The embedded computing market is at the center of an IoT revolution, powering everything from connected medical devices to heavy-duty mining equipment. Through these innovations companies can work smarter, safer and more productively — driving innovation, growth and new revenue streams. But there are roadblocks. Many European organisations can struggle to get the products they want, when they want, on time and to spec — with cultural misunderstandings and differing regional standards sometimes causing problems in the embedded computing space.
Not so Advantech. Our new Design To Order Service (DTOS) approach combines the best of both worlds: a strong focus on CPU engineering and manufacturing from our Taiwan HQ, plus local European design and project management expertise from a new eIOT Europe Project Management Center. It all adds up to a rapid prototyping service you can trust from an industry leader with a 35+ year history of success.
Whether you’re producing solutions for use in retail, manufacturing, medical, warehouse, fleet or construction environments, time-to-market is an essential requirement for today’s OEMs. They need to be assured that manufacturing partners truly understand their requirements, and have the skills and processes to hand to ensure projects meet customer expectations. Particularly important is ensuring that language and cultural barriers and time zone differences do not get in the way. It’s also vital to ensure that knowledge is not centralised in one particular region, so that customers get the right local support and expertise in development and project management wherever they are.
