The fourth industrial revolution is well underway; Industry 4.0, originally coined by the German Ministry of Education and Research is the biggest challenge to cheap labour in the modern era. North American and European manufacturing sectors are creating ever greater efficiencies while making higher quality complex components thanks to higher investments in robotics, better software, and introducing the Internet of Things to the factory floor. The birth of the smart factory is the most exciting change to manufacturing in decades and it also means a new wave of investment in better equipment, machine tools, and human-machine interfaces like touchscreens.

Identify, Track, Trigger: How Intelligent Auto Dealer Chat Works

Written by David Jones on June 14, 2017

Live auto dealer chat is not just the latest tool every dealer should have in their marketing arsenal, it’s also one of the most effective ways to optimize your website, generate more organic leads online, and build better customer relations. Live auto dealer chat works best when it’s fully managed, but still gives your sales team a chance to monitor and even intervene, so that they can provide their expertise and sales tactics when they have the time to jump in.

LG Skins: Protection That Doesn’t Come at a Cost

Written by David Seah on February 16, 2017

The LG G5 is no Galaxy S7. Though it’s certainly one of the better phones released in 2016, it hasn’t quite turned out to be the darling of the tech world like Samsung’s flagship mobile. It still makes it on the year’s top 10 list of best phones, but it’s nowhere near the number one position. A lot of people were disappointed with the G5, including critics. They’ve docked the smartphone significant points for not living up to its full modular potential. But say what you will about the latest LG, as an owner of the G5, you know it’s still the most customizable smartphone on the market today. Though its modular design is limited compared to critics’ imaginations, you can still add and subtract cool accessories to the phone — which is more than any other phone. So until Google releases the Ara, you’ve got an innovative cellphone in your pocket. (more…)
