Manufacturing and engineering professionals report it’s harder to find information while working remotely, with over 46 minutes wasted each day looking for information, on average, per person.

Research sponsored by Sinequa, a player within intelligent Enterprise Search, has uncovered new challenges in finding information when working remotely for the manufacturing and engineering sectors.

Finding the information that manufacturing and engineering professionals need to carry out their jobs is becoming harder than ever, with 41% of workers say it’s harder to find the information they are looking for when working remotely. As a result, manufacturing and engineering businesses are increasingly looking to implement digital workplace solutions to help employees get their work done.
