Emerging Tech Showcase: Next-Gen Solutions for Real-time Field Collaboration & Workforce Connectivity

February 2 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

The world adapted to remote collaboration three years ago. It was sudden and pervasive and most of us quickly learned a myriad of virtual meeting platforms. They proved easy and effective for discussions and training sessions that would otherwise occur in a conference room. Where these platforms fell short, and still fall short, is for remote collaboration in the field. Virtual plant tours, equipment troubleshooting, maintenance training, and product demos remained cumbersome due to the hands-on nature of these tasks. Fortunately, next generation tools are emerging specifically for the field-intensive nature of advanced manufacturing and logistics.

Join us for a test drive of one such tool on Feb. 2, 2023, from 12 to 1 p.m. ET as we remotely tour Elkhart-based NIBCO, a manufacturer of valves, fittings and flow control products. NIBCO has deployed Klabra, a platform developed by Indianapolis-based Hodei Technology, as a means of eliminating the distance between the plant floor and remote subject matter expertise. Jump into the tour to experience it for yourself.
