The Connected Worker converges different technology trends such as Cloud, mobile, web, chat, social, wearables, AI/ML (artificial intelligence/machine learning) to change the entire working life of a companies’ front-line workers. During COVID, it is more important than ever that manufacturers enable workers with important ERP (enterprise resource planning) operational data, as well as empower them with step-by-step guided work instructions that ensure the job is done faster, more accurately, reducing costs, and enhancing safety. 

Cutler profiled Sundeep Ravande, CEO of Innovapptive Inc. Ravande believes in a better way of running operations. In most manufacturing enterprises, operations are a set of tedious linear steps – slow, inaccurate, and highly inefficient. Ravande believes field work can be done faster, cheaper, and safer. By digitally and autonomously connecting humans, machines, and workflows in the 21st century economy, a Connected Workforce will be part of the global manufacturing experience..
