For manufacturing enterprises, communication is a key ingredient to success. The ability to connect disparate parts of the company can improve relationships and team dynamics. Today’s manufacturing enterprise needs its communication systems to evolve along with other areas of the industry that are constantly changing.
Cloud communications are becoming the new norm in the manufacturing industry (and other industries worldwide). Today’s cloud-based collaboration tools can consolidate communications into one central platform, making communication faster, easier, higher quality and more organized. Cisco Webex, for example, can streamline workflows in various departments, including product development, R&D, logistics and customer service. This improvement can boost many areas of the enterprise, including:
- Employee mobility and morale with user-friendly applications.
- Employee reachability and availability with advanced collaboration tools.
- Lower wait times for responses critical to operations.
Adopting Cloud Collaboration
High-quality, user-friendly calling capabilities can bring employees, teams, departments, vendors and customers together, allowing your network to collaborate in new, innovative ways.
Cisco Webex is a great way for your enterprise to move from on-premises communication systems to the cloud, improving global connectivity. Cisco’s Webex Flex plan is popular in the manufacturing industry, as it provides industry-leading collaboration tools with a single subscription-based offer. The Flex Plan allows you to incrementally move collaboration tools to the cloud on your schedule.
How Others Made the Switch

MTS Systems is one of many global companies that are making the switch to cloud collaboration. If a cloud migration seems daunting, you’re not alone – many manufacturing companies partner with a cloud expert with experience in their industry to facilitate a smooth transition and a final result tailored to them.
