Rapping About a World at Risk

Rebuilding America’s Manufacturing with Better Process

Sum2 recently participated in a Podcast sponsored by Better Process Podcast. The subject of the podcast was GRC for SMEs.

Better Process Podcast discusses news and market events that address manufacturing issues. The topics range from US manufacturing, China competition, RFID, lean manufacturing, and manufacturing technology.

Better Process podcasts was founded by Ken Rayment. Ken is a Black Belt Six Sigma guy who has a passion for his work and is deeply commited to the development and revitalization of manufacturing in the United States.

Sum2 caught Ken’s attention through a press release we issued offering free access to the Profit|Optimizers macroeconomic risk module. Though Sum2’s market focus is small and midsize businesses we are heartened and honored to participate in the Bettter Process podcast series.

Sum2 takes its name from the Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures (S.U.M.), S.U.M. was founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1793. The purpose of S.U.M was to promote useful manufacturing by using the waterpower generated by the Great Falls. S.U.M was the first planned industrial city in North America and should rightly be considered the cradle of industrial capitalism in North America. The area of S.U.M.’s founding was later incorporated as the City of Paterson New Jersey, which would grow to become a major industrial center from the 1800’s through World War 2. Paterson was a key munitions, textile and locomotive manufacture center during the Civil War and thus played a pivotal role in helping preserve Alexander Hamilton’s conception of a Federalist Union of States.

Though the landscape of industrial capitalism has changed during the Information Age, Sum2 was founded to continue the useful and visionary work of the original S.U.M. Sum2 recognizes the strategic importance of manufacturing and will seek to build our business by creating proprietary content, ASP delivery capabilities and mission critical software to implement corporate sound practices for our clients as they seek to create value in the digital economy.
