Episode 17: Technology and People: What's the Right Combo?
Show Notes

Today’s topic is definitely important in the business world and especially in the manufacturing world. We all use technology so frequently that it is now embedded in our work and home lives. But is it all too much sometimes? What’s the right balance between utilizing technology and actual human interaction? And how much technology is too much technology?

Joining us in this episode is Kirsten Austin. For over twenty-five years she has been involved in the software business with a focus on manufacturing, distribution and fulfillment. Currently she is the Business Relations Manager for DCSC Inc.

DCSC started as a VAR for an accounting and manufacturing solution. Later they decided to sell and implement another ERP solution. They have earned two major ERP awards in 2002 and 2003. Subsequently focus was shifted to solely support, develop and implement their published software suite DC Warehouse Automation and their Multi-Carrier Shipping Solution DCMobile. These solutions are implemented across the nation and beyond. They have direct shipping carrier integrations with FedEx®, UPS®, DHL®, Endicia®, Purolator® and other carriers. DCSC software is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our distribution, manufacturing and fulfillment clients. We help take the "Bull" (manual and redundant processes) out of the warehouse.

Kirsten also is a leader for USA Manufacturing Hour Chat on Twitter. Anyone who champions U.S. manufacturing can join in on a new conversation each week on Twitter using the hashtag #USAMfgHour. The chat starts at 11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time/2 p.m. Eastern.
