How technology can help safeguard stock

Businesses cannot afford to lose stock due to equipment failure or human error. It is not only the cost of the stock but the opportunity cost that is at risk and sometimes even reputational risk.

Join Shawn McKellar, Technology Strategist at PGG Wrightson on our next Spark Spotlight webinar as he discusses their journey of implementing a stock monitoring solution into their business, from Proof of Concept to Pilot to Production. Shawn will also describe lessons learnt, in particular change management with the team.

Joining Shawn will be Leo Ovshtein, Product Owner for Spark IoT Bridge. Leo will discuss how IoT can help solve problems you may not even be aware of and how to get the most out of a solution to drive change in your business.

This webinar was recorded on Thursday 22 June 2023.
