I saw an interesting article this morning on Bloomberg citing CEO's optimism for the coming year.

One item of interest was that nearly 60% of CEOs surveyed responded that they planned to increase spending on equipment in 2011. At the same time, manufacturers have been slow to staff up from pre-recession levels. Our customers may be in a position where they have to do far more with a smaller staff.

It would seem that this is an opportune time for a company to search for areas to automate processes, to eliminate duplication of efforts, or to eliminate superfluous steps in the product development process. As always, we are here to work with you on these issues.
