Remote WMS Implementations - COVID-19 – Kong Case Study Discussion 
Thursday October 8th, 12:40 PM - 1:30 PM ET.

When the coronavirus travel bans took effect in early 2020, Generix Group had several large-scale WMS projects scheduled to go-live. Delaying was not an option. In this presentation our General Manager, Philippe Gautrin, will illustrate how our team met this challenge head-on via fully remote implementations. 


  • Collaboration strategies deployed 
  • Project management tools leveraged (many unique to our WMS itself) 
  • Actual results of Kong and other go-lives in distribution and manufacturing operations
