Mobility in Manufacturing – Towards streamlined productivity

Mobility in Manufacturing – Towards streamlined productivity

Manufacturers are rapidly discovering new ways to utilize mobile technology for maximized efficiency. Through the use of smartphones, tablets, and laptops all linked to one network, manufacturing processes are being tracked real-time and displaying incredibly accurate data.

Over next couple of years, we expect a 33% growth in deployment of mobility solutions in manufacturing. By 2016 a predicted 23% of the $5 billion mobile enterprise services industry will be made up by manufacturing. Deployment of mobility solutions in manufacturing process impacts various KPIs of business and study shows that it not only helps in improving operational efficiency and manufacturing productivity but also helps in lowering operating costs.
