Rebecca Gill, vice-president of Technology Group International, “Too often industrial executives wonder what happened to that ROI (return on investment) figure promised by the sales representative of a recent IT purchase. Purchasers of Enterprise 21 do not have to ask such questions when implementing TGI’s ERP software. TGI is so confident of the potential ROI obtained from an Enterprise 21 purchase, that six months after implementation; customers may schedule a free ROI workshop lead by a member of TGI’s executive management staff. This eight hour workshop will review operational progress to date and help target future areas of improvement.”
From the customer service desk into the manufacturing facility and onto the warehouse shelves, TGI is onsite and available to help customers obtain the largest return on investment possible. Management includes the following principles:
