Redzone Connected Workforce for Small and Medium Manufacturers

Manufacturers across the globe are grappling with unprecedented challenges from COVID-19 and an ever-changing world—demand surges, abrupt pivots, and an ongoing talent battle. Redzone’s Connected Workforce Solution is pivotal, addressing industry-wide issues by recognizing the untapped potential of underutilized frontline workers. By fostering teamwork and breaking down silos, Redzone unlocks hidden capacity, transforming challenges into opportunities for growth and sustained improvement in the manufacturing landscape.

Productivity NOW!

Redzone delivers where other shop floor technologies have failed; real results in 90 days! Whether you need additional capacity or bottom-line savings, Redzone unlocks an average improvement of 15–30% productivity – without adding people or equipment.

At the start of the engagement, we agree to a clearly defined OEE uplift goal to be achieved in 90 days, taking into account your starting point in terms of efficiency and your continuous improvement experience and maturity. This goal becomes the obsession for our collective teams.

 The Power of People

Redzone believes in unlocking extraordinary potential in ordinary people. By equipping your teams with the right technologies and skills, we create an environment where they are excited to come to work, solve problems together, and make a difference. 

In a labor-challenged industry, Redzone stands out by giving workers a voice and turning them into productivity engines, unleashing double-digit improvements in Production, Quality, and Maintenance teams through a team-of-teams approach. 

Our coaching model introduces new standard work, fostering a culture of shop floor ownership and engagement that restores pride and dignity to manufacturing.

The FIVE Cs of Redzone


Ask any plant leader what they want to improve most and they’ll say “the shop floor culture.” No other connected workforce solution addresses this critical component of human resources like Redzone.


Plants can be loud. Plants can be spread out. But that doesn’t matter if you give your workers a voice. Redzone connects everyone to everyone else with a digital identity to keep everyone in the loop.


It’s easy for functional groups to clique off into silos, but not with Redzone! The key to success is bringing Production, Quality and Maintenance teams together on a regular basis (lineside huddles, twice per shift) to team up on resolving unplanned issues to get, or stay, on track.


Rewarded behavior is repeated behavior and it’s surprising how rarely manufacturers celebrate individual, team, and even company performance. High fives, good catches and rally cries give each individual worker dignity and keep them motivated.

Continuous Improvement

The result comes back to a culture of Continuous Improvement that is driven by the frontline workforce, not just the CI team. Everyone understands how they can help and are given a voice—and an outlet—to make things happen.
