Manufacturing Software Experts Announce Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Software Experts Announce Manufacturing Day

Today is Manufacturing Day! Celebrate with Clients First Business Solutions

As manufacturing software consultants, our team is excited to join manufacturing leaders and businesses from around the nation to celebrate Manufacturing Day today. Friday, October 2, 2020 is the official date but Manufacturing Day is celebrated all month nationwide with local and online events. Click here to register for an event.

Manufacturing Day started in 2012 by the non-profit Manufacturing Institute (MI) which is a part of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Manufacturers across the country have the opportunity to showcase their operation in a way they see appropriate inviting the their schools, companies, their educators, legislators etc. to witness modern manufacturing and the value manufacturing offers the community.

The goal of Manufacturing Day is to share modern best practices and technology to help manufacturers modernize operations today and prepare for the future. It's critical for modern manufacturers to find and train skilled workers. By 2029, MI estimates there will be a shortage of skilled labor with around 4.6 million job openings. Manufacturing Day is one effort to get the U.S. workforce excited about the manufacturing sector as an attractive career path. 

The U.S. has been a global leader in manufacturing. Our innovation in technology effects factory floors around the world. Innovation and production go hand in hand, hence there is a high demand for skilled workers with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills. The gap is widening between finding the skilled workers required to maintain the innovation to gain momentum. This is why celebrating Manufacturing Day and finding skilled workers using these types of events is crucial to the growth of the manufacturing sector.

As manufacturing consultants, we believe in leveraging technology. We help manufacturers modernize their manufacturing systems and processes with ERP solutions by Microsoft like Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply and Acumatica manufacturing software. Celebrate Manufacturing Day with the manufacturing software experts at Clients First Business Solutions!

Why do manufacturers work with Clients First manufacturing software consultants?

We help you modernize your manufacturing software to maximize manufacturing operations efficiency and profitability. Clients First understands that each type of manufacturing operation (discrete and process, job shops or ETO/MTO) has unique requirements they need out of a modern manufacturing software solution. Also, within each company there even more unique business processes between departments and individual job functions. Choosing a trusted partner that understands your industry and your budget should be the first step in your manufacturing ERP software search.

  1. Industry expertise and experience - We have multiple Senior-level personnel that have 200+ years combined experience with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software. Our experience helps produce faster implementations, thus less technical interruptions, as we do not learn the software on our clients time.
  2. Team approach - Our team consists of consultants who specialize in Finance, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, MRO, Job shop and Projects. We pull in the right specialists to help get you where you need to go.
  3. Formulated and proven implementation methodology - We save your company time and money with employee and customer portals to track your budget, timeline and task tracking. We have options for flexible application deployment in addition to on-premise, cloud or hybrid (a mix of on-premise and cloud) software installation.
  4. ERP software implementation project management - You get an assigned Project Manager and a Senior Consultant to manage your implementation. We handle multi-site/multi-country implementations, if needed.
  5. Training and Support - If requested, we offer Technical Mentoring for your team through initial and on-going maintenance, training & support.
  6. Customer references - Our strong references with long-time customers from Manufacturing, MRO, and Services industries represent our dedication and passion to helping our clients. Here's one:

    “Who you pick will make or break your implementation, they have got to know the program inside and out and have business sense, this is what you get with Clients First. We challenged them, pushing them to implement the latest Acumatica version and didn’t charge me for learning on my dime and that was fantastic. We made them better and they made us better which makes for a really nice partnership.” Derrick Elledge - VP of Operations – Power Storage Solutions

We represent the following solutions for the small, mid-sized and enterprise manufacturing organization:

Clients First will work with you to help evaluate the right solution for your manufacturing and business needs.

Clients First also has a strong team of developers and has developed intellectual property or IP for Dynamics and Acumatica.
