The manufacturing industry is one of the world’s most most diverse sectors, contributing the critical components required to keep today’s world moving forwards. This continually evolving industry is highly reliant upon innovation and efficiency, and staying competitive through faster production cycles, reduced costs and facilitating a more productive workforce is key to industry success.
So what are the benefits of Video Communication within manufacturing?
- Fast-paced product-development cycles
Visual Collaboration solutions enable teams to communicate more efficiently, quickly share data and information with supply chains and be much more productive. With the right video conferencing and collaboration tools, real-time data, modelling, blueprints and designs can be displayed and processed immediately, and decisions can be made and shared at a moments notice, regardless of location or device.
- Collaboration between multinational workgroups and dispersed teams
Business is becoming more dispersed than ever before. Companies are expanding across the globe, and businesses must provide the tools and technologies to enable dispersed employees, warehouses and offices to interact, collaboration and build relationships, wherever they are located. Engaged employees are more productive, and video conferencing can provide the highly interactive, face-to-face communication needed to bring your dispersed teams together. See our Dispersed Workforce Solutions.
- Complex project management
With Video Conferencing, projects can be streamlined and managed more efficiently, with project managers able to support multiple sites and tasks without high levels of travel and cost. Complexity of project management can be greatly reduced – timescales of many activities that are interrelated can be reduced, experts can easily be called upon where necessary, and where conferences were previously carried out via awkward, un-engaging audio conferencing, teams can now collaborate face-to-face, with higher interaction, better relationships and a better overall understanding of the tasks to be completed.
- Communication between a dispersed supply chain, warehouses, technicians & experts
Effective supply chain management is the key for manufacturers aiming to stay ahead of the competition. Today’s supply chain has to be more agile than ever before. With Video Conferencing for manufacturers, global teams can meet instantly face-to-face, anywhere, anytime. Teams can respond quickly to design changes and are able to keep up with globalisation, the need for increased productivity, faster-paced business and to stay competitive.
Whether designing new engines, developing pharmaceuticals, manufacturing gauges for ships, developing new in-flight technologies or researching new methods for textile manufacture and design, VideoCentric’s Video Conferencing Solutions for the Manufacturing industry have been implemented globally to bring together supply chains and dispersed workforces more effectively, more productively and more economically.
