Are You a Manufacturing Association?

There’s plenty of talk about the challenges that member-based organizations are facing, but you don’t need to be part of that narrative. Now, it’s time to give your association the fuel it needs to aspire to new heights — where you’ll offer new perspectives for your members. Digital transformation is a hot topic for all industries and one of the top concerns for all CEO’s. One method for the association to offer value to members is to provide specifically tailored guidance and research on digital issues that affect the association’s members.

Services that can be private labeled and offered to your members on a very cost effective basis include:

  • Digital Readiness Survey – an annual process to assess the current digital adoption of the members and identify digital roadmaps. We work with you to keep your members coming back for more. Armed with a snapshot in “real-time”, we’ll garner insights and opportunities for digital transformation and provide an overarching strategy. This locks in relevancy for members and growth for your organization. The result? Deeper relationships, inspired participants, pathways to new audiences, and ideas to truly distinguish your brand in a competitive environment.
  • Host Digital Transformation Event at MTechHub customized for your industry challenges – a value add service to reinforce the reasons for members to stay or join your association. This opportunity will inspire members and open their eyes to a world of new possibilities and members can learn how Industry 4.0 will affect their industry. Members want to be part of a unique engaging experience that reinforces the value of belonging to your organization
  • Identify the Top 5 Obstacles to Digital Adoption
  • Design best practices for industry specific business processes- this promotes community involvement
  • Present Digital Transformation opportunities at membership meetings

Now that you know more about us, we want to learn more about what matters to you, your organization, your members and your partners.

Become an MTechHub Supplier.

Do you supply products or services to SME Manufacturing Companies? Do you have a technology solution that solves problems or improves revenues for manufacturing companies? We work collaboratively with you to create win/win contracts.

Would you like 400 more customers? MTechHub’s strategy is to select a single supplier per product/service category for a three-year exclusive contract.

MTechHub uses the following criteria in supplier selection:

  • Has demonstrated quality, service, delivery, price and product knowledge
  • Can properly service MTechHub members.
  • Optimizes product inventory and production to quickly fill MTechHub member orders
  • Has full digital capabilities – EDI, Ecommerce, Digital Payments, Service Tickets to handle business transactions, billing, shipping, follow-up, etc. efficiently and promptly.
  • Strong financial condition
  • The company must have an overall commitment to lean, six sigma and process excellence.

For the right technology suppliers we may partner with funding, equity, project management, minimum viable product definition, collaboration on product roadmap, end user deployment and training.

We standardize the group’s purchases to deliver volume to the supplier and optimize digital integration. Our rigorous selection and negotiation process delivers competitive advantage to our manufacturing members. We significantly reduce supplier’s sales and marketing costs, and increase sales volume. Frequently we will work with the supplier to reduce supplier offerings into standardized packages that reduce inventory, costs and are easy to deliver. We track payments to ensure suppliers are paid on time improving cash flow and eliminating bad debts.
