CME SMART Program Benefits for Ontario Manufacturers Announced by SeQent
London, ON – February 26, 2009 – SeQent, the leading provider of real-time visualization, ANDON and messaging solutions for the plant floor and enterprise, announced today that they will be offering Ontario manufacturers an opportunity to become more innovative and improve their productivity. This chance to leap ahead in the current global economy is made possible with the CME SMART Program Benefits launched by the Government of Ontario and administered by the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME).
The CME SMART Program provides financial assistance up to $50,000 for LEAN manufacturing, process and quality improvement projects, IT best practices and energy efficiency projects that would otherwise be out of the scope of the budget. To support this program, SeQent has offered a cost-effective solution that will allow Ontario based manufacturers to come on board and reap the benefits of a product that gets the right information to the right people at the right time.
“With the struggling global economy and falling Canadian dollar in 2009, manufacturing efficiency is a top priority for Ontario manufacturers”, says SeQent CTO, Scott Burns. “The CME SMART Program enables manufacturers to implement our world-class Lean Manufacturing tool set to maintain productivity and quality standards despite a decrease in available capital and human resources.”
