According to Katz, during the early years of the decade, the adoption of “green” practices was a major concern for manufacturers and distributors. While Government legislation did much to promote “green” initiatives, the overall consensus was that the responsibility to conserve the earth’s resources and save the environment rested with the business community. However, the recession of the past several years has seemingly put “green” on the back burner. Companies appear to have abandoned their green goals, concentrating instead on ways to survive the severe economic downturn and remain viable in the emerging “new normal” economy. The shift has been to “lean” rather than “green.” However, the two are not only compatible; they are “sides of the same coin.”
Katz will explain how both “lean” and “green” are achievable via the judicious selection and implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution. Due to the savings that ERP software can produce, such software is also essential to prospering in the coming “new normal” economy.
