"During COVID, I've witnessed some customers who have been 30 to 40 percent off their revenue," Walton commented. "Then they started two or three new lines that have bridged that gap of new line revenue. They've been able to do it with insights to their own data." 

As the global pandemic continues, more and more manufacturers are looking to technology to help drive efficiencies and adjust operations based on rapidly changing marketplace conditions.
