HITACHI Construction Machinery Zambia has embarked on digital transformation and has since selected DSI’s ScanWorkX solution to provide immediate advanced scanning capabilities.
The advanced scanning solution will provide immediate enhanced, automated data capture functionality, eliminating manual processes and provide comprehensive inventory visibility.
Hitachi Zambia Company President Hideki Hattori said Hitachi Zambia is proud to announce that it has selected ScanWorkX to be the solution at this key stage in our digital transformation.
