TeamViewer: Embrace Advanced Manufacturing Technology

Mei Dent, Chief Product and Technology Officer at TeamViewer, warns that the time to embrace advanced technologies for manufacturing success is now

Manufacturing construction spending has doubled since 2021, as more manufacturers embrace the advanced technologies that comprise the metaverse, in order to support smart factories and Industry 4.0 initiatives. 

Software Development company TeamViewer warns that there is a gap between manufacturers who embrace advanced technologies into their OT systems and those who don’t. 


Pioneering connectivity solutions in the Industrial Metaverse

Headquartered in Goppingen, Germany, TeamViewer is a leading global technology company which offers connectivity technology to remotely access, control, manage, monitor and repair devices of any kind – from laptops and mobile phones to industrial machines and robots. Installed on more than 2.5bn devices all over the world, TeamViewer enables companies of all sizes and industries to digitalise their core processes.

Embracing advanced technologies for manufacturing transformation

According to Mei Dent, Chief Product and Technology Officer at TeamViewer, the convergence of IT and Operational Technology, alongside the adoption of advanced technologies like AI, edge analytics, and AR/VR, is driving rapid transformation across the manufacturing landscape.

“By bringing IT and OT systems together, businesses can increase quality and productivity across their operations. It is not only about remotely connecting to a device or machine but going one step further to collect and analyse operational data to drive automation and control. As well as using augmented reality/mixed reality technology to improve usability and collaboration,” says Dent.

However, a gap is emerging between those who embrace these innovations and those who remain hesitant. 

“Companies like Hyundai are already incorporating these technologies to gain significant advantages. For instance, in efficiency, streamlining processes and minimising human error, whilst also empowering its staff to gain new skills and make data-driven decisions.” 

Dent warns that businesses who resist risk competitive disadvantage and hindering the development of specialised solutions, particularly where complex industrial equipment is needed, for example in warehouses, logistics and aerospace environments. 

“2024 will likely see this gap widen further and leaders need to act proactively,” she says. “Adopting advanced technologies is no longer an option for manufacturers seeking to remain competitive and offer superior experiences.” 

The time for manufacturers to act is now, before the gap becomes unbridgeable.
