Georgia-based solutions company, Shopfloor Support has launched a new wireless data collection and real-time production control solution for sewn products and other product manufacturers.
Shopfloor Eye is an app available for Android devices that collects production data and offers workers, supervisors and managers real-time production visibility and control. The company claims the solution will make real-time shop floor control more accessible and affordable to a wide variety of manufacturers.
“We are breaking down the barriers that have traditionally held manufacturers back from adopting real-time controls,” Justin Hershoran, a partner in Shopfloor Support said. “By leveraging readily available technologies, any company can now benefit from the productivity, management and many other improvements available through this easy to install and use business app. To further simplify deployment, we developed Shopfloor Eye as a plug-in technology that can easily integrate or be embedded into established ERP, reporting, payroll and other production-related systems so that they can offer state of the industry SFC ‘Powered by Shopfloor’.”
In order to promote adoption of the app, Shopfloor Support is establishing distribution channels through select enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other manufacturing related technology, equipment and service companies to serve as value-added reseller (VAR) or referral partners.
“We are excited to partner with successful distributors to bring innovations ‘Powered by Shopfloor’ to manufacturers across multiple industries and around the globe,” said Shopfloor Support partner Per Bringle. “While our system simplifies the deployment, use and maintenance of SFC, manufacturers can expect to gain the complete range of benefits from a real-time environment that drive a record-fast return on investment. Some of the most important capabilities include time and attendance, source to gross incentive payroll, worker instructions and performance feedback, order/work in process tracking, individual/team productivity and efficiency, off-standard time accounting, quality control, machine downtime, basic chat communications and more.”
The app is offered with a pay-per-use model that charges based on the number of users that log in to the system each day.
