The Role of Mobile Solutions for Production Control and Quality Assurance

Since late 2019, the world’s manufacturers have faced several significant challenges and disruptions that demand companies increase the pace of their digital transformation. This includes disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic, an aging workforce and worker shortages, and an increase in cyber threats. In the face of these challenges, manufacturers know that advanced technologies can help them modernize to streamline processes, adapt to change, and keep workers productive and efficient. A 2022 study by Plex Systems found that 64% of organizations “agree that technology can reduce hiring challenges and fuel growth in the next five years.”
