Manufacturing Industry Trends for 2020

Digitization as a Competitive Advantage in the Next Normal

Industry 4.0 is in full swing and it has transformed every element of the manufacturing industry around the world. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that AI has 3,000 times the impact on today’s factories than the changes brought by the Industrial Revolution in the early 19th century.

As the global manufacturing industry recovers from the impact of COVID-19, having a connected workforce will be key in driving productivity, operating more efficiently, and complying with new health and safety regulations. Digitally enabling your frontline manufacturing workforce—from line workers to shop foreman—will be a crucial step in building this new-and-improved, more connected workforce. The ability to quickly reach and engage every employee is essential to maintaining business agility in the next normal.

This white paper will reveal how to:

  • Reduce safety costs by as much as $40,000
  • Save time for frontline managers
  • Shorten new hire time to productivity
