PathGuide Technologies recently wrapped up its 2014 User Conference in Seattle, WA. The conference was attended by users of the Latitude Warehouse Management System, as well as PathGuide’s prospective customers and partner firms like Honeywell.
The conference kicked off on September 21 with an exciting keynote address by Michael Allosso, a Boston-based director and actor who delivered an interactive presentation entitled, “You on Your Best Day.” And despite Seattle’s rainy reputation, attendees enjoyed a sunlit Argosy dinner cruise along the Seattle waterfront during one of PathGuide’s client networking events.
“Providing our customers and prospects a social setting to share their own perspectives about opportunities in their respective distribution businesses is really key to the success of our annual conference,” explains PathGuide CEO Eric Allais. “We always put a high priority on intra-client communications, in addition to our Conference’s other educational opportunities. Our customers know that they can always get a true assessment of PathGuide’s products and services from one another, and that’s why we provide the venue and time for this rich information exchange.”
“It’s one thing to hear from PathGuide about the benefits of using Latitude WMS,” commented Andy Marble, Information Manager at Horizon Distribution, “but it’s more impressive to hear users explain how they transformed their warehouses using the program.”
Executives and Directors from mid to large distribution companies shared strategies, best practices, and insight into how warehouse management technology helps to grow their operations.
PathGuide’s customers range from medium-sized, single-warehouse distributors to distribution giants, and cover many sectors, including food/beverage, medical supplies, HVAC, safety products, industrial/MRO and electrical supplies, and retail distributors.

- Hands-on training
