After being selected as one of only nineteen technology firms to join RILA’s RTech Startup Network, Evansville based Quarion Technology has been asked to present to the Retail Safety executives at their fall annual committee meeting being held this year at the Walgreens Corporate headquarters in Deerfield, Illinois.
With real-time location safety functionality and the ability to deliver improved operational efficiency, Evansville’s Quarion Technology won over management of the Retail Industry Leaders Association to be selected as one of nineteen companies nationwide to join their RTech Startup Network. The RTech Startup Network, an initiative of RILA’s Innovation Center (RIC), was created to generate a stronger connection between the startup ecosystem and retail senior executives. With Quarion’s real-time location technology, RILA not possesses a technology partner capable of delivering innovative technology for its member’s supply chains, specifically in warehousing and distribution center operation and management. This aligns with the RIC’s emphasis on finding technology that meets member’s needs in asset protection, compliance, supply chain, and workforce protection.
Safety Technology “Speed Dating” at the annual meeting of the RILA Workplace Safety Committee.
As a member of the RTech Startup Network, Quarion is invited to present to the annual meeting of the RILA Workplace Safety Committee being held at the headquarters of Walgreens in Deerfield, Illinois on October 29 and 30. This year’s presentation will take the form of a
series of seven minutes “speed dating” style presentations to groups composed of the thirty-five safety executives who represent familiar retailers such as Target, Meijer, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Costco, Walgreens, Advanced Auto Parts and many others. This format allows each of the Startup Network participants the opportunity to interact one-on-one with safety executives in order to match their technology and services with the operational needs of the retailers. Many past participants have gone on to receive technology development and implementation contracts following the annual Workplace Safety Committee event.
