For manufacturers throughout California and across the country, the new year brings new challenges—and a wealth of new opportunities. But to take advantage of these opportunities, manufacturers of all sizes need to be aware of emerging trends—and willing to adapt to them.
Having a substantial competitive advantage in manufacturing is a goal that’s not easy to achieve, especially among thousands of aggressive rivals in the same industry. In an effort to gain traction against other manufacturers, many are turning to innovative manufacturing apps that allow them to have complete and real-time visibility not only on the shop floor, warehouses, and administrative offices but also across the supply chain.Read More
Back by popular demand! We published this blog on manufacturing apps just a little over a year ago. Since it has proven to be one of our most popular blogs of all time, we decided to update, expand and republish it.
As you are no doubt aware, technology has entered our home and work lives in numerous ways -- from cars that can parallel park hands-free to numerous iPhone, iPad, and Android apps to keep our children occupied with games and keep us on track with food and fitness. Mobile apps can also be found in manufacturing and companies and programmers have been pretty busy filling this niche to help manufacturers in their everyday work environments.Read More
