Assuming you have a manufacturing business in operation, you can use your iPhone to run the business. This includes tracking and communicating with employees, monitoring production and updating stock levels.
1. Follow-up and communication with employees
Various apps allow you to track employee attendance, timesheets, and performance. For communication purposes, Slack or Microsoft Teams can be used to keep everyone on the same page.
2. Production monitoring
If you want to monitor your production line in real time, various applications offer this possibility. Some of them include InVision Studio, Notion and Airtable. These applications allow you to see how your production is going, identify bottlenecks and make the necessary corrections.
3. Keep inventory levels up to date
One of the biggest challenges in running a manufacturing business is keeping track of inventory levels. This is especially true if you have a large inventory that changes frequently. Various apps can help, such as Katana, SKUcloud, and StitchLabs. These apps allow you to track stock levels in real time to make informed decisions about what to produce and when to produce it.
The explosion of applications created for the management of manufacturing companies has been an important part of the developed and global expansion of the manufacturing industry. It was dubbed Industry 4.0 because it completely redesigned the organization of operations. Mobile apps have played a huge role in helping small family businesses and even large corporations adapt to this new reality.
Mobile devices used in the workplace have grown exponentially in recent years. There are now over 3 billion active smartphone users worldwide. This trend will only continue as the price of smartphones continues to drop and the capabilities of these devices continue to increase.
This increase in the use of mobile devices has led to a corresponding increase in mobile application development. Over 2 million apps are available on the two major app stores (Apple App Store and Google Play). This number will only continue to grow as more companies realize the potential of these applications.
