“We love how Redzone uses everyday technology features such as social chats and alerts for manufacturing purposes. Our teams love their iPads filled with real-time intelligence on how their lines are running and what actions should be done to correct issues as they happen. This immediacy is helping us maximize our capacity opportunities.”

Let the cloud manage your app while you run your business
On-premise apps have always been cumbersome, expensive and prone to complexity. In addition to the physical requirements of space, bandwidth, and hardware they often have a complicated software stack that needs a team of experts to install, configure, and maintain them.

Cloud computing eliminates these issues. Instead of managing applications in-house, they run in a secure shared data center resourced by experts. Once configured for your organization (which only takes days) you just login and start using it. And since upgrades are done automatically you don’t need to worry about ongoing maintenance issues either.

The Manufacturing Execution System Redzone uses cloud-based technologies to deploy the capabilities across the diverse user community it serves. Role-based, it has been designed to suit the needs of shop floor personnel who are 'on the go' and away from traditional office technology spaces..

Benefits

  • Dramatic-faster commissioning: 1 week instead of the usual 3-6 months
  • Familiar, intuitive IPad/IPhone interactions make the app effortless
  • The subscription model ensures you only pay for what you use and are generating more savings each quarter than your investment without the traditional up-front capital investment
  • Avoid the typical hidden costs associated with upgrades, version control, database management and poor introduction of new capabilities to your workforce. Updates are now rolled out seamlessly throughout the year at no additional cost
  • Recognized hosting services ensure your solution is secure, fast & reliable
