Make the Most of Your Manufacturing Workforce:

Why Technology is a Manufacturer's Secret Weapon

Free Educational Discussion

Join us for an exciting and informative panel discussion about how companies like yours can leverage strategy, process, and technology and turn it into your secret weapon for optimal success.

Technology is driving innovation on the shop floor, increasing efficiencies in the workforce, and helping manufacturers retain their best employees. Having the right tools for your team will give you the edge to compete for top talent in a market saturated by competitors and other companies moving into the region.

This panel of experts, including a local manufacturer using technology to improve operations, will cover how to leverage your current workforce more efficiently, what technology can help, and how to leverage both the process and technology to recruit in the local job market. Bring your questions and engage with industry experts as you learn how to use these strategies as your secret weapon.
