Enterprise resource planning (ERP) system implementation can be a complex and costly project for manufacturers. Deployment of these data communications systems will, in almost all cases, require several employees to receive 1-on-1 training from qualified third-party specialists. Fortunately, a significant portion of training costs can be offset with Canadian government grants.
Canadian mall and medium-sized manufacturers can discover how to receive government funding for ERP implementation through an upcoming webinar, Securing Government Funding for your ERP Project. The session will be hosted by Six S Partners, experts in EPICOR ERP business system implementation. During the session, Six S will reveal how implementing or improving the use of ERP can lead to accelerated growth.
The webinar will also feature a government funding discussion led by Mentor Works. Attendees will gain insight into how the Canada Job Grant can reduce employee training costs, which are often a major component of ERP project budgets. Companies may be eligible for up to 66% of third-party training expenses (83% if the business has <50 payroll employees) to a maximum $10,000/trainee.
