Manufacturing Day 2019: What Excites Us About Working With Our Manufacturing Customers

Today is Manufacturing Day (#MFGDay19), where organizations around the country celebrate all that the industry has to offer and show our next generation of creators what a career in modern manufacturing is all about. We're proud and humbled to be part of a movement that understands and promotes the role of humans and human work. 

In our team's own words, here are some reasons why we come to work every day to empower industrial workers with modern digital tools!
