Real-Time Signage

Drive Operational Efficiency through Browser-based Data-driven Signage

Are you still manually updating white boards with markers at the end of each day or manually refreshing reports to get the desired data? Instead, imagine a digital screen in your warehouse indicating in real-time how many pallets are pending put-away or a continuously updating dashboard on the percentage of work completed in a shift compared to the total work that needs to be done in a day or even a display of your most efficient pickers.

Most business intelligence products today analyze the data for an operation or process after the process is completed. While that provides great analytics after-the-fact, there is tremendous value to be gained from real-time signage in a manufacturing or distribution environment.

Instead of generating performance reports days or hours later, this solution allows you to act immediately on performance metrics. Availability of instant performance feedback also enhances employee performance and boosts overall operations.
