The Race to Digital: The State of Digitization of Canadian SMEs
Join us for the release of the report, “Picking up Speed: Digital Maturity in Canadian SMEs and why Increasing it Matters"
May 12, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a significant strain on the manufacturing industry, pressuring companies to reduce costs and improve processes to survive.
If your business is facing challenges, you’re not alone. According to Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters’ (CME) biannual Management Issues Survey, the economic fallout from the pandemic will linger for years. Almost 42% of manufacturers reported that their current level of production was lower today than one year ago. With Canadian manufacturing accounting for 11% of our GDP and employing over 750,000 Ontarians the effects of this disruption are widespread.
For the industry to adapt and stay ahead, an innovative shift towards new technologies and digital solutions is needed.
Watch us sit down with digital trailblazers from CME’s Ontario Made Program to explore the sector, its unique challenges in today’s business environment, and the effective digital strategies you can use to generate revenue and enhance operational efficiency.
