Mobile Technology is everywhere.  The pace of its advancement feels exponential.  In some ways, it seems foreign, even intimidating. 


But on June 26, three experts will de-mystify mobile tech for us.  In plain English, we’ll learn the key elements to building a successful mobile tech strategy, where mobile technology can be used to our business advantage, and the personal experiences of what one company went through when deploying a mobile tech solution.


Introducing . . .


Mobile Tech Essentials Explained



Join us on June 26 at 5:00 pm for an evening of
mobile technology and arena football







No worries!  We’re not playing.  We’ll be cheering for the Philadelphia Soul AFTER we learn what it takes to  successfully build and implement a mobile technology solution.


Our evening begins at 5:00 pm with food, drink, and networking.


At 5:30 pm, we’ll have 3 insight-packed primers on what business leaders need to understand about mobile technology  . . .


Topic 1:  Using Mobile Tech to Improve Business Performance


  •  Building the foundation for mobility in your organization
  •  Differentiating between short-term gains and long-term value
  •  Deciding where it makes sense to use a mobile solution
  •  Effectively deploying mobile solutions
  •  Maximizing user adoption through education
  •  Ensuring long-term success for mobility projects


Presenter:  David Gulian, CEO,  Futura Mobility  


Topic 2:  5 Years Forward:  How Mobile Tech Will Evolve and Serve


  • Mobile technology trends and forces changing the way we do business
  • Strategies that have helped companies be more efficient – whether moving assets, working in the field, or improving customer experience
  • Capturing data with mobility;  understanding how that info relates to business transactions
  • Proven mobile solutions that drive workflow and operational efficiencies
  •  Leveraging mobility to create a competitive advantage

Presenter: Bruce Stubbs, Director of Industry Marketing, Honeywell Scanning and Mobility



Topic 3:  AmerisourceBergen Case Study:  Putting Mobile Tech to Work


  •   Why we built a Mobility Center of Excellence first
  •   What building that Center taught us about mobile solutions
  •   Mobile technology “Best Practices” we’ve discovered
  •   An example of “Putting it into Action” and how it worked out

Presenter:  Mike Baca, Director, Mobility Center of Excellence, AmerisourceBergen Corporation.



At around 6:30 PM, we'll take some pictures with Philadelphia's favorite son, Ron Jaworski.  Yes, "Jaws" will be there, ready to chat with us and take selfies with us!  (He's a majority-owner of the Soul.)


After that, we'll walk over to the field.  And I mean the FIELD, not our seats.  We'll be on the field for photographs in front of the GPSEG banner draped on the fence.


Once we’ve wrapped that up, we head to our seats in a PRIVATE CLUB BOX and enjoy the game!  If you’ve never experienced arena football, you’re in for a treat.  The field is smaller and the action is faster and more frenetic.  Scores are higher and you’re never “waiting for something to happen.”


And because this is a free event, sponsored by Honeywell –  the cost for GPSEG members to attend, including the football game, is zero!  It’s all covered.  Just come on out and learn, network, and cheer!


All you need to do is register.  About a week before the event, we’ll email you the specifics on parking and the right entrance to use at the Wells Fargo Center to easily find the Lexus Room where we’ll begin our evening.

Here are the parking and entrance directions --

Please enter the Wells Fargo Center via the Broad Street Gate (A). Using the RIGHT MOST LANE, provide your name to the parking attendant.  Once through, take a right and then continue straight past the Wells Fargo Center to Lot D to park.

Enter the arena through the Southwest doors, at the corner of 95 and Broad Street.  There will be GPSEG signage to identify you’ve found the right entrance.  A registration table will be set up just inside the doors.  Upon check-in, you’ll also receive tickets for that evening's Soul game.  Our program is in the Lexus Room.  And we’ll walk over to our Private Box Suite together when the time comes.

And in case you were wondering, we’re suggesting “relaxed business” attire for the evening.

If you have any questions, just let us know.

See you Friday night!
