vast majority of our sessions and topics are presented by BROWZ clients just like yourself. Throughout the sessions, ice breakers, meals, mountain activities, evening entertainment, and more, guests will have the opportunity to meet and establish connections with their peers.
