Infrastructure means a variety of things and raises very different challenges depending on where in the lifecycle you are sitting, from the physical construction phase through to the day to day operations, yet one feature applies across the board- a wish to improve efficiency and effectiveness of whatever is being done.
Dematic sits at the forefront of this overarching desire, helping our customers to innovate and deliver things better through the smart deployment of the correct IT driven solutions. Just because something has always been done one way, does not mean that it can’t be done a different way and better.
Within the major construction industry, and specifically its multi-tiered approach to delivery, the current buzz words seem to centre on ‘collaboration’ and ‘value engineering’. Key attributes to help facilitate this is availability of the correct data to the necessary recipients, and also certainty around resource delivery and availability- in a nut shell ‘scheduling and tracking’.
The day to day operation itself also raises very different challenges depending on where in the landscape you reside. It ranges from the running of a physical operational site, for example a quayside or an airport, through to provision of an optimised infrastructure network. How the smart use of technology can drive change is never more clearly shown than the impact of Uber on taxi circuits around the world.
Dematic specific domain and cross sector know how, allows us to be perfectly placed to take a well proven concept widely deployed in one industry and then to adapt it to allow it work within an infrastructure setting.
