Realize efficiencies by reducing data duplication

  • Integrate your manufacturing execution with your SCADA and ERP systems to eliminate redundant data recordings for the same batch. 
  • Use digital technology to manage your manufacturing process and quality control, from receiving goods to shipping them out. This will help ensure a smooth flow of data throughout your entire factory. 
  • Automate processes and make them more efficient by integrating your existing systems and IoT enabled devices like PLCs, sensors, and beacons.

The Result

iMonitor can integrate with your existing systems and IIoT devices to make production processes more efficient. The software helps you reduce paperwork and production operators and quality managers focus on their core tasks. This can reduce data duplication by at least 30%. Automate data transfers from your factory’s edge into the cloud-based system, saving you costs and time.
