In the manufacturing business, time is money. That’s why manufacturing teams are turning to video conferencing. It has allowed manufacturing firms to reduce production time, ultimately leading to decreasing the amount of time it takes for a product to get into the hands of the consumer.

Video conferencing solutions simplify the manufacturing industry by providing their employees face to face collaboration regardless of the geographical boundaries. These interactions can be executed in different kinds of environments, in an R&D lab, the factory floor, conference rooms or on the go. The on-demand collaboration among the various departments supports the manufacturing revolution and simplifies the design and production processes.

Manufacturers know that when they streamline their processes, they gain an immediate competitive advantage by:

  • Making operations more efficient
  • Reducing time- to- market and time- to- manufacture
  • Enhancing the supply chain management
  • Better understanding of customer needs by having more frequent contact.
  • More efficient and customer focused R&D and Product Design
  • Greater access to human resources, including hiring, training and employee advancement
  • Quicker, more cost effective service and maintenance, including the prevention of site visits in some cases.

Video collaboration can positively impact operations in a number of ways:

  • Lower service expenses
  • Lower production downtime and reduction of waste
  • Capability to meet or surpass service-level agreements
  • Increase rate of compliance
  • Better customer satisfaction
  • Faster employee progress & productivity
