Workforce Manager

Frontline managers need complete visibility and control of the shop floor to prevent problems such as overruns, downtime, poor employee or machine performance and excessive scrap from occurring. Collecting this data by conventional methods can be complicated, time-consuming and expensive. Workforce Manager is a data collection, tracking and analysis solution providing manufacturers with real-time shop floor visibility, helping to eliminate manual processes and increase productivity. It enables you to execute production plans while simply and accurately capturing and measuring activities on the factory floor such as labor hours, materials issued, quantities reported, scrap and more.

Workforce Manager provides you with the following benefits:

  • Simple and accurate data collection
  • Real time tracking
  • Powerful employee analysis
  • Quick start functionality

Factory Manager

Production machinery and resources generate vast quantities of data on an ongoing basis. Capturing this data and organizing it a way that it can be used to increase output and reduce costs is a major challenge for manufacturers. Factory Manager is an online document, tracking and analysis solution, helping manufacturers to improve their performance and reduce firefighting. Factory Manager also allows you to record and monitor issues such as machine downtime, calibration, tooling problems, employee leave and accidents. This helps you to evaluate recurrent issues, reduce downtime and create workflows to prevent future incidents. It also allows you to capture feeds from your machines, software and personnel and share important metrics with your team, from anywhere, at any-time and on any device. You can create a truly paperless shop floor by allowing the online attachment of documents, videos, forms and sign off records, with full archive functionality for audit purposes.

Factory Manager provides you with the following benefits:

  • Eliminate paper from the shop floor
  • Measure and minimize downtime
  • Increase factory output
  • Outperform competitors
