iPhone and ComputersOver the years, Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) has supported over 1000 manufacturer’s projects pertaining to implementing or upgrading their IT systems, such as: cloud-based application implementation; enterprise resource planning (ERP); web-based marketing, services, and outreach; website development; and network, virtualization, and redundancy planning.

The NWIRC’s IT KickStart Program provides manufacturers with experienced business advisors who have a problem solving and solution development focus. The objective information provided is not linked with specific service providers, brands, or products. Once specific solutions are identified, they have access to the region’s top affiliated IT service providers and university resources for completing potential projects. Some of these IT projects may also qualify for an available mini-grant based on estimated impact and third-party provider costs. Click here for more information and the program application.
