In the pursuit of cost savings, many companies today set out to find the cheapest labor available. The strategy is called low-cost country sourcing (LCCS), but is it really the way to success?
In a recent Reset ’17 event, Roima’s CEO Jukka Ropponen explained why the focus should be shifted from labor costs to more intelligent production, product quality and price. At any rate, labor cost gap between high- and low-cost countries is shrinking.
Increasing automation in factories does not eliminate the need for human labour, nor does it need to. Human contribution creates legitimate added value. A recent example of successful collaboration between advanced automation technology and highly skilled human professionals is the much-praised Uusikaupunki car plant of our valued client Valmet Automotive.
We at Roima have our clients’ competitiveness at heart – that is what we work for. The success of our clients is a mutual benefit.
Let’s boost the competitiveness of your businesses through intelligent technology, automation and a team of talented, motivated professionals!
