Intelligent manufacturing solutions

Drive efficiencies by optimising data exchange and delivering real-time actionable insights

Like nearly everything in today’s world, manufacturing operations are going through a radical transformation. The industrial revolution brought us electricity and assembly lines. The automation revolution brought us more advanced electronics and computer systems. The new intelligent revolution has modern manufacturers recognising the next level of technology implementation — and it starts with connected systems, internet of things applications, cloud computing, and improved communication networks. That may sound complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. The concept is simple. By implementing modern methods of identification — such as advanced barcoding & labelling technologies, RFID, machine connectivity, and business system integration – organisations are now unlocking a level of visibility into their operations that has only recently become possible.

The visibility you need to revolutionise your operations:

  • Real-time information

    – know what’s happening when it’s happening—and why
  • Operational flexibility

    – adjust quickly to changing production needs
  • Seamless productivity

    – manage assets and inventory holistically and scale on demand
  • Customised solutions

    – easily customise data exchanges and workflows
