Manufacturers Prepare for 2012 Olympics

With 2012 in full force, London is preparing for the Olympics, but without proper preparation, the city could face debt.

Even manufacturers need to prepare for the event. While 40 percent of manufacturers have not made any preparations for the Olympics, demands for products and services are projected to increase. In fact, only 10 percent of manufacturers have actually introduced new systems or technologies that will allow them to flexibly manage their supply chain.

The games start at the end of June, so there’s still time to make the necessary adjustments, but manufacturers need to act fast. Because of increased traffic, routes will be greatly affected, so manufacturers, especially those in the food and beverage industry, need the right tools to create the most cost effective routes while keeping track of accounts. Manufacturers should make sure their field workers have the right tools to get the job done in the most efficient way possible, despite any impact the Olympics may have on business.

Weather you’re preparing for the Olympics or not, make sure your mobile field computer can handle a marathon (the Honeywell/LXE Marathon that is). Learn more about solutions for the manufacturing industry and start preparing.
