As 2021 winds down, our team is heads down focused on the upcoming Specification Management Summit, Jan. 18-20th in Austin, Tx.

We are so excited to see many of you in person, for the first time in a long time. The team is putting together an amazing lineup of industry thought leadership, best practices, case studies, product innovation and more.If you haven’t registered, now is a great time. Here’s a preview of some of the content we have planned.

Why Data in the New Corporate Currency

The world is changing rapidly – and companies that embrace change will win. Join Tony Costa, CIO, Bumble Bee Foods, for an informative presentation on the importance of aggregating, integrating, and acting upon your data to stay ahead of consumer trends and better manage supply chain challenges. When it comes to initiatives around sustainability and social responsibility, technology is outpacing standards and regulations. Is your business prepared to be nimble and adjust to new norms? You'll learn how data visibility, integration, and collaboration can not only boost your business, but have a positive impact on consumers – and even the world.

Making Sustainability Initiatives a Reality vs. Just a Goal

As we look to 2025, sustainable packaging goals are becoming harder to achieve putting increased emphasis on the need to drive innovation and adopt tools to help us deliver business outcomes. Another factor impacting how we need to think about, and address sustainability is the continued evolution and adoption of Packaging EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) legislation. In this session, Gartner analyst John Blake will discuss key trends and how organizations need to think differently about the resulting challenges and opportunities.

Lessons from a Digital Transformation: How We Modernized our Supply Chain with Specright

How can you help your operators be more efficient and reduce errors when you have millions of packaging specs to manage, along with communicating with thousands of suppliers? You don't just implement a new system, you transform processes. Join, Darrin Maue, Packaging Manager, Caterpillar, to learn how they've been able to increase throughput and reduce errors, while also addressing workforce challenges with a digital, spec-first approach.

Why Specs are the Fuel for Your Business (And How You Can Upload Data Faster with Spec Squad)

Many companies are managing their specs on the fly, with no long-term strategy or resources to manage or transition. Just like how cars can't run without fuel, companies can't run efficiently without up-to-date, accurate specs. Hear from Eric Norman, Partner, Dazmii, on his real-world experience as a Packaging Engineer and Consultant implementing a "spec-first" approach at leading companies like Conagra. You'll also learn how you can onboard spec data faster (and with less resources) by leveraging Spec Squad, a team of professionals managing data onboarding. We’ll be continuing to add more content on our event webpage, so make sure to check back to learn more. Registration closes Tuesday, Dec. 14th, so don’t miss out on your chance to truly learn about and embrace a “spec-first” approach to specification management. Hope to see you in Austin!
