Connected Shopfloor: This app seamlessly ties in various operations and reporting data across the plant floor. It performs time and attendance, reporting OEE on dashboards, and working with various orders in production. It replaces numerous manual processes, automating what was formerly done manually on paper each day. The app seamlessly works with their ERP, reducing data-entry time and streamlining tasks that users can visualise in a single view and screen. Quality Inspection: This workbench app enables inspections and audits to be done through the user’s choice of mobile device. As audits happen, it allows for paperless inspection workflows and data collection in real time. As inspection data is gathered, the workbench also shows a dashboard of the production lines running and overall achievement for the day, week, and month. Customer Portal: This app is integrated with the company’s web page and enables quicker and easier communication with customers and dealers. As customers and dealers submit orders or requests for services, it allows this information to write back to their ERP, creating open order requests and tickets.
