Protecting and connecting your workforce

We’ve worked in this sector for nearly 30 years and have a wealth of experience helping companies such as Sanofi, Pepsico, Celeanse, Lonza and many more. The common challenges our customers face, fall into 3 broad areas; connectivity, staff protection and monitoring and alerting. We provide solutions to all of these issues, which helps keep the plant running smoothly and efficiently.   


Connecting your on-site mobile workforce 

Connectivity today is far easier with the mobile 2G, 3G and 4G technology, although not all businesses can rely on it. Many manufacturing businesses are situated in rural areas with little coverage or have building structures that mobile reception can’t penetrate. Some companies simply don’t want to give their employees a mobile or smartphone.


When cellular technology is not an option, what is?

There’s good news - there are a number of different platforms to choose from including; IP DECT, Digital Radio, VoWiFi and PMN, which means you can deploy the right technology to meet your users, environment and infrastructure needs. However, working out which best platform is best for you, can take time and can be frustrating, unless you have help. This is where we can assist you. Get in touch with our team of experts and we’ll advise which platform is best for you. 


Protecting staff working alone

Lone working is common in manufacturing plants with employees working alone during the day, evening, night or at weekends. Staff are often required to work near or operate potentially dangerous machinery, so it’s important that in the event of an accident, they receive help quickly to save them from further harm. No one should be left in a situation where they are unable to call for help or alert others when their life is in danger.


If you have staff working alone in your plant, we can help you to provide the right level of protection. We offer a range of lone working solutions and can work with you to assess your employees needs and determine which technology would be best suited should an incident occur. You may also be able to use existing equipment, which would help keep costs down and means your workers don’t need to carry multiple devices.


Monitoring and Alerting

We help our customers manage and respond better to critical alarms. We know production efficiency is important and that any delays due to faulty machinery slows production and increases costs unless managed effectively.


Distributing critical alarms directly to teams that need to deal with on-site emergencies dramatically reduces machine downtime. Furthermore, reacting early to machine failure warnings means any potential issue can be rectified without affecting production and causing unnecessary wastages and costs.
