Manufacturers are contending with more competition and more customer demands than ever before. To stay ahead, manufacturers need to focus on production throughput, supply chain management, and efficient field service operations. Missing the mark could mean closing factory doors.
Leading manufacturers are turning to mobile-first productivity and collaboration tools to empower their workforce and innovate faster for their customers. Read on to learn more about key trends.
Productivity-boosting trend: Mobile
Manufacturers are investing in mobile tools to increase productivity and improve communication across the supply chain. Nothing boosts productivity like giving manufacturing teams (especially remote service and field teams) a comprehensive, up-to-date, and easy-access view of every customer and their product information. Top-performing manufacturing service teams are 1.9x more likely than their underperforming peers to have a comprehensive, up-to-date view of their customers and products. But they’re also 2.2x more likely to equip their agents with mobile-first platforms so they can resolve issues while in the field.
