Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP): Every business model has different needs and knowing what you are trying to accomplish can prevent costly mistakes of implementing a system that isn’t right for your business.  This session will explore the differences in ERP, Warehouse Management Systems, and Manufacturing Execution Systems, and help attendees understand what can how they can be used to improve business operations.
