The Road to Factory IT Solutions

Our Experience in Factory IT
Successfully Adding New Factory IT Applications to Existing Solutions

Based on our comprehensive knowledge from guiding multinational production companies – both mid-size and large companies such as Arla Foods – we usually start with a mapping of the existing solutions to determine how to meet the new targets, and which Factory IT applications could apply.

This incorporates IT applications for planning, laboratory, maintenance, etc. as well as more production-related applications for execution, data gathering and automation.

We have 15+ years of Experience Implementing Factory IT Solutions In Global Dairy Business
