Nearly twice as many manufacturers are more worried that customers will increase factory orders than they are about sales going down – the clearest sign yet that the chaotic market conditions of the past three years are persisting and we’re nowhere near back to business as usual.   

Rootstock’s massive survey of manufacturers, the “North America Manufacturing ERP Survey,” shows how stressed companies continue to be with top concerns centered around personnel, production levels and disruption.  

And companies are turning to ERP and other software systems to alleviate that pressure. Nearly 75% of manufacturers plan to significantly expand software spending this year with about one-third of those looking at double-digit spending boosts. Staying competitive in that market is going to demand a deep understanding of what technologies are available and how to embrace them without spending too much, shutting down production or tapping into computer science professionals that manufacturers struggle to recruit.  

Join us May 18 at 1 p.m. (eastern) to hear from robotics manufacturing giant Boston Dynamics about their software-driving digital transformation and benchmark your technology spend efforts against your peers.  

Attendees will learn: 

  • Most manufacturers think they’re ahead of the curve, technologically, or way ahead of the curve. They can’t all be right! 
  • Where companies plan to invest their software budgets in the near future. 
  • How to overcome the IT/OT divide that’s become a bigger barrier to getting things done in manufacturing. 
  • Future-proofing your technology infrastructure. It’s a top priority for many of your peers.
