2023 L2L Connected Workforce Summit Takeaways

Earlier this May, L2L's 2023 Connected Workforce Summit kicked off in Salt Lake City, Utah. The three-day event featured well-known speakers in the discrete manufacturing space, including LNS Research Analyst Allison Kuhn, NASCAR legend Larry McReynolds, and L2L CEO John Davagian, with attendance by over 70 companies.  
The Summit also highlighted several L2L product enhancements, from intuitive new worker portals to artificial intelligence-enabled functionalities. And attendees were full of questions and ideas for how connected worker solutions could shape the future of discrete manufacturing.

"Honestly, there is so much great content," said one attendee. "We are still focusing and formulating our own road map of what our next steps are and perfecting our dispatch process."

"We are very excited about the L2L Team Board and the possibilities of role-based access," another attendee commented.

Let's take a quick look at some of the highlights from this year's Summit.

Featured Speakers

Over the course of the Summit, we were thrilled to hear from some of the brightest minds in manufacturing, covering important topics from efficiency challenges to equipping new generations of frontline workers with the right tools for success.

"We can't wait to get our hands on the new development features like Maintenance, Staffing, Assist, and collaboration tools," said one attendee.
