Madison, WI — June 1, 2015 — Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, is pleased to announce its presence as an exhibitor at GS1 Connect 2015. Marking the 15th anniversary of the annual event, this year’s conference takes place at the new JW Marriott in downtown Austin from May 31 to June 4.

GS1 Connect 2015 is a collaborative event where more than 1,000 industry stakeholders, data standards users, and experts gather to share best practices using GS1 Standards and learn about solutions to challenges in the supply chain and electronic data interchange (EDI). Esker will be available at Booth #603 during the conference to discuss how its Order Processing automation solution can transform any order not automatically processed via EDI into an optimized EDI order that can be routed into ERP systems. Esker’s unified platform electronically processes and tracks every order regardless of how they are received  bringing complete visibility across all order formats and reception channels (e.g., email, fax, EDI, XML, etc.), along with accuracy and efficiency to the supply chain. Visitors to Esker’s booth will also have a chance to sign up for a chance to win an Apple iPad. 

“GS1 Connect 2015 is such a compelling conference because of its educational and collaborative nature,” said Steve Smith, U.S. Chief Operating Officer at Esker Americas. “We’re able to hear first-hand about supply-chain and EDI problems people are facing and educate them on — how Esker’s Order Processing solution can automate time-consuming and paper-based workflow, increase data entry accuracy, improve process efficiency based on KPIs, and support regulatory compliance.”
