Use Cases in SMS for Manufacturing
Put SMS to Work for Your Business
Timely messages ensure that your manufacturing operations run like clockwork
Sometimes even the smallest things can stop big businesses dead in their tracks. A worn bearing that kills a motor—a late employee that holds up an assembly line—or a missing component that shuts down production. They’re small problems, but if you don’t get in front of them, your manufacturing operations will fall behind.
That’s why more and more manufacturers are deploying SMS in their businesses. SMS provides a powerful solution for managing everything from supply chains to production lines to staff schedules. It’s fast—nearly instantaneous. Cost effective—at just pennies per message. And it’s easy to get started with MessageMedia’s SMS platforms.
