Improving Lines of Communication in the Manufacturing Industry

Manufacturing IndustryCommunication in the manufacturing industry is regarded as a “soft skill,” but ways of improving communication is often overlooked by manufacturing plants in favour of production. Interactive whiteboards and video conferencing technology provide a solution that improves lines of communication whilst also helping to maintain and increase productivity.

Flint Strategic Partners, a full service business based in the US recognized that communication is more important in the modern business world because companies are operating with fewer employees in an effort to reduce costs. They needed to find a solution and installed video conferencing equipment. As a result their bottom line output increased by 10 per cent.

Video conferencing technology

Communication technology has progressed significantly from phone, email and chat rooms to a level where it is possible to hold a dynamic meeting online. The use of high-definition display screens, surround-sound and real-time connectivity enables businesses to engage with one another from remote locations as though you were in the same room.

Interactive whiteboards also give you the benefit of touch-screen technology that can be used by multiple users on a variety of devices including laptops and handheld tablets. What’s more, the software for interactive whiteboards is compatible with existing office-based applications which can be easily integrated into your presentation or meeting notes.

The real beauty of this new-age technology however, is that it can be used by multiple users at the same time – regardless of their location. This means that you can communicate with an overseas client from your own office, but still engage them by enabling them to physically involve themselves with the meeting and interact with the content and technology.

Reduce travel expenses

CNN recently published a report revealing global business travel amounted to more than $1 trillion in 2012. The reason for this is because businesses in Europe and the United States are looking to invest in Asia and the Middle-East rather than closer to home.

This idea is particularly prevalent within the manufacturing industry given the reduced costs in wages and rental charges for factories and offices. Investing in interactive video technology cuts costs even further, produces more productivity and reduces the world’s carbon footprint.

Inspirational technology

Of course, the technology can also be used on a micro-level to communicate with remote staff and train new employees. The innovative software is easy to use, but because of its wide variety of capabilities is far more dynamic than traditional methods and thus more inspirational for users and delegates.

Whiteboards use digital ink which you can add using your finger, has unbound space so you never run out of room to add content, and can use a wide variety of content pulled from different sources including graphs, videos, still images, text and internet links.

Interactive video conferencing opens boundaries and the lines of communication all over the globe, engages users and inspires delegates. If you are a business with ambitions of future growth you cannot afford to be without cutting edge technology that allows you to reach out to new partners.
