Business matching with leading Japanese companies for enhancement of manufacturing productivity and automation technology.


As manufacturing companies transition to new IoT technologies and services in the factory setting, digital solutions and automation are enabling more efficient production flows and end-to-end process improvement. Increasing cost pressures from global competition and the challenge for resources have created the need for digitalizing factories to optimize efficiency in human resources and improve work flow in ‘real-time’.
