Efforts to digitally enable the frontline industrial workforce have become increasingly common over the past several years. Research from LNS shows that over half of industrial organizations globally have undertaken Connected Frontline Workforce (CFW) initiatives. CFW has become a strategic part of Industrial Transformation (IX) initiatives as manufacturers seek to solve critical labor shortages, skills gaps, and retention issues in frontline operations.
CFW-enabling technologies hold the promise of helping companies meet their frontline workforce challenges while optimizing operational performance across safety, quality, and productivity dimensions. However, industrial business and technology leaders must navigate the uncertain waters of the relatively immature and highly fragmented CFW Applications market to capture the opportunity fully.
From their extensive analysis, LNS Research has created the CFW Applications Solution Selection Matrix™ (SSM) – a comprehensive guide intended to help manufacturers better understand, evaluate, and even select from a shortlist of CFW technology vendors.
LNS reviewed dozens of vendors within the CFW ecosystem and categorized them based on various key criteria, including product capabilities, market potential, and company presence. Augmentir was named by LNS as a leading CFW solution innovator.
Augmentir positioned as a leading front runner and innovator
According to LNS Research, Augmentir is well-positioned for future growth, with a trajectory that gives it the potential to be among a small set of likely market leaders in the CFW Applications space. This assessment is based partly on the strength of differentiated capabilities of its AI-enabled solution suite to enable proactive, data-driven performance improvement, personalization of work execution support and training, and the integration of individual and team skills and qualifications to guide workforce development and shift-specific work assignment.
Other key factors impacting Augmentir’s potential are the strength and proven experience of the leadership and management teams, strong momentum in the market, a record of successful product innovation, ecosystem partnerships, and likely continued access
to adequate funding and resources to support the expansion of go-to-market initiatives. Augmentir’s track record indicates a strong likelihood of continued growth and the potential over time to be among a select group of market leaders in
the CFW Applications space.
