Industry and Commerce 4.0 automation and digitization as cornerstone for future success

Your production machinery, the administration of purchase orders and maintenance as well as an efficient sales department are no longer separated processes in modern trade and industry. Automation and digitization are progressing and industry and trade companies face the challenge of competently processing all information and data. Can companies master the changeover to Industry and Commerce 4.0 effortlessly?


Besides traditional operational aspects in industry and commerce, data and digital information have become increasingly important over the last decades. If possible, data flows are to be controlled in real time and existing data is to be used efficiently and successfully along the entire value chain. This requires well-tried and elaborate applications from the IT environment that meet all technical and business aspects of your company and that prove to be efficient solutions.

What do Industry and Commerce 4.0 actually mean?

The term describes the progressive digitization of all corporate divisions in commerce and industry. Thanks to smart machines and plants, the production division is also part of digitization. Taking into account advanced achievements of the information and production technology, production sites and even single components are networked online and automatically communicate with each other. In all production divisions, machines are becoming smarter, automatically recognize production errors or deviations and are able to deliver individual goods according to the specific requirements of the customer. Increasing digitization ensures optimized warehouse stocks and easy order processing in the whole trade sector (not only e-commerce). Consequently, your employees do no longer have to interfere manually or to a limited extend only.
