Apr 29, 2008

LOGAN, UTAH � April 28, 2008 � Inovar Inc., an inthinc Company and a leading contract electronics manufacturer (CEM) dedicated to providing flexible solutions to OEMs in the fastest growing segments of the electronic industry, announces that it coordinated the Salt Lake Chapter of APICS Professional Development Meeting and Dinner from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on April 24, 2008 at Hilton Garden Inn in Salt Lake City, Utah. The meeting was very well attended and provided worthwhile information about global outsourcing.

The meeting focused on the Shifting Landscape of Global Outsourcing. Today�s products are smaller, faster and lighter and operate on networks that are more cost-effective, offer higher levels of functionality and are far more integrated. But you already know this as you work in high-tech, where change � especially the change brought on by innovation � defines your professional life. But did you notice that the global landscape from which the majority of these high-tech products are sourced is currently rumbling at about a 7.0 on the Rictor Scale?

Author of The Global Pricing Methodology and the Outsourcing Navigator, Charlie is a private equity investor and provides thought and leadership to the global electronics industry.
