We believe in the value of supporting individual personal development through education and training.

At a higher level, we also actively support educational institutions in the delivery of educational curricula that directly support the development of Operations and supply chain-focused programs; where these programs are aimed at expanding the body of knowledge, specific skills and best practices necessary to support the growing demand for qualified professionals in the fields of production and distribution management.

To support this philosophy, we have developed an academic alliance program aimed specifically at educational institutions who wish to use our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) product suite as a teaching tool in their academic programs.
