VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired – November 24, 2016) –
SYSPRO, a provider of award-winning, best-of-breed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that it will be conducting a complimentary, live webinar for Canadian manufacturing leaders, “Exporting to the U.S. — Key Strategies for Canadian Export Readiness” on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 10:00 A.M. PT / 1:00 P.M. ET.
The exclusive webinar will feature leading industry experts Mathew Wilson, Senior Vice President for Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), and Dave Cavan, Regional Sales Manager for SYSPRO Canada, who will share their deep industry insights into how Canadian manufacturers who are considering exporting to the U.S. can devise a successful strategy to become export-ready. This session will be hosted by CanadianManufacturing.com.
Today’s Canadian manufacturers have begun to sharpen their focus on expanding their businesses outside of Canada, as a strategic means of accelerating business growth. According to the inaugural 2016 industry report, “Export Insights,” published by CanadianManufacturing.com, which surveyed over 500 leading manufacturing executives across Canada, 60 percent of survey respondents indicated that they currently export their products and services outside of Canada. In addition, 80 percent of Canadian manufacturers anticipated future increased exporting growth within the next 12 months. With a surging American economy and weak Canadian dollar; declining oil prices; geographic proximity and accessibility; and culture and language familiarity, it is no wonder the study concluded that 95 percent of the Canadian manufactures who are currently exporting, do so to the U.S. for business growth.
Despite the compelling reasons for exporting to the U.S. for financial gain, Canadian manufacturers either face — or perceive to face, several daunting obstacles when it comes to breaking into new markets. Deciding whether to start exporting outside of Canada is the first step, but determining how best to approach your U.S. export strategy becomes the more complex and challenging choice.
Register today for this informative 45-minute webinar, designed specifically for Canadian manufacturing leaders, and discover key strategies to become export-ready, to avoid risk and equal financial reward. In this session, attendees will receive an overview into:
- The market opportunity for exporting to the U.S.
- Strategies for export success and common pitfalls to avoid
- A roadmap for success when selecting the ‘right’ target market
- Considerations for leveraging technology, such as ERP, to become export-ready
“There are still excellent reasons for small and medium-sized Canadian manufacturing businesses to jump on the bandwagon of exporting to the U.S. for long-term success,” according to Dave Cavan, Regional Sales Manager for SYSPRO Canada. “With such an obvious expansion opportunity available to pay dividends, Canadian manufacturers who don’t currently do any business south of the border, need to determine how to prepare their businesses to become export-ready so they can enjoy success in their revenue growth endeavors.”
The webinar is free to attend but participants must register in advance. To register for this complimentary webinar on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 10:00 A.M. PT / 1:00 P.M. ET, please visit:
