Reduce Manufacturing Costs Through Efficient IT Infrastructure
There’s a good reason why today’s most successful manufacturers are efficiency-driven – some might even say efficiency-obsessed – and we think this is a good thing! The ability to produce high-quality products is only as valuable as the inherent costs of making those products.
We believe that to offer the best office technology, service, and solutions it is critical that we know the businesses and communities we support. That is why we are so proud to work with businesses in the Manufacturing and Agriculture sectors. The geographical territory that we serve has an economy that is primarily driven by agriculture and manufacturing.
In addition to providing the products and services they need to run their businesses; we work to take our relationship a step further from provider or vendor to a valued expert and a key partner. We have had the opportunity to serve this vertical and help them overcome some of the key business challenge they face.

COUNSEL & WIDWEST OFFICE AUTOMATIONS TOOLS FOR EVERYONE IN YOUR BUSINESS
Efficiency-oriented manufacturing executives know the transformative power of great communication. More than ever, the manufacturer’s IT network is a communication network, telling employees what projects to focus on and giving up-to-date reports to management so that they can improve processes even more. Counsel & Midwest Office Automations have the tools to keep everyone in the office secure and productive! Take a look at some of the challenges we can solve for the departments and teams in your business!
Securely Print & Access Documents Anywhere
Executives, Supervisors, & Remote Workers
Whether you’re at an offsite location, working from home, or just need to print to a device that isn’t yours, we have solutions to help you review, retrieve, or print your documents wherever their needed. Mobile print makes it easy for on-the-go manufacturing and agriculture employees to use print assets directly from their smartphones and tablet computers. This is important because it significantly reduces the amount of time spent sending documents back and forth for printing, and it improves mobile security for the entire company.
Save Time & Prevent Unexpected Expenses
Accountants need to have access to the most precise, up-to-date data on manufacturing processes in order to do their jobs. Automated workflows make it easy for accountants to gather the data they are looking for and create comprehensive reports that inform the executive decision-making process.
Communicate with Customers & Employees in Multiple Languages
Human Resources & Administration
Communication is critical in every business, but especially in Manufacturing and Agriculture where job safety is critical to employee health and wellbeing. We know that while many companies have someone in house who can communicate in 2 or more languages, that person often has other key responsibilities. Take the worry and stress away and free up your employees to do their primary jobs with Xerox Easy Translate. This state of the art App and Software enables you to quickly translate documents to any of 100 languages – everything from warning signs to manuals- and offers additional options like human translation and experts in your industry to edit as needed.
Administration, IT Department, Accounting
Efficient document management helps large industries reduce manufacturing costs indirectly, but significantly. Employees who spend time looking for documents and training materials cannot effectively do their jobs if those materials are not ready at hand. COUNSEL and Midwest Office Automations solutions can implement highly organized electronic document management for manufacturer databases.
Managed Print Services
IT Department, Accounting, & Administration
Manufacturing IT teams have their hands full checking, verifying, and updating the heavy machinery that directly generates value. There is no need for a manufacturer’s IT team to spend time replacing print consumables or fixing broken printers – these low-impact workflows are ideally suited to our managed print services team.
Security and Compliance
IT Department, HR, Executives
Manufacturing cybersecurity means more than preventing costly ransomware attacks. It also means preventing corporate espionage. Implementing an IT infrastructure solution that protects trade secrets while remaining compliant with all applicable regulations is a job for our highly qualified developers.
Analysis and Reporting
Executives, Accounting, Administration
Manufacturing executives need to keep their eyes on print audits and financial reports in order to make sure their businesses remain profitable and sustainable. Our analysis software can make a significant difference towards ensuring that management has access to accurate, up-to-the-minute data on their most critical processes.
Workflow Automation and Application Development
IT Department, Supervisors, HR, Administration
Industry engineers know how important workflow automation is when physically building products. The same is true when building digital databases and reporting on intangible assets. Our developers can automate manufacturing & agriculture workflow reporting and develop customized applications for our manufacturing partners.
