APAC Supply Chain Professionals Gathered for 1st Gravity Community Day in Hong Kong
HONG KONG – November 1st, 2017 – Sixty professionals in the supply chain and logistics industry and investors from across the Asia Pacific region gathered for the first ever Gravity Community Day on Friday, October 13th, 2017. The event was hosted at Mettā, the entrepreneurs’ club in Hong Kong and brought together the company’s users, customers, partners, prospects and investors for an afternoon of information sharing.
“It was a great opportunity to meet colleagues from the entire supply chain, who utilize Gravity’s software. The event opened my eyes to Gravity features that other participants seek, whilst we had not even considered those. I left with connections as well as great ideas of how we can create further value for our customers through the Gravity platform,” said Jan Skovgaard, CEO Asia Pacific, Röhlig Logistics.
The event started with the Gravity CEO, Graham Parker and COO, Darren Palfrey introducing the main challenge the company set out to solve. “It was clear that the audience grasped the challenge that we are all facing – removing friction from the supply chain. The key to addressing this issue is being able to see what’s happening in your supply chain – visibility. Visibility provides you with control and certainty. And only once you have visibility, can you start to really fix the points of friction that exist in your operations,” said Gravity CEO, Graham Parker.
The afternoon also included a customer testimonial from Ole Sander, Managing Director, Greater China, Röhlig Logistics and a walkthrough of the Gravity platform product roadmap.
“I attended as a customer and found their concepts around “frictionless” supply chain very insightful. It was interesting to understand in more detail the journey to date and the future direction of the business. During networking, it was valuable to share success stories with other customers, and current and future investors,” said Simon McKnight, International Supply Chain Director, Advanced Supply Chain Group.
Gravity will host future events similar to this in the future. “The feedback we received from the event has been extremely positive. The highlight for attendees was pretty clear – we brought together people from different industries – retailers, manufacturers, logistics providers, finance and the investment community – to share their stories,” said Stephanie Johnson, Head of Marketing & Growth. “In the future, we will look to get more detailed with our talking points, incorporate more live demos into the event and more customer testimonials that go into greater detail – sharing their experiences about challenges that Gravity has helped them overcome.”
