We are helping manufacturing firms to gain high-scale automation, easy monitoring, operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness with the best solutions necessary to enhance the hybrid work models while ensuring the internet and data security. Our smart collaboration and connectivity solutions like Smart Internet (with build-n cloud security and manageability), Smartflo – advanced cloud communication suite, cyber security solutions, SD-WAN iFlx enable enterprises to maintain business continuity in a flexible, scalable, and secure manner and boost their customer experience substantially.”
Mohanasundari Jaganathan- Managing Director, Sharp Electrodes Pvt Ltd said, “We certainly see the growth happening now with hybrid models. We endeavour into the pumps and welding electrode manufacturing industry, and I am glad to see a phenomenal growth in the industry pairing up with few overseas orders in the recent days.”
Ganesh Mathivanan – Director IT, Just Energy India said, “It is nearly impossible to introduce a full-fledged remote working environment for the manufacturing industry. But what we did to ensure our labours were safe was, we made sure each of their organization’s departments were spread from one another. This led to avoid huge mass of people being stagnant at the same place. The non-technical staff who would offer constant support were made to work from a remote location but with a continuous tele presence.”
LR Venkatesh Managing Director, Vesat Renewables Pvt Ltd, “In today’s world, as much as expectations is levied on the quality, the corresponding strength of workforce is always low. Henceforth, we have adopted the automation as our strong suit to not only reduce our dependency on the workforce but also to increase the quality of the products.”
Subbaiah Rajendran, Director Engineering Services, Navandes LLP, “Just like the Quality Management Systems that we have for the manufacturing process, there must be a Digital Quality Management Systems that measures the digital well-being, cyber security, IT infrastructure and this has to be audited regularly to ensure the integrity of the organization is kept intact.”
