Reduce Manufacturing Production Downtime with InformaCast

Downtime in production due to an equipment malfunction or line stop is more than a nuisance. According to InTech, downtime costs every factory at least five percent of its productive capacity and costs many up to 20 percent.

20 percent. That means you're wasting 20 percent of the time and resources you could be using, and losing money with every minute of unnecessary downtime that ticks by.  

InformaCast can help you be as productive as possible by helping you respond faster to line stops and other events that can drain your company of precious time and money.

When an employee presses the line stop button, InformaCast automatically sends the response team an alert and information about the location of the problem. This enables them to respond faster so that production can resume sooner.

Think of all you could do if your company were 20 percent more productive. It would mean more revenue, a safer work environment, happier employees, and so much more. InformaCast can help you get there.
