PRODUCT/SOLUTIONS SPOTLIGHT: Improving the End-User Experience

Sebastian Titze, marketing manager at MHI member BEUMER Corporation and CSS co-vice chair, is proud of the efforts CSS is taking to strengthen end-user focus. “CSS re-aligned its strategy over the past year, redefining its mission and vision to clearly reflect the end-user focus,” Titze said. “Having invited end-users to our spring and annual meetings, CSS gained valuable knowledge about the needs and demands of companies that currently are using automation technology or that are growing so fast that scalable processes and operations are required in order to be competitive in their respective markets.”

The four-year industry veteran feels CSS will continue to be the voice for leading companies in the conveying and sortation space. “The group’s main objective is the education of the market about the newest technologies and solutions for problems around the handling of itemized materials in warehouses,” he said. “Therefore, end-users can reach out via the website or other channels in future if they just want to learn or have specific questions. The safe-harbor environment allows anyone who gets in touch to utilize the experience and knowledge from within the group without being pressured to buy any specific solution. CSS is interested in providing the best value for end-users independently from any company specific products or developments.”

Transportation plays a central role in supply chains, whether they are local or global enterprises. And just like the overall supply chain, transportation is facing a digital revolution including new solutions for tracking road, rail, sea and air freight and parcel transportation. These digital technologies are disrupting the industry, but they are also providing im-portant new solutions for transportation inefficiencies and urban logistics challenges. They are also creating new digital business models that enhance transparency and sustainability and contribute to end-to-end supply chain visibility. Like the innovations impacting supply chains, these trends are being driven by the growth of e-commerce and the consumers’ never-ending need for better, faster and cheaper. Ignoring them is done at your own peril.
