We acknowledge that over the last few years manufacturing, production & supply chain companies have digitised many of their processes. However there is still an underlying issue with how work is organised across the entire business. Paper based processes are still taking place and systems are not aligned with each other creating unnecessary, time consuming daily tasks.
With the hectic work environment in most companies in these industries, Managers need the quickest way to communicate to their employees. It is still prevalent in these companies to use traditional based communication such as word of mouth, email, phone or pen and paper. If this is still the mind set in your organisation then it needs to change! This lacks efficiency and speed and is unmotivating for all employees. Having a modern and competent system in place for all your processes will make life easier for everyone in your organisation. In particular, having your HR, L&D, Health & Safety, Quality, ESG and maintenance & operations SOP’s, checklists, learning modules etc. in the one place will result in successful audits.
We have identified some indicators that your company needs a technology push towards a connected workforce platform. These will assist management to discover if technological support with a modern connected workforce system could be of help to everyone.
