Enhance productivity and agility in the automotive industry

The automotive sector must embrace digital transformational change and adopt a cloud-based unified communication approach to internal collaboration to remain competitive in today’s market. This includes leveraging new technologies to improve efficiency, productivity, and customer experiences.

For automotive businesses, digital transformation and unified communications are crucial for success. Adopting UCaaS solutions enables seamless connectivity and real-time collaboration and information sharing across departments and locations. By optimising communication channels, companies can enhance responsiveness and productivity. UCaaS provides a shared experience for employees to better embrace new ideas and values.

Automotive industry Challenges

Skills Shortage:

The automotive industry is struggling to meet business demands due to skills shortages. The sector faces an ageing workforce and a lack of interest among young people to pursue careers in the field. Additionally, the rapid pace of technological advancement is creating a shortage of skilled workers who can operate and maintain the latest manufacturing equipment and robotics used in the production process. Finally, the industry is also facing intense international competition for skilled workers. To address these challenges, the automotive industry must invest in training and development programs to attract skilled workers.


Legacy systems are a major challenge for the automotive industry as it seeks to integrate new technologies into its operations. Many automakers still rely on outdated manufacturing and supply chain systems, hindering efforts to innovate and compete. Legacy systems are also vulnerable to cyberattacks and other security threats, which pose a significant risk to automakers and their customers. To overcome these challenges, the industry must modernise its infrastructure and invest in cloud technologies to reduce cost, improve efficiency, and enhance its ability to compete in an ever-evolving marketplace.


The automotive sector faces communication challenges between employees and departments, which can lead to a lack of cohesion and hinder productivity. These challenges stem from the industry’s size and geographically dispersed teams operating across large distances and even countries. To overcome these challenges, collaboration technologies such as video conferencing, virtual workspaces, and instant messaging can be implemented. These tools facilitate seamless communication, promote teamwork, and enable knowledge sharing among employees and departments.


The automotive industry faces significant security challenges when managing mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. These devices are used extensively in the industry for tasks such as maintenance, inventory management, and communication. However, mobile devices can be vulnerable to cyber threats such as malware, phishing attacks, and data breaches, which can compromise sensitive information and disrupt operations. To overcome these challenges, the industry needs to implement robust security protocols such as mobile threat defence enabling the industry to maintain a secure mobile device ecosystem.


Streamline operations, reduce costs, and enhance safety with push to talk

Communicate in real-time and distribute critical voice or messages privately or across large groups in manufacturing, maintenance, logistics, and security. Airacom PoC radios is a critical communication tool that help the automotive sector operate smoothly and efficiently.

Increased Efficiency: PTT enables workers to promptly alert their colleagues and coordinate a response in the event of an emergency, or critical incident. Push-to-talk technology can also be a vital line of instant collaboration between teams and departments.

Cost Effective: Airacom PoC is an efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional two way radio communication. Instead of using multiple devices (smartphone and radio), PTT allows workers to communicate using a single device, which is more convenient and cost-effective to manage

Wide Area Communications: Operating over any 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, 5G, WiFi or Satellite public or private network, Airacom push to talk offers automotive companies ultra-wide area voice and messaging communications with limited infrastructure required.

UCaaS solutions are designed with comprehensive security measures built-in, such as multi-factor authentication, end-to-end encryption, and data backups. Cloud solutions also offer more scalability and flexibility compared to on-premise PBX systems, enabling companies to adjust their resources as needed. With cloud-hosted UCaaS, companies can reduce their overall infrastructure costs and minimise downtime caused by hardware issues, making it an appealing solution for companies looking to optimise their communication systems while ensuring security.
