Management Resources Group, Inc. Sponsors Aberdeen Group’s Latest Enterprise Asset Management Benchmark Report

SOUTHBURY, CT:  Management Resources Group, Inc. (MRG), a leader in Enterprise Asset Management Solutions, recently co-sponsored the Aberdeen Group’s latest benchmark report, “Asset Performance Management: Driving Excellence through a Reliability Approach.”  This report correlates specific business capabilities and technology enablers to Best-in-Class operational performance.

MRG’s clients participated in the study and the results will allow them to benchmark their asset performance monitoring, reliability, and management capabilities against peers and Best-in-Class companies.  The report provides a roadmap for organizations planning to implement a successful Asset Performance Management initiative, particularly in the report analytics and Best-in-Class characteristics of the study’s outcomes.

“We are pleased with the results of the Aberdeen Report, which quantifies what we have intuited from the market,” said Will Goetz, Chief Marketing Officer of MRG.  “Companies focused on improving their Returns on Assets are investing in technologies and processes that enhance physical asset performance.  Given the scarcity of capital today, we expect many more companies to seek ‘the hidden plant’ within the assets they already have.  This study will help them.”
