It's time to develop new products and services

Feb. 4, 2021
How companies can focus on developing new products and services during a pandemic and where automation can help take companies to find new avenues for success

In this episode of Control Intelligence, our host Anna Townshend continues the discussion with two experts from accounting firm Clayton & McKervey. Part 3 makes the case for why now might be the time to develop new products and services—yes, even during a pandemic. Bryan Powrozek is industrial automation manager and Tim Finerty is industrial automation practice leader and shareholder at Clayton & McKervey. These two work closely with many industrial automation businesses and here they share their tips with us about what's available through programs like the CARES Act and other government funding as well as how businesses can focus on their own internal processes to prepare for the future.
