We’ve covered the use of Microsoft’s line of Surface devices in education, aviation, and a range of other industries in great depth. The devices have been very well received by enterprises around the world thanks to their hybrid nature of offering laptop-level performance in a thin and light tablet form factor.
Industrial design and manufacturing businesses also seem to be enjoying and appreciating what the Surface Pro line has to offer, in making the jobs of their employees more convenient, thus making the companies more productive in their day-to-day operations.
Trlby Innovative is one such company where its industrial designers now have a powerful tool that can run full-fledged Windows applications like Siemens Solid Edge, while carrying their work with them wherever they are; be it at home, at the office, on the shop floor, or with customers. The flexibility that the Surface Pro offers is a game-changer, as employees can view and edit complex designs with thousands of components on the fly — no restrictions.
As for manufacturing businesses like CheerPack North America, a division of the CDF Corporation that manufactures flexible liquid packaging for the chemical, petrochemical, cosmetic, and food and beverage industries, the Surface Pro also helps them work faster in an environment where peak efficiency is a crucial factor.
“By being able to answer questions from customer service or sales quicker, a warehouse coordinator can get answers to the customers quicker,” says IT manager Alex Ivkovic. “Manufacturing is able to get access to the parts they need in a timely manner and keep manufacturing flowing. It has increased overall efficiency in the warehouse.”
