In 2023, many modern organizations continue to struggle against the pressure to simultaneously digitalize their operations and drive sustainability programs. But it can be done – and we will cover the case of how a large Food & Beverage Manufacturer is a perfect example of how it’s done right.

In this joint discussion, Accruent expert Frederic Baudart explores digitalization and sustainability from a maintenance and operation perspective, diving into:

  • How a large Food & Beverage Manufacturer’s digital transformation efforts have helped establish the organization as a leader in the Food & Beverage Industry
  • How effective digitalization and implementation of Industry 4.0 tools can serve as a catalyst for true sustainability
  • The tools that are needed – including data aggregation, sensors, and M&R tools – to gather the data and insights
  • The role of manufacturing software like IoT sensors and CMMS/EMS systems to boost overall productivity
  • The relationship between sustainability and reliability, and how combining the two can automate processes, increase efficiencies, and create a digital thread of data

Come join us for a conversation about the future of manufacturing, green operations, and how to get it right.
