As a pioneer of voice-guided work process systems, topsystem always aims to identify new trends at an early stage and incorporate them into product development. With the topsystem Technology Day, the company has created a form of event where logistics specialists from all sectors meet to exchange ideas. Tim Just, Managing Director of topsystem Systemhaus GmbH from Würselen, pointed out in his opening speech that people and IT-supported technology are the success factors of logistics. However, even in times of digitization and networking, the human being is still of greater importance, as his cognitive abilities make him superior to an automated solution in many cases," emphasized Just.
