The interactive presentation will show how technology can help attendees overcome any internal resistance to change and illuminate where improvements can be made, reimagining resets that are more cost effective and socially responsible. Attendees will learn:

  • how to assess current reset processes and identify areas for improvement,
  • to estimate savings in time, labor, and materials, and
  • the significance of the potential improved environmental impact.

Pinkstaff stated, “Social responsibility is not a fad. Brands, retailers, and suppliers alike are looking for ways to implement processes and procedures that have positive, measurable impacts. Improvements in sustainability related to fixture processes can offer constructive environmental impacts, as well as save time, labor, and material costs.”
