Thousands of manufacturers struggle with lack of real-time data causing poor decision making. Too often necessary data cannot be shared throughout the supply chain because systems are not integrated, companies will be left with costly forecast errors. Today's supply chain executives should be able to respond to changes in real-time and use up-to-the minute information to drive intelligent decision making. According to Narayan Laksham, founder of Ultriva, the reality is that each aspect of a manufacturer's supply chain, whether its procurement, design engineering or logistics, often operate in very distinct silos and each department rarely collaborates, shares or even communicates with one another. This error can frustrate customers to decline working with them.

Pcdata USA is capturing a significant share of the small and mid-sized 3PL market. Tier II third-party logistics providers (3PLs) are finding their niche; they come in many shapes and sizes. The "not-too-big and not-too-small" proportions of Tier II 3PLs make them just right for many shippers. Bigger is not always better. Just ask the satisfied customers of 3PLs who not the biggest fish in the pond. So-called Tier II 3PLs generally bring in revenue of less than $250 million annually, and often offer some specialization in mode, vertical, region, or technology that allows them to carve out their own niche. Volumes handled by 3PLs were 100% higher this holiday season. The flexibility of Pcdata USA's Pixk-to-light solutions was recently profiled in Picking Perfection, a weekly e-newsletter. The publication shares methods, modes, and tools used in a variety of industries. The weekly newsletter examines best picking practices.

This is spoiled when a single product is not correctly picked.

Young children have a way of melting even the coldest hearts. Maybe it's their big, wide eyes and even bigger hearts full of innocence that turn grumps into doting grandparents. Maybe it's the adorable way they say whatever pops into their heads, regardless of the jaws dropping all around them. Whatever it is, it's definitely not their sticky hands, inability to get the majority of their food in their mouths, habits of spilling everything within arm's reach, or their haphazard bathroom behaviors. If those thoughts don't make nearly every adult squirm, then imagining those issues multiplied by hundreds should. That's the exact challenge faced by elementary schools everywhere; how could teachers find enough time to nourish those growing minds while cleaning up their dirty disasters? Presenting a solution to that conundrum, Mac's Janitorial Service offers commercial cleaning services to Mercer County, NJ, elementary schools.
