BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (PRWEB) July 20, 2020
Notiphy, a paperless process management and connected worker platform for manufacturing, fabrication, assembly and systems integration, announced today that it has joined the NSCA (National Systems Contractors Association). The NSCA is the leading not for profit association representing the commercial electronics systems industry, and its members include manufacturers and systems integrators focused on the Pro Audio-Visual market segment.
NSCA Executive Director Chuck Wilson states: “We are pleased to welcome Notiphy to our systems integrator family and believe the timing is perfect to offer a new digital transformation in manufacturing. Notiphy addresses several issues within the Pro AV industry, and improves efficiencies and revenues, in manufacturing, assembly, fabrication, and safety and can help the integrator community transition to new service models.”
“Systems integrators and the manufacturers who generate more than $120B in annual revenues are an important market segment for Notiphy and we are pleased to partner with the NSCA and support its manufacturing and integration members,” says Notiphy Founder & CEO Bob Wise. “Notiphy enables manufacturing companies to transform their paper processes and job travelers, connect management and workers on the plant floor and provide management with the data it needs.”
Wise continues: “We are excited to work with the NSCA to offer integrators a new source of revenue selling Notiphy to their manufacturing customers. Since Notiphy can be used for safety, and documented safety checks, it will help keep workers safe and productive as we enter the new normal for manufacturing. NSCA members qualify for special pilot and trial programs designed to show process and profitability improvement within 30 days.”
According to McKinsey and Company, “The need to augment workers with technology stems in part from four major trends that are transforming the manufacturing landscape: retiring baby boomers, regionalization, the proliferation of shop-floor data, and now COVID-19. These forces are creating a workforce that is more spread out, less experienced, and more overwhelmed by data with untapped potential. Manufacturers therefore need tools that help their workers collaborate and stay connected across geographies and functions—particularly as physical distancing and tighter employee-safety measures take hold. Digital collaboration tools are primed to play a critical role in enabling workers to tap into the collective knowledge of the enterprise, solve problems with experts remotely, and turn internet of things (IoT) data from the shop floor into lasting value. We estimate that digital collaboration has the potential to unlock more than $100 billion in value—thanks in part to productivity boosts of 20 to 30 percent in collaboration-intensive work processes such as root cause investigation, supplier management, and maintenance. Embedding digital collaboration into process workflows can enable faster, better decisions that improve key performance indicators (KPIs) and drive bottom-line value.“ (Digital Collaboration for a Connected manufacturing workforce by Enno de Boer, Andy Luse, Rahul Mangla, and Kartik Trehan, McKinsey and Co.)
NSCA and FMA Economist Dr. Chris Kuehl will participate in an NSCA webinar on September 1, 2020 says “Manufacturers are facing all the issues of the past but they have been made that much more complex by the pandemic and the global response to the threat. There are still the challenges of a limited labor force and the need to eliminate waste and slack in the production process. Add in the changes to the supply chain and new protocols as a result of COVID 19 and information is more critical than ever to management."
