The Digital Path to Industry 4.0

March 16, 2017

A few months ago I blogged about KPMG’s Canadian Manufacturing Outlook 2016 report, and challenged the misconceptions surrounding technology’s ROI for factory operators.

Unfortunately, not much has changed in the months since my original post. Canadian manufacturers are still slow to adopt advanced technologies. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is still confusing to many owners and operators. And manufacturers remain hesitant to invest during a period of high energy costs, uncertain trade conditions and little economic growth.

If the above sounds familiar, you aren’t alone. But there is good news. You can be successful. It just takes thinking outside the box and exploring how new technologies can help you consume less energy, spend less on production and be more efficient with resources.

Implementing advanced technologies like the IIoT is easier than you think. See how you can benefit now, and start saving today.
