Summer is upon us. Depending on where you reside, you may be experiencing true summer weather, or not! It may or may not be beach weather yet. But I hope you’ve purchased or downloaded a few good reads to enjoy wherever you vacation.

Summer reads usually fall into the category of light reading. But some of us use vacation time to catch up on business-related reading, too. The reading material you set aside for “later” and “later” is now. I have one for you to add to that pile. It’s a 12-chapter eBook that Strategic Systems Group (SSG) published in 2017 and fine-tuned in 2018. And it’s all about ERP systems for manufacturers.
