Innovators create tools to help people get more work done with less effort. Technology has brought us an amazing array of tools over thousands of years. As new innovations improve upon old ones we see a timeline that is really quite amazing. Consider how we listen to music, and how this has evolved over the last 100 years. It went something like this:
Extend your index finger and touch your monitor above where you personally first connected with this timeline. Fast forward and look at us now! Most of us walk around with our entire music collection in our pockets. Now we are beginning to store and stream music from the cloud. Apple just announced its new system called iCloud. Providers like Pandora, LastFM and Grooveshark enable us to create our own radio stations based on sophisticated metrics that we as individuals provide. Imagine that; a radio station that only plays songs that ONLY YOU like!
GPnet does for supply chain management what the internet is doing for streaming music (and other content, for that matter). With operational and marketing budgets being slashed and competition increasing, it is a simple solution to cutting costs and increasing profitability. Enabling your corporate staff and store locations to do more with less is having a profound effect on the success of some of the best brands in America (and the World). I imagine our GPnet clients have more free time to listen to music. What’s next? Perhaps the iBrain: All my music implanted in my head and all I have to do is think of a song I want to listen to. Need to reorder supplies for business? Just iThink it.
