Hellllooooooo, Las Vegas! I have been waiting weeks for the arrival of User Group 2014 and finally, after two years in the making, it is here! And let me tell you, Day 1 did not disappoint - It was a whirlwind of networking, learning and fun. If you were unable to attend User Group 2014, let me give you a quick peek into what you missed today:

Tonight, manufacturing leaders from around the nation will gather for the 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Summit Awards Gala at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida to recognize and celebrate the brightest, most innovative manufacturers in the nation. IQMS will be in attendance to support four of our customers who are being recognized with Manufacturing Leadership Awards in categories that range from Engineering & Production Technology to Operational Leadership to Sustainability. These awards are bestowed by the Manufacturing Leadership Council, a unit of Frost & Sullivan.
It's official: Registration for User Group 2014 has opened! In celebration of IQMS' 25th anniversary, we have compiled a list of the top 25 reasons you don't want to miss this conference. Jam-packed with strategic guidance, tips and tricks, best practices, software development and dynamic networking, you are certain to leave with actionable takeaways to maximize your software utilization. So without further ado, here are the top 25 reasons you should attend User Group 2014:
Back in late 2011, when we began the planning process for our second building at our IQMS corporate headquarters in Paso Robles, we prepared workforce projections for two years, five years and 10 years, based on our then-current headcount and our projected growth. Being conservative optimists, we decided on straight-line appreciation at 20 percent year upon year (44 percent over the first two years). When we completed the calculations and looked at all those numbers, we were excited about the prospects. The rewards of our corporate philosophy on long term decision-making were manifesting in an increasing headcount.
We should have been enjoying the last days of summer in a languid bliss of sun, sand and surf, but here at IQMS, we have spent another season growing in every direction!

It is just about the second quarter of 2013 and nearly five months since IQMS' last User Group. Believe it or not, we are already receiving requests for when the next User Group event will be! This is wonderful news because it reiterates the success of the last event and, more importantly, the validity of continuing this conference. But what goes into the preparation of User Group and when should clients plan to participate? Good questions.
As we are now into 2013, many companies take this time to make goals and embrace new ways of doing business. One of the areas that should be on the list to explore is the use of social media. Often the forgotten outlet of public relations, especially among manufacturing companies, social media has no signs of downward trending. In fact, quite the opposite. Research shows that companies that fail to embrace social media (regardless of industry) are at risk of losing revenue. But where do you start and how can you turn a social media campaign into an asset for your manufacturing company? Below is a breakdown of a few things that everyone can do.
It is hard to believe that User Group 2012 (#IQMSUG2012) ended today. What a whirlwind the last three days have been – it was an experience not to be missed!
