Supporting IT is more than just a techie skill. The best providers also understand the specific needs of your industry: how you use tech, the software programs specific to your industry, and the regulatory environment you face.

We specialize in managed tech services to the manufacturing industry.

    Do you have an IT service provider that understands the manufacturing industry?

  1. Will criminals pilfer your trade secrets and I.P?
  2. Cyber criminals know the value of the data you safeguard. Manufacturing companies receive the largest volume of cyber-attacks, after energy companies. Last year, 67% of companies in these industries had at least one breach that resulted in a loss of data and/or the disruption of operations. You can’t afford to be one of them.

    Slappey can provide ideas on how to leverage outside expertise to keep your company safe.

  3. The manufacturing sector is ripe for disruption. Are you ready?
  4. The future is here, it's just not evenly distributed. Advances such as cloud computing, improved predictive data-sorting software, or the Internet of Things are enabling companies to produce precisely customized products cheaply and efficiently. Firms that harness these technologies will have a significant advantage over those that don’t.

    Slappey can provide ideas on how free up resources for tech innovation, and how to recognize disruptive technologies.

  5. Treat your network like you treat your workers
  6. You know that it is better to put in safety procedures to prevent workplace accidents than to try to fix things afterward. The same principal applies to security networks. If the system was downed by hackers, could you remain competitive? What would happen if your servers went out NOW?

    Slappey can provide ideas on how deploy preventive care for your network.

  7. Have you ascended to the cloud yet?
  8. If your company is not in the cloud, then you’re behind 93% of your peers. You will have a hard time competing against their lower overhead costs, increased flexibility, and improved data preservation abilities. Even if you are, you shouldn’t pat yourself on the back just yet. If you’re not managing the cloud properly, you’re vulnerable to cyberattacks.

    Slappey can provide ideas on how to maximize your benefits while minimizing your risks.

  9. Are you ready for the Internet of Things?
  10. You're about to witness the next wave of manufacturing innovation. Already, 35% of US manufacturing companies are using smart sensors to boost efficiency and 34% consider embracing the Internet of Things "critical" to their operations.

    Companies that successfully adopt this technology will have:

    • More data
    • More timely data
    • Better filtered data

    However, for companies that employ this technology, cyber security will be more important than ever.
