Operations Technology Consulting
As IT and OT lines converge, how do you determine the best approach for solving specific challenges in manufacturing? Who can you trust to help while keeping your best interests in mind? After all, there are many competing interests and agendas to balance. Technology OEMs naturally want to sell you on their platform, but that particular platform may not be the best fit for your operation. Stakeholders within your organization also influence the decision-making process, and their wants and needs must be considered.
We really needed advice from a partner who understands our manufacturing process, and we got it from MAVERICK.
