  1. What would be recommended for someone looking for a WMS software system? I thought CSCPM was good but am wondering if there is a conference dedicated strictly to such systems.


    • I’d recommend WERC or supplier specific shows like the ones Manhattan Associates, JDA, Oracle’s supply chain show, SAP’s supply chain show, and HighJump.
