are the benefits for you?
an OEM in these challenging times where
market competition has never been
tougher, not to mention global, companies
must remain competitive, and therefore
lean. Sometimes, your budget will not
allow for a dedicated design engineer or
programmer. Therefore, outsourcing a
portion of your development with a
company that will protect your interests,
such as Entertron, has benefited many
this very competitive environment, you
may have fewer people wearing more hats
of responsibility. As a result, these key
people don't have the time to work on
another project exclusively. By
partnering with Entertron, you eliminate
any learning curve required for
programming. You allow your key people to
focus on other aspects of product
development, while enabling Entertron to
focus on what it knows...programming its
ePLCs and interface products. Therefore,
you will maximize the utilization of your
resources by allowing those to specialize
on what they know, and therefore reducing
waste in the product development stage.
