“In 2015, we ran 8% better than our budgeted throughput standards, so I consider it a win. Now we’re in a position where our other plants are interested in implementing the software.”

In a manufacturing environment, meeting production goals is the number one indicator of success. Equipment downtime is a big impediment to that success, so finding out how long the equipment is down, how often it goes down and what needs to be done to fix it is like winning the information lottery. Thrive Downtime Solutions needed a way for its customers to do just that, and the custom business application we built delivers all of that and more.
Integrated reporting options provide customizable charts and graphs that help bring data to life. Users also have the option of exporting their data to create custom charts and pivot tables.
Users who don’t have time to log into the platform regularly can opt to have a Daily Digest summary emailed to them. Customizable text alerts are also available when a machine goes down.
Thrive is available from any device with an internet connection, including smartphones and tablets. Operators can access the platform right on the shop floor, and management can stay in touch from anywhere.
Many manufacturers use ERPs, making integration an essential piece of this project. Customers who use Thrive can connect it directly to their own ERP, giving them data exactly where they need it.
Thrive can read from and write to a variety of hardware, including PLCs. Integration is built-in but is not required for installation in order to accommodate customer preference and keep installation user-friendly.
