The Supply Chain Buzz for March 13: Digital Transformers Edition featuring Michael Pytel with Fulfilld

The Supply Chain Buzz is Supply Chain Now’s regular Monday livestream, held at 12n ET each week. This show focuses on some of the leading stories from global supply chain and global business, always with special guests – the most important of which is the live audience!

This week’s Digital Transformers edition of The Buzz included hosts Scott Luton, Greg White, and Kevin L. Jackson, as well as special guest Michael Pytel, co-founder and CTO at Fulfilld. Michael has over 15 years’ experience supporting large enterprise manufacturing and whole distribution organizations. He is passionate about blending the unique strengths of humans and automation – something that came across clearly in this conversation.

In this livestream, created in collaboration with a live Supply Chain Now audience, Michael, Scott, Greg, and Kevin discussed:

• Cash flow management advice for tech founders (and investors) in the growing shadow of Silicon Valley Bank

• Why business processes – and not ‘robots’ – might be to blame if your digital transformation or automation project falls short of expectations

• The amazing agility of third-party logistics providers that is taking fulfillment to the next level – despite the products being shipped
