Digital Skills Partnership demystifies Automation with Numatic and Microsoft
Posted on: July 10th 2020

We hope you can join us (and spread the word amongst your audiences and through your channels) at 12:30pm on the 15th of July when for 30 minutes as part of Exeter Science Park ‘New Normal’ webinar series we have the pleasure of talking to Stuart Cochrane Head of Operations at Numatic about how a Knowledge Transfer Partnership led them to work with Bristol Robotics Lab bringing Industry 4.0 into their manufacturing and in so doing dramatically improving productivity levels.

We’ll also be joined by Nicola Dillion, Local & Regional Government Strategic Account Director for Microsoft who will be sharing examples of Automation within Local Authorities and Private Sector that have come out of the Covid-19 response and highlighting Microsoft technologies that can assist with Automation.

In a Guardian article (that we’ll look at on the webinar), 41 % of businesses surveyed globally were cited as speeding up their Automation Plans as a result of Covid-19.  We want to therefore, demystify the topic and show how Automation can be both harnassed by organisations of all sizes, through relatively simple steps right through to a whole process transformation.
