Future of Manufacturing:
According to Gartner, more than half (54%) of manufacturing businesses plan to spend 10% or more on software in 2024 compared to 2023. With the continued advancement of intelligent automation, Internet of Things, and AI technology, manufacturers are seeking new ways to improve their customer experience processes and optimise their supply chain operations, whilst reducing emissions at the same time.
On the flip side, 48% of manufacturers have “buyer’s regret” from a recent tech purchase—most commonly due to cost, implementation issues or insufficient functionality. Too often, organisations do not have the expertise or opportunity to truly assess whether an application truly suits their business needs, or else they do not have the right strategy in place that enables the buisness to adopt the new technology successfully.
Having a consultancy partner that can demonstrate the usability and functionality of a product, as well as build out a change management strategy that minimises risk, is essential for any digital transformation project. Moreover, by choosing a partner – like Enigen – that has specialised industry expertise and experience is paramount to building a roadmap that guarantees long-term success.
