Modern manufacturers need the tools to respond to a constantly evolving market. Customers change their minds. Supply chains break down. The shop floor does not always run at 100% efficiency. Managing all of this whilst still providing your customers with outstanding customer service is no mean feat.
All manufacturers understand that adopting digital technologies can transform operations and significantly increase efficiencies, profitability and growth, however the process of achieving that aim can seem a daunting and difficult road to follow.
Xperience in Manufacturing
Traditional systems have focussed on the office function and have not effectively interacted with the staff working on the shop floor. Job sheets are passed between work centres to capture key information including production time and QC results. This information is then manually keyed back into the ERP system by staff in the office.
Moreover, with many operations still relying on paper-based processes, significant overhead is required to ensure paperwork is current and easily accessible. With staff having to do manual checks on jobs and orders, this has a significant impact on customer satisfaction. Whereas using a shop floor data capture system, the job is updated in real-time allowing office-based staff to access it in seconds and respond to queries instantly.
Xperience leverage market-leading manufacturing systems to close the production loop. We provide real-time access, to shop floor staff, to allow them to capture their time, see work order details using a dynamic and fully integrated platform. Instant access to this key information allows forward-thinking businesses to react to changing demands, increase profits and stay ahead of their competitors.
We help over 160 manufacturing clients solve the challenges that face their businesses. From providing shop floor apps, accessible via an Android tablet, to give the information to the shop floor and capture actual production times for analysis to providing the tools to ensure, components are bought on time, bottlenecks are managed so that your customers get the products they need, when they need them.
