  • How IoT Continues to Modernizing the Oil and Gas Industry

    Kyle DeWitt, Vice President, Technical Service

    Last year, we reported on some of the new and exciting IoT-based opportunities that have come about in the oil and gas industry.

  • The In-Person and the Click-and-Collect Grocery Shopper: The Importance of Building an Infrastructure to Please Both

    Brenda McCurry, Vice President, Supplier Services, POS and Barcode at ScanSource and Karen Bomber, Director of Marketing, Productivity Products at Honeywell

    Think about the last time you bought groceries. If you’re like most Americans, chances are high that it looked different than the way your parents used to shop.
