Would you like to learn how Best-in-Class Canadian manufacturers and distributors manage enterprise resource planning software (ERP) projects to improve operating performance?

Jonathan Gross, ERP analyst and vice-president at IT consultancy Pemeco, is partnering with Manufacturing AUTOMATION to conduct the first annual Benchmark Study: ERP in Canadian Manufacturing and Distribution. Your feedback will be used to develop Best-in-Class procedures for selecting and implementing ERP systems. The results will provide detailed insights into the strategies that Best-In-Class companies use to select, implement and manage their ERP systems. Highlights will be published in the June 2011 issue of Manufacturing AUTOMATION, and full report findings and analysis will be made available to survey respondents.

Whether your company has already implemented an ERP system or is simply evaluating the potential benefits, we would appreciate your feedback in this brief 10-minute survey.

To show our appreciation for sharing your time and thoughts with us, we will provide you with:

1. Complimentary access to the full benchmark report;
2. A chance to win 1 of 10 copies of Pemeco’s book, Milestone Deliverables: The Hands-On Approach to Implementing ERP Projects ($130 value); and
3. A chance to win an ERP and Business Process Audit by Pemeco’s manufacturing, distribution and ERP experts (maximum $10,000 value).

Individual responses will be kept strictly confidential, and data will only be used in the aggregate.

The deadline for the survey is Monday, March 14, 2011.

We look forward to hearing from you, and greatly appreciate your time and participation.
