Manufacturing industries have undergone profound changes over the past five years. Traditional supply chain management—from product development, production, and supply to sales and service—no longer dominates the business model. As expanding international manufacturers relocate facilities in countries around the world, the business assets that make up the supply chain—people, products, equipment, and raw materials—are increasingly on the move. They seek solutions that improve communication and collaboration, provide flexibility for changing market conditions, enhance operational efficiency and improve security.
Our Unified Communication solutions provide the infrastructure to enable complete communications across the manufacturing enterprise. The hosted, cloud-based applications optimize collaboration, improve productivity and significantly reduce travel throughout the manufacturing environment and between locations.
These include issues inherent in globalization, outsourcing, reduced profit margins, rising labor costs, regulatory compliance, the introduction of new technology, satisfying and retaining customers, operational efficiency and asset management.
We understand these challenges and knows that unified communications can help address them by helping to cost-effectively manage research and development, production and assembly lines, and networks of suppliers along with helping to oversee production by subcontracting vendors, engineering and logistics.
West IP Communications can:
- Increase productivity through communication, thus reducing latency between teams, lowering travel-related costs and causing fewer delays.
- Allow personnel to quickly and cost-effectively share information and collaborate in real time to resolve supply chain issues
