What are your Organization’s objectives for the year and how do you feel the objectives will be met during this event?  

Zetes Industries SA, through its subsidiaries, operates as a system integrator providing solutions for automatic identification of goods and people in Europe, Africa and Middle-East. Its solutions are based on barcode, voice recognition, RFID, smartcards, and biometrics technologies. The company operates in two segments, Goods Identification (Goods ID) and People Authentication (People ID). It has its headquarters in Belgium and employs more than 1200 people across 20 countries in EMEA.

Our main objective is to grow our positioning within Nigeria and West-Africa and the Nigerian Manufacturing & Equipment Expo is the best place for us to introduce ourselves and our offering.

           

What is your forecast for the manufacturing sector next year?

Today’s manufacturing industry is highly competitive, fast paced and full of challenges.

You need to be able to respond to new trends and customer demands whilst providing an excellent brand experience. Manufacturers must now consider themselves as a key part of a collaborative supply chain network comprising suppliers, distribution centres, warehouses and transport operations. Zetes understands the importance of a connected and responsive supply chain. Our solutions are designed to help you manage customer expectations and mitigate risks to your business. By working with us, you will always deliver on your brand promise.

 

How do you think Nigeria Manufacturing Expo/, a platform that brings together the entire value chain of manufacturing sector can help the manufacturing sector?

Given the speed with which disruptors can innovate to change the market and raise customer expectations, manufacturers face growing pressure to improve speed, accuracy and agility. Based on the findings by Sapio Research for the Zetes Manufacturing Report we know that organisations have an array of tools in place but too few have achieved the real-time, connected collaboration that is becoming increasingly essential to remain competitive. The pressure is on to bridge that gap between essential information visibility requirements and current operational reality. The Nigeria Manufacturing Expo is at the centre of the West African Manufacturing community – with a variety of industry leaders in attendance the focus is on  ensuring the various stakeholders in any given organisation share key information between departments and that the decision makers have access to the information required to make informed business decisions.
