Transforming to find greater savings and speed
Innovations from Jinlong Machinery & Electronics Co. Ltd., commonly known as KOTL, keep industries moving. The company focuses on the R&D, manufacture, and sales of motors, structural components, LCD modules, and precision components of automation equipment. Established in 1986 and listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2009, KOTL has continued to grow and innovate, today providing key components for leading smartphone manufacturers around the world.
However, as the price of cutting-edge core smartphone components – such as microchips – continues to soar, smartphone brands have passed their cost pressure onto suppliers such as KOTL. Facing a spike in the cost of raw materials, the company needed to find a way to lower the price of its own products.
KOTL began planning a digital transformation that it hoped would increase efficiency across the enterprise. Specifically, the company set out to modernize its legacy IT infrastructure and eliminate data silos, empowering management to make better decisions that could save the business time and money.
