Automotive manufacture is an area where Managed File Transfer really shines – in creating a solid transfer system, from production line, to sales floor, a company can produce unified results and create an environment of innovation and confidence, without the need for costly systems, projects or workflow management – MFT accomplishes all of these elements easily.
From Design to Production
When designing a car, or, even part of a car, it’s important to be able to collaborate as seamlessly as possible – that way, ideas won’t be lost in the rush of losing the moment to waiting for FTP to come back online – and teams can see who is working on what, when – ensuring that there are no missed developments or integrations into the design while the document is checked out. MFT also ensures that there is a full audit string to rely on should the need arise. This gives full transparency without stifling the creative process – which is essential to foster innovation and support the creation of better technology.
Production to Manufacture
Manufacture is a key area where MFT can help businesses increase workflow and productivity, and build a system around the best that technology can offer. MFT allows the distribution of plans, designs and technical specs over geographically distant locations – allowing for the best choice of locales based on budget, and quality. These factors can make the difference between creating a great product with a diversified manufacture process. MFT can also facilitate working through problems that arise from manufacture process, such as delays or the collapse of the company you subcontracted. It’s important to ensure that your agility matches your company’s needs however, which is why the auditing and workflow processes built into most MFT servers can ensure that you’re always protected, without overextending resources to set up with various companies.
Once the various parts and components are produced, MFT can support the group building and finishing the product, allowing for any changes that come up due to advances or technical / compliance needs to be met, without derailing the whole project. Managed file transfer can be the vital link in the chain allowing your company to meet and match the growing need to keep up with compliance without stifling progress or innovation.
Sales is Easy
And at the sales end of your production, rely on managed file transfer systems to support invoicing, sales, parts and more – each component in the consumer facing element of your company supported, logged and managed by easy file uploads, with security and easy access. Whether your product is being sold at a franchise you own, or an independent specialist, MFT can bridge the gap between big systems and tiny operations without compromising the internal structure of your company, allowing your motor vehicles to be available, whenever, wherever.
