“The purpose of our smart manufacturing solutions is to improve quality and productivity, and this challenge is especially acute during this time of extensive home working,” says Paolo Guglielmini, president of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. “So, to support the industries we serve, we’re offering special access to our software and learning tools for both current customers and non-customers who can benefit from our technology.”
