How it works

The Mobile Worker solution helps manufacturers create workplaces that are agile, adaptable, and competitive. It starts with empowering an increasingly mobile workforce with devices and productivity tools, so they can communicate and collaborate more effectively.

This solution involves integrating operational processes, manufacturing systems addressing the need for faster resolution of issues, quality control, training, and onboarding—even the inefficiency of paper-based communications.

Roles within product engineering, plant management, operations, technical, and field services are using Office 365 along with devices to create this next generation of mobile workers.
