bigstock--179415154-1Canadian SME manufacturers strive to increase profitably while coping with lack of supply chain collaboration, trade war effects, manufacturing skills gap, increased demands from customers, and ever-changing competition. A common hindrance to profitable growth is inefficiencies caused by disconnected systems, manual data entry, paper-based tracking, inaccurate inventory, quality challenges, and non-value added steps in the manufacturing process.
