How can we help your business?
The Digital Manufacturing on a Shoestring programme is developing an affordable, non-invasive, easy to implement approach for companies who want to start trying out digital solutions right away.
The project integrates low cost, off-the-shelf technologies such as QR scanners, WiFi cameras, sensors and micro-computers, along with openly available software, into digital solutions for industry – all from as little as £200.
With input from more than 450 companies in the UK and overseas, Shoestring has built up an accurate picture of the common digital challenges facing small-to-medium sized companies today; many of which can be matched and addressed with a low-cost solution.
