Challenges of digital transformation in manufacturing enterprises

Low efficiency and accuracy of manual operation on massive data processing

Departments such as R&D, Production, and Finance regularly handle substantial data loads for data analysis, product preparation, and invoice verification, etc. These tasks can be repetitive and tedious, involving procedures like data download, verification, and entry. Manual handling of these tasks can result in inefficiencies, reduced communication effectiveness, and a higher risk of errors, adding pressure to employees and increasing business risks.

Inefficient cross-function communication with isolated internal data

As enterprises expand, seamless collaboration among functions becomes crucial, particularly in large manufacturing companies. They need a unified approach for product development, production, and sales. However, effective communication and information sharing present challenges. Traditional systems involve manual input and updates, leading to synchronization issues across departments and increased communication costs, hindering scalability.

Limited employee digital literacy and a shortage of tech professionals

The success of digitalization doesn't just rely on advanced technology but also on fostering digital awareness and basic skills among all employees. This development journey involves progressing from merely using tools to fully utilizing them and ultimately to creating new solutions. It's crucial to empower all employees with the ability to quickly grasp automated tools and nurture their capability for innovation. Therefore, selecting an easy-to-learn, flexible, and cost-effective low-code platform is of paramount importance.
