Sanmina: Supporting workers from the factory to the boardroom with Chrome Enterprise


Sanmina, a San Jose-based creator of end-to-end systems for OEM manufacturers, wanted to shift its frontline workers from time-consuming paper-based processes and workflows to the cloud. Sanmina’s products are complex and often perform critical roles in sensitive healthcare and defense settings that require high reliability and quality control, so equipping workers with accurate information to and from the factory floor is essential. In Sanmina’s office settings, workers also needed collaboration tools to help improve global operations and streamline complex design processes.

Sanmina chose Chrome Enterprise and Chrome devices for their adaptability to both factory and office settings, as well as easier management, flexibility, and security. The company added Google Workspace to improve everyday productivity.

Building a more efficient supply chain with cloud tools

To support workers in many different roles, Sanmina uses a variety of Chrome devices. Chromebases replaced old desktops in offices, and in manufacturing areas, are connected to mountable touchscreen monitors; Chromebooks or Chrome tablets are provided to workers on the go. CloudReady from Neverware easily converted old PCs into fully functioning Chrome devices. ChromeOS is compatible with 42Q, Sanmina’s supply chain software. Sanima uses Cameyo to help workers access applications from outside vendors. With Google Workspace, and in particular, Google Drive, Sanmina employees can create and store shareable documents in the cloud, and use Meet to connect with colleagues.

ChromeOS is empowering everyone at Sanmina to be a cloud worker.
