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.
