Volkswagen Poznań is constantly evolving, always seeking new ways to support both its business and employees. Among its chief challenges, the Poznań plants faced a growing need for innovation, more agile responses to customer needs, better process automation, and enhanced data security.

"We listened closely to our colleagues from Škoda Auto who had moved to a similar technology from Extreme and were very pleased with it. We went through a couple of visits to their factories to take a closer look at their solution and compare it with our needs. We decided that ‘this was it’!"
