Top 5 Reasons to Register!

Come with questions. Leave with answers.

REASON #1: Going, going, gone!

Borrow money from a pessimist if you have to. He won’t expect it back. You only have through July 21 to take advantage of discounted registration rates.

REASON #2: Like-minded people will be there.

Actually, the criteria for other like-minded people is different for everyone. But, as a Latitude product user, whether your learning style is hands-on, one-on-one consulting, through user-led panels or product demos – the folks at PathGuide have you covered.

REASON #3: Location, location, location.

Never mind that our state flower is mildew, this year’s venue screams Pacific Northwest. Cedarbrook Lodge is conveniently 5 minutes from the airport and sits on 11 lush acres, all privately surrounded by beautifully restored wetlands.

REASON #4: A smorgasbord of stimulants.

We can name 3 without even thinking about it: keynote, coffee and magician. Because you deserve better than ordinary.

REASON #5: Record-breaking attendance.

Last year’s attendance numbers were the highest we’ve seen. Go on, register today and be the difference that contributes to the overall vibe of this fantastic event!

Register now to guarantee yourself a room and discounted rate. Book your hotel reservations by calling 206-429-4197 or clicking here. Our group booking code is PATH.

Whether it’s hands-on training, user-led panels, one-on-one consulting, or a demonstration, don’t miss the chance to further your Latitude WMS education and knowledge. This is a great opportunity to meet up with Latitude product peers who’ve taken the same journey on the quest towards warehouse excellence.

Here’s what a few of last year’s attendees had to say:

“I found the conference to be both educational and fun. We were able to walk away with 6-8 possible improvement opportunities that came as a result of the sessions, one-on-one consulting time and from other users. Just one of those ideas can justify the time and expense of the conference.”

“It was a very fulfilling and insightful experience, and offered a great opportunity for team-building while learning about parts of Latitude that I hadn’t known about before.”

“I highly recommend attending the PathGuide conference. We were able to separate ourselves from the day to day, and take a step back and look at our processes objectively and come up with ideas for improvements. We were also able to plan and obtain great ideas for the future growth of our company.”

Douglas Hunter Elected Chairman of PathGuide’s Latitude Advisory Board

A hearty welcome aboard to Douglas Hunter, who was elected chairman of the Latitude Advisory Board (LAB) at our Latitude User Conference in May. Douglas is the operations manager at Colorado-based Eldorado Trading Company, where he oversaw the Latitude WMS rollout at its distribution facility.  Since then, he has been an active member of the Latitude Advisory Board. He’s a strong advocate for using technologies to solve warehouse problems and for continuously improving processes. In fact, we profiled Doug as our first warehouse champion many years ago. We’re excited to work more closely with him as he brings a new voice and energy to the LAB.

Roy Bragg will be stepping down as chairman after several years of service but will remain active as a board member. Roy is VP of operations at Canadian electronics distributor EB Horsman & Son and has been a great guiding voice for the board. Many thanks to Roy for his leadership during a critical growth period and we look forward to more of his keen insight for Latitude as we work to make the product even better.

The LAB is a user-led group of Latitude enthusiasts based in the U.S. and Canada. They give PathGuide feedback based on their experiences gained from working with Latitude WMS in their warehouses and distribution centers. Insight from the board directly shapes PathGuide’s training programs and product enhancements, and members often serve as beta testers for software updates. These members represent a wide range of industries. For more about the LAB and a list of current members, look here.

Sessions like Replenishment: Stay Stoked Because You’re Stocked and Dock Wars: Scheduling Inbound Deliveries will inspire new techniques to drive success across your warehouse teams.
  • Corporate Executives: Network with other executives, exchange ideas about supply chain excellence and learn how Latitude WMS can help inspire innovation and deliver better customer service as the supply chain continues to evolve. Sessions for executives include Motivation by Metrics, Leveraging Latitude WMS for ROI in Your Operations and Latitude WMS for Your Smaller Facilities.
  • Warehouse Workers: You’re the ones using Latitude every day, so the more you know – the better. Hands-on sessions for warehouse workers include Make an RF “Easy Button” With Task Definitions, Be in the Know With Automatic Alerts and Labels Made Easy.
  • IT Pros: Learn about Latitude’s evolving tool set and programmable features while networking with other field experts. Sessions for IT Pros include What’s Your IT IQ?, WMS & LMS Release Highlights, Metrics: A Window into Your Warehouse, and Latitude Confidential: Next Level Tips & Tricks.

More importantly, you will have plenty of opportunities to get realistic feedback and advice from current Latitude WMS users. Come with questions and leave with answers!

Dr.’s Gerry Faust and David Allais to Keynote PathGuide’s 2016 Latitude User Conference

It is my great pleasure to announce that Gerry Faust, Ph.D. and David Allais, Ph.D. will deliver the two keynote addresses at the 2016 Latitude User Conference in May.

Faust is a highly accomplished business consultant and motivational speaker who has been empowering and entertaining audiences for 30 years. His speeches help people understand the power and challenges of an organization’s culture, identify its key aspects and understand the role each person plays in its formation. He is hilariously funny, extremely smart, and his speeches deliver real business value. Past clients have said that Faust “provides stimulating ideas with practical approaches,” is a “consummate presenter,” and a “guy who truly cares about helping businesses succeed.”

His program will explain the true purpose for organizations and outline the four roles that managers and leaders must embrace to achieve short and long term success. In a presentation tailored to the needs of the warehouse and distribution industries, Gerry Faust will discuss the biggest reason why more organizations never solve their problems, and the key role teamwork plays in achieving organizational goals.

Allais is an internationally recognized expert and inventor in the fields of bar coding, automatic identification and data capture. As former president and CEO of Washington-based Intermec, Inc. (now part of Honeywell), he built the company from a small start-up into the leading manufacturer of bar code scanning and printing equipment. Leaving Intermec after 19 years, Allais founded PathGuide Technologies, a Washington-based developer of warehouse management systems for distributors.

PathGuide is thrilled to have Faust and Allais as our keynote speakers. Mark your calendars for May 22-24, this is one conference you won’t want to miss!

Faust’s keynote is scheduled Monday, May 23 at 8:45 a.m. and Allais’s keynote is scheduled for Tuesday, May 24 at 8:30 a.m.
