October was a busy month for QAD Redzone as we celebrated our annual Community Awards in Las Vegas. This event recognizes companies, teams, and individuals who have succeeded with the QAD Redzone Connected Workforce Solution. The awards also align with our corporate values to win the day and celebrate together, which we seek to instill in our customers.
Some winners are brand-new to QAD Redzone. Others continue to unlock value by deploying new modules, extending QAD Redzone to new plants, or driving ongoing incremental gains by creating a culture of continuous improvement.
Plants Still Notching Growth Amidst the Downturn
Manufacturing is emerging from a contraction in the U.S. Manufacturing PMI rose to 49.0 in September from 47.6 in August as orders improved. However, leaders know that a recession could still occur.
“The soft landing narrative still holds as we enter the final quarter of 2023,” said Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capital Markets in Toronto, quoted in a Reuters article about manufacturing performance.
Despite economic uncertainty, Redzoners are notching growth and operational gains. At our annual Community Awards, we celebrated Redzoners who are winning the day by using our tools to improve outcomes.
What Links Our Community Award Winners
Our award winners span different industries, manufacturing models, and levels of operational maturity. So, what links these dynamic teams and individuals?
