Keeping your frontline workers safe, mobile and efficient 
is critical in the current environment.

Food production companies around the globe are working hard to keep critical operations going during Covid-19.  Connected Worker technology is helping many food and beverage companies maintain their critical operations right now – keeping workers safe while at the same time ensuring quality, productivity and efficiency.  Those that haven’t digitized their frontline workers are struggling as they face increased production demand at the same time as required social distancing and remote work brought on by COVID 19.

Join over 500 food industry leaders this June and learn how to leverage connected worker technology to improve operational efficiency, training, asset management, quality, and safety.

You'll learn how to:
  • Create a safer work environment, boost compliance and improve efficiencies through automation
  • Increase employee productivity and reduce time to market
  • Leverage connected worker technology to ensure you produce safe, quality food  
  • Identify opportunities to improve worker skills, enhance workforce development and training, and build a culture of continuous improvement
  • Adapt to the new post Covid 19 reality and build agility and flexibility into your operations
  • Empower front-line employees with a dynamic Connected Worker strategy
  • Provide a consolidated view to link your front-line workers to the information they need – when they need it most
  • Measure the ROI of connected worker technologies so you can build the business case now
