Posted by Nicole Smith on Wed, Oct 17, 2012 @ 06:40 PM

Editor’s Note: Nicole Smith is the Marketing Associate at IQMS and this is part two of a three days series chronicling her experiences at User Group 2012 [Read part one here].

Today’s User Group 2012 schedule (#IQMSUG2012) was focused completely on the breakout sessions. At every User Group event, IQMS wants to be sure and offer the maximum benefits to our attendees, so back in February, we surveyed our customers to get feedback on what they wanted to see and discuss at this year’s event. Based on the responses, IQMS tailored the User Group sessions to feature the most popular survey subjects and modules.

Managing the Talent Pool and Employee Retention at a Growing Company

Posted by Liz Alflen on Thu, Oct 04, 2012 @ 09:14 AM

Contrary to instinct, it’s more difficult to hire than it has been in years. It’s neither a buyer’s nor a seller’s market; hiring teams and qualified job seekers all have a lot of choices to make. They’re not the traditional choices. Hiring firms are evaluating applicants as the applicants evaluate them. Each side is evaluating what skills are transferable or applicable among diverse positions.

Making Shop Floor Automation Accessible to Manufacturers

Posted by Jason Slater on Thu, Aug 02, 2012 @ 09:12 AM

Every week, I'm involved in a conference call or meeting where a customer presents another interesting idea to IQMS’ Automation Department as an opportunity to extend our EnterpriseIQ manufacturing ERP system.

In fact, we started planning this event when we were still double digit months away from the date. Time sure has flown!
