The car manufacturer has opted to work with a French company to accelerate the digitization of its global supply chain. Hardis Group's inventory-taking drone solution was presented to French President Emmanuel Macron when he visited the MCA Maubeuge plant alongside Renault Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn.
Hardis Group, a consulting firm, digital services company and independent software vendor, announces a joint innovation partnership with Renault to digitize the car manufacturer’s logistics processes. The agreement is a major milestone in the deployment of Hardis Group’s strategic plan, as the firm looks to harness connected devices, cloud platforms and AI solutions to accelerate the digital transformation of its manufacturing and logistics clients.
Renault has been introducing new digital technologies at its plants in recent years, and has embarked on a drive to modernize its IT system. Now, in 2018, the manufacturer has teamed up with Hardis Group to roll out a joint innovation and digitization program across its entire global supply chain. As part of the agreement, Renault has opted for Hardis Group's Reflex WMS warehouse and factory logistics management system and is currently deploying the solution at its MCA Maubeuge plant, where it trials all new digital technologies.
Renault has also deployed Hardis Group’s inventory-taking drone solution, Eyesee, which was presented to French President Emmanuel Macron and Renault Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn when they visited the Maubeuge plant on Thursday, November 8, 2018.
