Wearable gadgets are not just for the fitness crazed; many businesses are discovering how wearables and other connected devices can improve traditional operations.
Modern cloud-computing is connecting companies with their data better than ever. Sales professionals, field services teams, or other colleagues in the field can capture, enter, or access data from nearly any location, at any time. Extending this connectivity into the warehouse and onto the shop floor isn’t as far-fetched as it may seem. Barcodes and scanners can provide real-time insight into inventory whether it’s entering your warehouse, making its way through the manufacturing process, or heading to your valued customer. Now, with the right technology, you can connect any machines or tools to your systems from torque wrenches to CNC machines, adding a whole new level of insight to your operations.
There are likely many mobile devices in your building already including smartphones, tablets, scanners, and printers. Add to that list wearable devices such as smart watches and smart glasses and the data you capture can be used to further streamline operations and improve productivity. Connect your people, processes, and machines to leverage the resulting data to your competitive advantage.
