2021 has seen a renewed appetite for digital technology adoption. Makers are keen to plan ahead – not only for their recovery from the pandemic, but far beyond this too. Manufacturers in the Greater Manchester area are looking to beat the competition and future-proof themselves against any other potential crises. They also want to ensure they have the right skills and processes to take on new contracts, as well as uphold and deliver their existing ones competitively.
The appetite for technology really is strong in the region. When it could have been easy to use the coronavirus outbreak as a reason to postpone their digital adoption, so many have steamed on ahead with it. They’re reaping the rewards as a result, and are much further along than those who are still grappling with their day-to-day operations.
Pencilling in time away from the daily grind has allowed them to gain more than you could ever imagine. They can see things from a fresh, more strategic perspective, and they’ve set out a long-term plan to propel their businesses to success.
