Open for Business with Jeff Brown, Supply Chain Expert: Solutions for a Crisis and Beyond

What's Inside

Part of the Coresight Research & Blue Yonder Open for Business webinar series, we present the transcript from our conversation with Jeff Brown, President of NFI Industries and supply chain expert, on April 22, 2020. As business leaders are managing their companies through the coronavirus crisis, we are working to stay engaged with, and facilitate an open dialogue for, companies of all sizes. This webinar offered insights into the shape of demand during the current coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to detailing how his firm has adapted to better suit the needs of its clients, Brown discussed the following key topics:

  • The challenges in the supply chain presented by the Covid-19 outbreak and the innovations used to combat them
  • Shortcomings in technology that have been made apparent during this crisis
  • Adjustments to customer and employee interactions that define the “new normal”
  • Forecasts for the remainder of 2020 and the preparations that retailers are making for the holiday season
  • The impact of current market conditions on NFI’s efforts to become more climate-conscious

In addition, we reviewed responses from webinar attendees to a live poll around supply chain technologies. A Q&A session also prompted conversation around the transformation of department stores, data transparency and inventory management.
