We had a great time meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. AIM continues to put on great events to support the tech community in Omaha. We’re honored to be a part of it and looking forward to next year!

Earlier this morning our President, Nate Watson presented to a group. The group was a part of One Million Cups. If you’re not familiar with them, they are a community based movement to get entrepreneurs together to educate, engage and inspire others and otherwise grow small business.

Contemporary Analysis launched Inventory Batch Tracker earlier this year. The software helps small to medium sized manufacturing facilities to track elements of their manufacturing process. In the event of a recall, they can quickly and accurately generate reports and pull only the protected products.

Inventory Batch Tracker will help companies deal with a few pallets of bad product, rather than several truck loads of bad product. If you haven’t checked out the site visit.

Here’s the live stream from today’s presentation. Or feel free to drop us a line here: Contact Inventory Batch Tracker
