The Challenge

The client is a global high-end household appliances manufacturing company with subsidiaries and production facilities spread across the globe. Renowned for their cutting-edge technology, elegant designs, and energy-efficient products, they rely heavily on toolboxes throughout their operations. These toolboxes play a critical role in various aspects, including product development, manufacturing, service, and maintenance.

Packed with a multitude of tools and instruments, if not properly managed or organized, the tools can easily be misplaced or lost. Given the size of the facility, potential misplacement, and the vastness of the company’s operations, finding a specific toolbox on the premises poses a significant challenge.
