Webcast on Offshoring for Retailers


vLinx, which sells a Web-based product for managing offshore outsourcing, is hosting a free Webcast with Aberdeen Group analyst Paula Rosenblum, titled, “Sourcing for innovation.” The focus is on the retail industry. The online talk takes place November 10 at 11 a.m. Pacific time. According to the press release, “The conference offers managers, users and decision makers in the retail industry the benefit of Paula\’s insight into how effective organizational structures, procedures and technology usage in offshore sourcing can lead to gross margin improvements of 20% or more.” Don\’t know how much the discussion will be on the IT aspects, but since Aberdeen targets technology research, I\’m guessing it\’ll cover a lot of ground there.
