Greetings!

Believe it or not, the holiday season has already begun, and we have much to be thankful for. After the recent years of turbulence the manufacturing industry has experienced, the light at the end of the tunnel is gradually coming into view. As those who get face-to-face with shops of all types and sizes around the country can attest, we have reason to hope for fruitful years to come.

This is not to say that the work ahead will be easy. Surviving the recession's up-swing can be just as difficult as surviving the recession itself. Economic experts cite that, "Those who've invested time to rethink and improve their businesses are ones that will flourish. Those who've just managed to survive will find themselves desperately struggling as the economy follows this bathtub-curve progression."

Learn how Cimatron customers are surviving with speed and doing more with less by watching free webinar recordings, "Survival of the Quickest" and "Doing More with Less in a Sluggish Economy."

Some, like Cimatron customer, StackTeck (Brampton, ON), are experiencing global growth thanks to their collaboration with customers and getting early involvement in the part design process.

Speaking of quoting, it is a particularly challenging facet of business for Die Makers. With a best-case-scenario of one sale for every three quotes, what is the real cost of quoting?

Enjoy the issue,
