Manufacturing Industry

The Internet of Things and connected device revolution are turning the world of manufacturing upside down. For many manufacturers, particularly those in high-tech fields like medical device manufacturers, R&D departments spend too much time supporting their own tools. More time spent supporting tools means less time spent developing new products. In the current breakneck product release environment, it’s important to not lose any time on distracting, time consuming and ultimately unrewarding tasks when SPK and Associates can handle them for you.

The IoT revolution requires that R&D incorporate strong information technology skills into their product lifecycle, such as networking, cybersecurity, and systems management.  SPK partners closely with our customers as part of their product development team, contributing necessary IT technical expertise to the product development process.

What our customers say about us

Our company had a plan for cloud implementation but we weren’t sure if we were making the right decisions on a few areas, including security.  When we engaged SPK, not only did they validate our plan, they provided so much more insight than we originally thought about and helped revamp our cloud plan for the better.

The personalized attention and detailed communication we receive working with SPK and Associates  is pretty special.  The accessibility of SPK team members is impressive, as is their flexibility accommodating the needs of our team and project.

Evan B

Director, Product Development, Leading Medical Device Manufacturer

SPK is proactive and from what I have observed, other IT firms are reactive. SPK is always doing things and solving problems before they make an impact. They drive innovation and suggest ideas to not only fix but improve systems and processes. They have the expertise to maintain and sustain our tools year to year.
