How Industrial Mobile Apps Benefit Manufacturers

Experts predict 2.4 million manufacturing business jobs will go unfilled between now and 2028. However, when you harness the power of technology, you can fill these gaps all while doing more with less. Mobile industrial apps enable manufacturers to do more with fewer people. Faster data collection and data analysis make existing workers more productive and streamline work. Digitizing business processes and paper forms enables manufacturing companies to:

  • Increase worker efficiency by reducing the hours spent on each daily activity.
  • Capture the knowledge of experienced workers in intelligent apps that guide newer team members.
  • Lower risk by eliminating data-entry mistakes and delayed access to critical data.

The best mobile apps work offline, are optimized for one-handed data collection (i.e., photo capture, speech-to-text, time/date stamping, etc.), and tie into systems of record to automatically populate critical information for employees. The digital data can be shared instantly with the rest of the organization. In short, these apps improve processes and speed workflows, optimizing areas of your business and decreasing the burden on existing staff.

"Smart factories could add
$500 billion - $1.5 trillion in value to the global economy in 5 years."

Mobile industrial apps allow manufacturers to make better and faster business decisions that impact their bottom line.
