    New technology is bringing a new era of manufacturing.

    More and more, businesses are seeing the benefits and investing in this technology - therefore investing in themselves. 

    If you're considering taking that step, here are two great reasons to make your factory smarter. 

    Reducing downtime

    Catching machine issues before they cause a backup is vital in today's competitive industry. The quicker you catch the problem, the less impact it will have on your production.

    An added benefit of catching problems early can also be employee safety. 

    Forbes said, "One of the most exciting components of the Industry 4.0 revolution is the promise of cloud-connected IoT devices that facilitate remote monitoring and control of critical manufacturing equipment, thereby reducing downtime and saving organizations an enormous amount of time and money while minimizing the risk assumed by field technicians."

    Wouldn't you like that kind of insight into your machines?

    This leads us to our next reason. . .

    Transparency

    Transparency into your machines isn't just valuable in reducing downtime, you can also significantly cut down on errors. 

    Machine Design reported on a company that began using new technology. They said, "The company saw a 10% reduction in defect degradation and was able to reduce delivery delays by 8%."

    These statistics show the kind of impact Industry 4.0 technology can have on a company's bottom line. If you're looking to reduce downtime and increase transparency into your machines, contact us today! We can give you the resources to make informed decisions.
