It’s no secret that technology is constantly changing the way businesses do business. The number of “smart” factories and facilities is growing exponentially. And in addition to traditional manufacturing, other industries like self-storage, utilities, medical devices, and food and beverage are readily embracing the trend.
With over 75 years of industry expertise, Autoquip remains at the forefront of these high-tech advances, providing custom lifts that leverage the latest features in intelligent technology.
Smart Facilities Are Here To Stay
As the adoption rate of IIOT continues to increase in 2023, facilities across industries are getting “smarter.” IIOT, or the Industrial Internet Of Things, sets the stage for creating the connectivity that sophisticated devices require to work together. In addition to building a digital network infrastructure, IIOT allows facility managers to take more control over facility operations, safety, maintenance, and security.
When combined with year-over-year cost savings, better functioning teams, and the reduced incidence of downtime, these benefits demonstrate some of the reasons why so many businesses are shifting to smart environments. Compared to traditional work settings, the operational efficiencies and performance improvements achieved in today’s smart facilities are hard to ignore.
