To all detectives in training…AFS Technologies recently announced its 2013 Industry Conference will take place March 24-26 at the stunning Montelucia Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley, Arizona. This year’s Sherlock Holmes-inspired event affords manufacturers, distributors, sales agencies, logistics providers, and operations personnel the opportunity to investigate a variety of emerging technology solutions and gather insights on the latest trends impacting the supply chain communities. Like the good detective, the suite of software solutions powered by AFS are programmed to reveal the truth about business processes, restore order by analyzing clues, and reveal actionable insights from even the smallest data observations.

As the Food & Beverage and CPG Retail industry continues to seek greater automation and analysis capabilities through technology, AFS Technologies offers access to new solutions that complements existing systems, innovative options to address developing business needs and additional best practices to compete even more effectively in the marketplace.

In addition to keynote presentations by Bill Hale and Phil Lempert (aka The Supermarket Guru®), the two-day Conference will feature idea-sharing track sessions and panel discussions focused on best practices for TPM, mobility solutions, business intelligence and supply chain productivity.  A variety of informative seminars will cover direct store delivery, enterprise solutions, data synchronization, and collaborative commerce for foodservice and retail packaged goods. In addition, attendees will have unprecedented access to the AFS support and services team during one-on-one “Ask the Experts” consultations.

Registration for the 2013 AFS Conference is officially open. To learn more about early bird deadlines, hotel accommodations, and the preliminary schedule of agenda topics and activities, visit
