Released Thursday, 1st April 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Paul Van Metre is the Co-Founder of ProShop ERP and offers insight to areas that make a significant impact for those supporting industries.  Paul specializes in helping machine and fabrication shops grow and support the changing market needs around them.  Many of these businesses begin through the industry knowledge that the owners themselves have and bring to the table.  Scaling that is where it can get tricky, and Paul unpacks many areas to consider to get past this headwind and onto the road of success.
He speaks to what indicators and data are important for businesses to understand and how to use that information to make better decisions in the future.  Tying areas such as quality, sales and customer service together can be challenging, and Paul covers areas to focus on that could move the ball down the field.  Those are areas that most shop owners aren’t trained in and creating a way to support these items are critical for future growth. 
 Think about this – how can a shop know its profitability on every job?  This is a common struggle area and in Paul’s recipe he uncovers how with the right processes and platforms in place every shop can have accurate and to the minute data available to be successful.  Helping others see how a system could improve their process and help in business growth are all areas that Paul expands upon.  
This is a thought-provoking recipe for differentiation and one that we feel could help many out there that are supporting the growing world of manufacturing.
