How Mobile Apps Benefit Manufacturing Companies

Experts predict 2.4 million manufacturing jobs will go unfilled between now and 2028. Mobile apps allow manufacturers to do more with fewer people by streamlining processes and making existing workers more productive. 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 more experienced workers in intelligent apps that can guide less experienced workers.
  • 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 entry (i.e., speech-to-text) and tie into systems of record to auto-populate critical information for employees and share information with the rest of the organization more quickly. 

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

With mobile apps, not only will data capture and sharing improve, but utilizing data to make better and faster business decisions will dramatically impact the company's bottom line.
